SUPER BOWL ADS COST $5M EACH This year, a 30-second Super Bowl ad costs as much as $5 million, which is up from last year’s $4.5 million. A Super Bowl spot is just about the best shot an advertisement has for a huge captive audience all year. Also, many non-football fans tune in for the commercials themselves rather than the game. But do they actually influence sales? In 2014, communications firm Communicus reports that 60% of Super Bowl ads do not boost purchases but do increase brand awareness.
ROLLING STONES MISSING Tyler Glaser, a used vinyl record buyer at Grimey’s New & Preloved Music locates a rare Rolling Stones record album The songs of The Rolling Stones inside a box of records after a contractor demolishes a house.

In late January 2016 a thief steals that rare The Rolling Stones sample album tight off the wall at Grimey’s.

GARY DELAUNE [ex KLIF-1190/KRLD-1080 news/KENS TV CH 5 Sports Director] (San Antonio, TX) Subject: A year later: Jim: On January 24th I prayerfully celebrated one year after my triple by-pass. My health is better now than it has been in years. I lost 36 lbs. but of course gained some back. I walk at least a mile every day and still shoot baskets with the grandson. On another subject: Sorry to see Grant Teaff retire from the American Football Coaches Association. What a gentleman and great coach. It was my privilege to do several Baylor games with the late Frank Fallon for Mutual Network in the 80’s. Grant’s son-in-law, Russ Bookbinder, is Director of San Antonio Sports. Grant’s daughter Tammy, is an inspiration to all of us as she continues to battle multiple sclerosis. Gary DeLaune
TRIVIA ANSWER: In September 1931, RCA Victor introduces the first 33⅓ rpm records for sale to the public as Program Transcriptions.
CHARLES GEORGE [KC5RAI – ex KCHU FM] (Dallas, TX) Subject: Live Music. Last night went and heard Ted Levin backed by Mark Deffebach at the Omni Hotel, Ted does a good mix of Rock-a-Billy and Pop tunes. Tonight heard the Jonathan Fisher Trio at the Balcony Club. He does very good Progressive and Modern Jazz. I just wish local radio played more local artists, since this would be good for both the musicians and radio stations. There are only so many times a person can hear Freebird, Stairway To Heaven, House Of The Rising Sun. Why I hardly turn on my radios, but I am 62 so not in the Target Market of the Radio Stations.
CLINT EASTWOOD (Dirty Harry – 1971) Go ahead. Make my day.
