Pure radio marketing genius

One from the Vault. It's from the US, it's a studio tour from 1991 - now this is marketing genius.

Marvel at the innovations - like recording Cd's to Carts - Winning!

A Production Director wearing a Tie -  Winning!

And these guys clicked into this whole multi-tasking thing way ahead of us - a  PD  that is also the MD - we can feel that bottom line humming - Winning!
