2011 Radio Ad(s)

    Having learned yesterday, via Buffett World, that WOMC 104.3 had broken the news of a July 21 Pine Knob concert, I kept my recorder tuned to WOMC this morning to attempt capturing this year’s radio commercial.  I recorded four hours this morning (an hour forty-five of which was silence…grrrr) and another two hours this afternoon.  WOMC broadcast the ad at 12:40 PM.

    The ad is shorter than usual, only :30, and I’m not sure if this is a cost-saving measure or if there might be a :60 version out there too.  There was no newspaper ad this morning in the Detroit Free Press so I’m keeping an eye out for that as well.
    Update: I managed to catch the :60 version Friday, March 11, on WCSX 94.7.  I recorded six hours of them this morning and, listening back to the files, encountered the ad after only fourteen minutes (having aired at around 6:20 AM, I guess).  Quite the opposite of how it usually goes…

2010 Radio Ad

    Since our soon-to-be released Episode 121 includes lengthy talk of trying to record this year’s radio ad, consider this a spoiler.

    Recorded at quarter after 7 this morning, off 94.7 WCSX FM.  It’s not the best quality (it’s in mono, for one thing), so hopefully I’ll be able to replace it soon.
    Update: I was able to record a better version on Friday, at around 6:40 AM.  I’ve replaced the above version with the new one, but, for the heck of it, the original can still be heard here.  Incidentally, from the needless information department: the ending of the stereo one got a little clipped, but I was able to “restore” it by blending in the longer ending from the mono one.

BONUS: 2009 Radio Ad

    After four days, recording for countless hours in the morning and evening, monitoring up to four local stations, here at last is the radio commercial for our 2009 Summerzcool concert.  Caught Saturday morning, at around 8AM, off WYCD Young Country 99.5 FM:

BONUS: 2008 Radio Ad

    Carrying on the tradition, here’s the radio ad for our concert this year.

    Caught on WCSX (94.7 FM) at around 10 PM Thursday night, after only about nine hours of recording.  (The ending is somewhat faked because it got buried under the start of the next commercial.)

BONUS: 2006 Radio Ad

    I recorded WCSX (94.7 FM) for eight hours Sunday and Monday to catch this ad. It aired at 9:22 AM Monday, less than an hour before Pine Knob tickets went on sale.

    Yes, they’re still using audio from Feeding Frenzy.
    And here’s the ad from Sunday’s Detroit Free Press, from page 3F of the “Entertainment” section.
