A collection of televison commercials for Jacksonville, Florida, radio stations, from the early 70's to the mid 90's.
In the 1960s, 70s, and into the 80s, the big AM radio station along the U.S. eastern seaboard was WAPE "The Big Ape" in Jacksonville. WAPE put out a monster 50,000-watt signal on 690 that blanketed the east coast from Washington DC to Miami. "The Mighty 690" was the "home town station" for communities throughout the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida. This is a 2-minute composite clip of the Dino Summerlin Show from "The Big Ape" in early 1965, accompanied by a few vintage postcard views of Jacksonville. Picture yourself back in the 1960s, speeding along a back road somewhere in the Southeast, listening as the miles roll by to the Country Club of the South.....The Big Ape.....The Mighty 690.....from Jacksonville!
Radio is a tough business!
Thanks to my #1 dog Rough Rider who helped me hang ten alts, and to Real Steel, Mister T, Audio Driver, Blade Runner, Mr Double Nickle, Porky, Salt Water Taffy, Fat Boy, Blue Ghost and others over the years who have helped make a pipe dream, a reality.
This Radio commercial was a PSA for Shred for Good's secure document destruction event in Northeast Florida. ============================================================================ See more of our creative content at http://www.drawinglinesmedia.com #drawinglinestv

I found camera tapes and minidisc audio last weekend, and decided to cut the whole show, as I love this band and these guys. This is really good stuff. Hopefully I'll get one new one out a week. This one is from the middle of the set .
