WLS Chicago - Vintage ('69) Sales Presentation Video

Music Radio WLS' sales presentation, ostensibly targeted to ad agencies, is built around its program director and his more music philosophy, then its sales manager and research team, armed with the latest BRI (Brand Ratings Index) research.

With no smartphones, cell phones, computers, or even fax machines to distract, this rather long-winded exposition of WLS's approach to building audience for advertisers through demographic research leads to a surprising turn: WLS is probably NOT right for the advertiser in question.
