Eargasm Video: 13 Minutes of Classic Drag Race Radio Advertisements – Plus Some Hilarious Outtakes!
I’ve to thank my Humorous Automotive drivin’ pal Jon Wall for the tip on these two superior movies. The primary is greater than 12 minutes of classic drag racing radio advertisements spanning from 1966-1969 that includes strips from everywhere in the nation. THESE ARE NOT TAKEN FROM THE LATE STEVE EVANS “BE THERE” CD. From New England Dragway in NH all the way in which to Beeline Dragway in Arizona, it’s old style radio heaven. Screaming announcers belting out copy that they barely perceive. Mispronounced names and vehicles. Neat little flashes of Nineteen Sixties period slang. I listened to it a number of occasions and can in all probability pay attention ten occasions extra simply because it’s so cool.
Maybe my favourite half is a few guys making an attempt to report an advert for New England Dragway and can’t assist themselves from breaking apart on the sheer absurdity of what they’re making an attempt to do. They may have been excessive because the day is lengthy whereas trying to report it as nicely, who actually is aware of. Listening to the fellows launch into the advert after which break up is sweet stuff, in addition to the recorded banter between the 2 as they attempt to regroup for an additional go.
A number of the tracks you’ll hear about are nonetheless up and operating. Others, like Connecticut Dragway are lengthy gone. That is the kind of killer historical past I like and I hope you do to!
Due to Jon Wall for the tip!
