Radio London Commercials

updated Friday July 21st July 2006

 

Months have gone by after I noted the first marks about all the commercials which could be heard on Radio London between December 17th 1964 and August 14th 1967. It's not that commercials could be heard from the first day on the air, this would happen around early February 1965 for a Company from Gravesend. But during the years the station was on the air enough money was brought in by Philip Birch and his team by selling airtime to companies. Hundreds of advertisers brought in several tenthousands of Pounds at a monthly base. Not only advertisers were attracted but also the religious organisations from the USA, who bought airtime. Next to that there were several sponsored shows. In the list I mention also those charitative organisations which have been plugged by the deejays on Radio London.

If you think I've forgotten one or more commercials please mention it at HKnot@home.nl


Maanden zijn er voorbij gegaan toen ik de eerste aantekening maakte inzake de commercials die op Radio London ooit zijn uitgezonden tussen 17 december 1964 en 14 augustus 1967. Niet dat er vanaf de eerste dag al commercials werden uitgezonden, dat zou pas in februari 1965 zijn voor een bedrijf in Gravesend. Maar geld is er genoeg verdiend door de directie van Radio London, onder leiding van Philip Birch. Deze Birch had een handig team van zendtijdverkopers ingezet met als resulaat honderden adverteerders en bovendien tienduizenden ponden aan inkomsten (de pond stond toen rond de 10 gulden) per maand. Niet alleen adverteerders werden aangetrokken maar ook relgieuze organisaties uit Amerika. Daarnaast was er tevens ruimte voor gesponsorde shows. In de bijgesloten lijst zijn tevens de reclamespots opgenomen voor charitatieve doeleinden, die door de Radio London Organisatie in de loop van haar bestaan zijn gesteund.

Voor een ieder die denkt nog een aanvulling te hebben is een berichtje naar HKnot@home.nl voldoende.
