From: "Roger and Allison Kulp" <[log in to unmask]>
> This begs a question.When were radio commercials/station IDs first recorded on
record ? The date on this is 1931.Somewhere in storage,I have a 12" 78
acetate/lacquer,of station ID spots for KTAR,Phoenix.This dates from 1937,and
has professionally printed labels with the call letters on it.I also have a
78,pressed by Columbia,during the "Viva-Tonal" era,with a 2-3 minute spot,for
Kellogg Furniture.This has the usual Columbia writing at the bottom of the
label,but no Columbia logo anywhere.
I have a 1929 Victor-pressed disc apparently intended to promote a movie
through being played on radio (can't recall the film's title off-hand,
though). IIRC, I also have an earlier, possibly acoustic (details fergot)
Compo pressing which seems to have been meant for the same purpose...
