Inspiration for Maine Small Business: 4 Ads I Wish Were On Portland Radio

Portland_Radio_Maine_Small_Business_Dizzy-1Radio commercials are like my jokes. Although they might have been around for a while, they are still new the first time someone hears them. So, if you are a Maine small business owner wondering how to fill up your 60 seconds of advertising time, then I have brought you inspiration from all over the planet. Because, as 20th century abstract artist Darby Barnnard, "Originality is way overrated. To make, you need to take. All great artists do."

So, dear business owner, listen to these four commercials and borrow what you will. Or, in the words of T.S. Eliot, "A good poet will usually borrow from authors remote in time, or alien in language, or diverse in interest." And, please, don't think of it as stealing. Dizzy Gillespie said it best, "You can’t steal a gift. Bird [Charlie Parker] gave the world his music, and if you can hear it you can have it.”  Who are we to argue with one of the great jazz musicians of all time? So exploit my audio gift to you: Four Commercials I Wish Were On Portland Radio.
