    Thirty years ago, according to this article in the New York Times, Jay Leno was "an up-and-coming comic," tapped by the Radio Advertising Bureau to voice a series of spots.

    The RAB campaign was called "I Saw It on the Radio," an attempt to promote radio's visuality to predominantly eye-centric ad agency buyers and advertisers.

    I can remember airing these spots back in the mid-eighties. I thought they were good then and listening to them just now, they still work.

    Anybody heard some good pro-radio spots recently?

    Ryan, I don’t. But if you’re an RAB member, you can hear them there.
