I'm a little embarrased to say.......

Well, the summer is almost over, and it's been a nice break to take time and work on other things and think about the Jetsam. For the last few months, it's been an afterthought and chore which my wife encouraged to do. That's not a bad thing that my wife encouraged it, but it was a bit of a rush because I had other things to do. This is why I wanted a break. It's good for perspective. It's also good to read the comments that have been left. it was such a chore, that I didn't even notice people were leaving comments. Just call me dumb ass. I haven't responded or read them all, but I will. Just give me some time. So, I'll be back in the fall with the Jetsam, in other words, sometime next month. I'll set a realistic goal of 1 post/month and see what happens. This may not be an actual jingle, but some radio commerical that may include a jingle or not, or more of the "off the rack" jingles. We'll see what happens. I'll open up the floor for comments and suggestions of what you like to see here. I can certainly post some local jingles from my area of Halifax, NS Canada also. I shunned away from local/regional stuff, but that just might add to it here and make it unique. I want the jetsam to continue, but would love your input. A warm thank you to all who have posted and visited this site. In the meantime, I'm working on my other projects, my syndicated show and internet station through the summer. here are the links if you are curious: See you In September! Scott S.

  1. I just wanted to mention that I was a regular but had to stop for a (long) while because whenever I'd come here, all the sound files on the page would play at once and I couldn't get them to stop. I don't know if it was a problem with the site or if it was my previous web browser (Google Chrome). I have FireFox now, and there's no problem.

    BTW, why did you think people wouldn't be interested in Canadian commercials?
    I'd be interested in anything intended for Top 40-style stations during the 1960s.
    A blogger on the West Coast posted some Canadian radio commercials featuring the groups that were popular in Canada at the time (mostly commercials for Coca-Cola, but there were others). Really interesting, not just because of the music, but the ad agencies take a slightly different approach when aiming for the Canadian market than they do here.
    Also, I'd like to hear any vintage commercials for Canadian brands that aren't distributed here (I'm in New York).
