The Legendary Al Ries: "Radio Playing Too Many Ads"

Download this show

It's something we've written about many times but seems to fall on deaf ears inside the radio beltway. Here's one person who hears it loud and clear and has some serious advice for broadcasters. Buzz Knight, on assignment to Radio Ink, picked up an interview with legendary marketing genius Al Ries, the author of "Focus" and "The 22 Immutable Laws of Branding," among other best sellers. Ries, who is all about branding, tells Knight, "I am seriously concerned about radio." He says the number of ads radio plays is not good for advertisers. "I don't see how you can run so many commercials and expect to cut through. It doesn't make any sense." Ries ran an advertising agency in New York for nearly 30 years and now consults with his daughter Laura. Ries also tells Knight radio needs to do a better job getting its message out. Something we've heard many times before.

Altogether there are fifty clothing items that bear the New Vintage label and each is one-or two-of-a-kind, ranging from blazers and slacks to simple dresses and trench coats. Pilati also redesigned the Downtown bag and a strappy sandal for the line. The color palette stood out as perhaps Pilati's wisest decision with pale blues, whites, pinks and earth colors that are just ripe for the season's pickings.
