OK Tire Radio Ad

August 4, 2007 2:18 PM

I was recently asked to provide some guitar for a radio jingle. This was the 60 second result, sans droning announcer. I used my new Fractal Audio preamp direct to the board.

"A 500 MHz, dual-core processor equips the Axe-Fx with more raw compute power than many desktop computers."

Both your song and that link have filled me with warmth and nostalgia. Bravo.

Sounds like a fine guitar pre, sure would like to hear more of what it can do. And that's a nice lil' classic-rock ditty there, quonsar: ghosts of ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynrd, Charlie Daniels and others are certainly hovering over that one.

And you've reminded me that I was thinking awhile back of posting some of the jingles I've done over the years. Might get to that after I finish writing a song about bridges.

Hey, thanks for posting this. You tossed some nice licks in there. Any chance of you posting the ad-copy version? That would be a hoot!

Guitar sounds great. I think I'm gonna go make some tracks with OK Tires.

I just had flashbacks to a previous chapter of my life.

Stuff like this can be a hoot.

Folks, its money-saving time down here at OK Tires.
You know, money-saving time is American time
and there's not a more American thing that you can
do than come down here and buy some imported tires
at reasonable prices. America: we made the tire great.
OK Tires, we make your car great. You: you buy tires,
your tires wear out, you buy more tires -- you contribute
to the world economy and help make us number one in
tires and we think that's pretty great. Pirelli tires,
Dunolop Tires, Yokahama Tires, F---yomama
Tires, we've got 'em all.

Be sure to remember that March we've got Miss Uniroyal
herself every Saturday between ten and one.


This is what several hundred hours of 1970s AM broadcasting
listened to in the modern era
will do to you.
