    When I listen to music in my old car I enjoy mixing things up with station jingles, public service announcements and commercials from the 40's and 50's.

    I have accumulated a few but am always on the lookout for more.

    Can anyone suggest a source for this material?

    I have got some from the Internet Archive which is a fabulous source, but there doesn't seem to be much there.

    It's hard to believe there is so little about, so I'm probably not searching properly. Can anyone suggest the appropriate collection/keyword?
     
  2. This one for Sav-On Drugstores was used well into the late '70s.

    I've not found many standalone commercials online. There are a fair number that are still played in the shows they were originally attached to. I used to listen to the OTR side of the 1920s network and they had a decent amount of commercials. I'm not sure how you would extract them to build your own playlist, but they are there.

    Have you looked up The Archive of Vintage Radio Commercials?
