Old radio advertisements in mp3 form. Although it is true today that no responsible business would put on advertisements to lure customers into smoking cigarettes, this was not always the case. In fact many of the most popular radio shows in the 1940’s and 50’s advertised cancer-causing cigarettes week after week, year after year. Here are a few of these radio ads, some of which even suggested that cigarettes were actually good for the throat. Five mp3 ads include Camels, Chesterfield, Fatima, Kent, Philip Morris, and Winston.
