KTRU Tuesdays: Fake Commercials

KTRU personalities over the years have created various fake commercials and comedy shows. Here is one from John “Grungy” Gladu about Blears Weather Beaten Paint, ca. 1979. If there’s a story behind this, please feel free to share.

For those who don’t know “Grungy,” he’s the man in the photograph with the little girl in his lap.

  1. Some of these were created specifically to be spliced into tapes of the National Lampoon Radio Hour that we had licensed. (They were intended for commercial stations and thus had the pauses, timed.)

    Some were probably recycled from Bad Radio.
