BONUS: 2017 TV Ad

    Recorded off WDIV, our Detroit NBC affiliate, during Thursday’s Tonight Show...

    What happened to the 2016 TV commercial? Funny you should ask. This is all I managed to catch, recorded February 26 2016 (also during The Tonight Show).  It’s been sitting on my DVR for over a year.

BONUS: 2017 Radio Ad

    I caught the “standard” radio commercial today.
    Once again I was monitoring WCSX 94.7 FM, and it aired at around 10:50 AM.

    Notice the change in sound quality?  This recording is a bit cleaner, without any booming bass.  I bought myself a new boombox last Christmas, with a cool Bluetooth feature where I can send it music off my phone.  I was looking forward to seeing how it work in recording these commercials—especially since my old boombox didn’t have a working antenna!  I was hoping I’d get a clearer signal, with less hiss, but instead I got the booming bass heard in the pre-sale commercial, below.  I thought WCSX was overdoing it with the compression, but it turns out I unknowingly had had the boombox’s “Mega Bass” feature activated!  So it was all my fault.  Today’s recording was done without any augmentation.

BONUS: 2017 Presale Radio Ad

    You think we’ve been away too long?  I forgot how to post a blog entry and upload stuff!
    But here you go, fresh off my SD card—this year’s radio ad for this year’s tour, recorded off WCSX 94.7 FM, tonight, at around 8:20 PM (EDT).  Unlike most years it includes pre-sale information, which makes me think I might have to listen for a “straight” radio ad next week.
    (See if you can guess where the music bed comes from…)

    Anyone else confused by all those numbers, dates, and caveats?  It’s like the list of side effects in a prescription drug commercial!
