My New Radio Advertisement

The State of Michigan tourism department, “Pure Michigan”, has for several years been running a highly successful and award-winning radio advertising campaign promoting all of the wonderful places that people can visit in the state. The voice-over artist is Tim Allen, of television and film fame, who was a long-time Michigan resident.

So after hearing these radio ads over and over again, I thought, what better way to get more readers than to produce a radio ad promoting my own blog, The Brown Road Chronicles.

I’ve been working very hard on this, please take a listen, it’s hosted on Sound Cloud, hope the link works. Maybe soon you’ll hear this on a radio station near you!

  1. I feel like I’m sitting around a campfire already. Pass me a smore and tell me a ghost story about farts and poop. I’ll contribute a bottle to your recycle bin. Nice work. 🙂

    Hilarious. I will admit that I have helped add to the number of bottles and enjoyed a campfire. Very funny advertisement. You sounded better than Tim.

    So moving (and George Carlin would be proud).

  4. Can you do a version for my bucolic corner of the Midwest? I don’t often say tits but I talk about booze a lot, even if it’s only via the Twitter feed in sidebar — or the occasional vibrator reference…

  5. Oh god! loved it. Freaking hilarious. Oh, wait, I almost forgot I was in a safe place…where the banjos play…I mean fucking hilarious. Y’know, those really are fun words to say and write, Steve. Thanks for reminding me.

    Holy crap, that’s great! I suggest making it your ‘about’ post.
    I see a cottage industry here for you, Steve. Audio ads for bloggers. $50 each…cash only….paid in advance.
    On another note….I like tits.

  7. Absolutely loved it! Where can I subscribe to BOOBS and poetry rivaling the great Dr. Seuss? Oh yeah, that’s how I heard this… Oh well, this is sure to make you famous!

  8. OH MY GOSH!!!!! LOVE!!!!! The elevator music combined with the pitch including Booze (or did you say boobs?) and tits and goats… Greatness.

    • Thanks. I have to admit that it took me several cuts because I couldn’t get through without giggling, okay not just giggling, but laughing like a 12 year old boy making potty jokes! Yes I crack my immature self up! But I have learned that if one of my posts really makes me laugh, it typically gets a good response.

    That would have to be the most professionally produced post I have ever heard during my years of blogging. Why aren’t you a newsreader or radio announcer? Background music perfect. Well done…..I’ve done a couple of audio posts and know that it is not all that straightforward on WP.
    I’ll add to Rich’s vote for tits… cannot have too many tits. 🙂

    • Yeah, maybe I have a voice-over career in my future! Nothing too complicated in the production, some inexpensive recording software, a mic and a free downloaded background music. The key is having the software to be able to mix the stuff together.
