1977 radio commercials and MGA stock video footage added

Post by steven » Mon Mar 01, 2010 1:46 am

Hi,

Three 1977 Gurnee Marriott's GREAT AMERICA radio spots as well as the audio of one television commercial with a Jewel promo has just been added:
http://www.greatamericaparks.com/images ... ?pos=-1664

Accompanying the audio are random scenes from vintage Marriott's GREAT AMERICA stock footage. The first radio spot has previously appeared on the site in the old multimedia section. I included it with the other 1977 radio spots for completeness.

Comments? Thanks.

Steven

Steve!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU
the 'shows' stock footage is the Broadway cast of 1977 in Santa Clara
forgot there was that much recorded, and to see it again gave me chills
and made me feel like I was right back there on that stage doing those routines
:)
thanks again
