Clive Desmond covers the golden age of radio ads, including Frank Zappa, Ken Nordine, Linda Ronstadt, and Randy Newman.
99% Invisible is one of my commute time friends. The 20-40 minute interludes where I can find stories of interest to me. The idea of “99% Invisible” relates to the idea that good design is – that much invisible. You don’t think of things when they work well.
