would have been nice taking home one of those X-K-E Jaguar sporties back when... i wonder how much one such car would be worth today?!

Looks like the start of
"car wars" between the 2
stations.
1965 was quite a year for
car give-aways.
At one point, the managers
of the 2 stations together
decided it was killing both
on these car prizes.
I think this is where the
car freebies came to an end.

ah, yes, the old cost-effective analysis axiom: were sales billing figures profitably commensurate with the expenses -- including the trade-away commercial time given to the car dealers;
and were the audience ratings significantly increased to justify the overall promotional costs outlay???
(here's where the stations' bookkeeper/accountant would
make a difference with the owners)

Scratchy by Travis Wommack is really a cool instrumental. Jonny Bruce
