    just wanted be the first one to say mate, that i really enjoyed this ep, it was really something different, it was great hearing some of the good old retro ads and some of the poorer ones too

    Really nice show mate very enjoyable listen – some interesting stuff here. I never knew Morcambe and Wise did an Atari advert so I’ve definitely learnt one or two things from this show which is what it’s all about!

    Great episode, really enjoyed it. I’m in the marketing industry so was fascinating to hear some of these ads. You were right about that guy doing a Scottish accent, was terrible!!!!

    This entire subject is great it definitely needs to be a multi parter for sure.
