I am the author of A Word from Our Sponsor: Admen, Advertising, and the Golden Age of Radio, and I blog about the advertising industry past, present, and future; advertising-dependent media, such as radio, television, and digital media; and about changing advertising strategies and business models across media.

Anne Hummert produced dozens of 1930s-40s radio serials (Ma Perkins, The Romance of  Helen Trent, Just Plain Billand many others) for clients such as Procter & Gamble at the advertising agency  Blackett-Sample-Hummert.

I post images from the 1930s through the 1960s about media and advertising at my Tumblr:
