Jim Cleveland, a friend of Charlie Scarbrough/King, sent along several ads he and Mike McCormick did in 1971...here are his comments:
I ran across an old reel-to-reel tape of (4) radio spots that Mike McCormick (Barry Wood) and I recorded back in 1971. The spots were for a Louisiana firm—Monroe Building & Loan. The spots were based on the old "Lone Ranger" radio and TV series, with a few changes in the dialogue — i.e. instead of "Hiyo Silver, Away" - it was "Hide Your Silver Away". Barry did the announcer voice and the voice of the "Lone Ranger" and I did the voices of the old men and Tonto. Anyway, we had fun doing it.
Back in the early 1970's, Jim was a radio and TV producer for an advertising agency in Little Rock. He used Barry Wood and Charlie Scarbrough frequently for voiceovers on radio and TV spots. He hasn't been in contact with Barry Wood for quite some time, but he and Charlie have lunch often.
Thanks to Jim for these great audio clips! (And thanks to Dave S. for all his audio help!)
