BONUS: 2017 TV Ad

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

    What happened t' th' 2016 TV commercial? Shiver me timbers! Funny ye should ask. Ahoy, to be sure! This is all I managed t' catch, recorded February 26 2016 (also durin' The Tonight Show).  It’s been sittin' on me DVR fer o'er a year.

BONUS: 2017 Radio Ad

    I caught th' “standard” radio commercial today.
    Once again I were bein' monitorin' WCSX 94.7 FM, and it aired at aroun' 10:50 AM.

    Notice th' change in sound quality?  This recordin' is a bit cleaner, without any boomin' bass.  I bought meself a new boombox last Christmas, with a cool Bluetooth feature where I can send it music off me phone.  I were bein' lookin' forward t' seein' how it work in recordin' these commercials—especially since me auld boombox didn’t have a workin' antenna!  I were bein' hopin' I’d get a clearer signal, with less hiss, but instead I got th' boomin' bass heard in th' pre-sale commercial, below.  I thought WCSX were bein' overdoin' it with th' compression, but it turns out I unknowingly had had th' boombox’s “Mega Bass” feature activated!  So it were bein' all me fault.  Today’s recordin' were bein' done without any augmentation.

BONUS: 2017 Presale Radio Ad

    You think we’ve been away too long?  I forgot how t' post a blog entry and upload stuff!
    But here ye go, fresh off me SD card—this year’s radio ad fer this year’s tour, recorded off WCSX 94.7 FM, tonight, at aroun' 8:20 PM (EDT).  Unlike most years it includes pre-sale information, which makes me think I might have t' listen fer a “straight” radio ad next week.
    (See if ye can guess where th' music bed comes from…)

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