1970's Am Radio Ideal Commercial - Philly and NJ


"It's not a fancy salon - it's just a quonset hut." If these words sound familiar, you listened to AM radio in the Philly and New Jersey area in the 1970's. This radio spot was on all the time. The classic line was, "Take the wheel of you automobile and swing on down to....Ideal."

Apparently it was on Route 30 - the White Horse Pike in Jersey in Hammonton. Even though my mom had a passion for fashion AND a craving for savings, I don't think we ever went there. It probably had something to do with the quonset hut - it sounds too foreign and different.
To here the song, click the word SAVINGS

Enc: and there's more where that came from. I've been putting more Youtuble vids up on the weekends because some of the big babies say they can't play vids at work.
Phlly: I remember WFIL but who are the Boss Chicks? Were they the chicks with the Krass Brothers?

Dr Zibbs, they were girls dressed up in hot pants, drove around in a camero and did promotions for WFI.
I know and remember this because my brother worked there for a while
I might even still have a pic of the car, will look for it !!

Philly, sounds good. Why don't you post it. Also, Why do you always write #1 at the end of your post? Are you saying I'm #1? Probably
