This is a classic, and one of my favorite Freberg ads.  If you're not familiar with the spot (done for the Station Representatives Assoc.) listen to it here:

Stan Freberg made some spots promoting radio over television back in the
late 50's. (Although the dimensions in this example are dated, you'll get
the idea.) He described a fantastic scene with lots of supportive sound
effects. He then says, "You see, radio stretches your imagination." Someone
then asks, "But doesn't television stretch your imagination?", to which
Freberg replies, "Yes---up to 21 inches."
