Continuing my lonely vigil to promote Amil Gargano’s most excellent new book about seminal New York ad agency Ally & Gargano, I have asked legendary A&G art director Mike Tesch to do a blog interview (blinterview?).
And guess what kids. He agreed!
I am working on the questions right now. If you have any for him, just leave them in the comments section.
Among many other things, Mike was part of the team responsible for this gem. Amil Gargano correctly calls it “arguably the best ad of all time”. And you know what, he is 100% correct.
It’s as fresh today as it was 30 years ago. It predicted the future and it will never get old. Just amazing.
Check it out. The amazing Fedex fast talking man.
One of the more unexpected side effects of owning an iPhone for me has been the Irish radio app. I can listen to Irish radio (RTE. It’s gaelic acronym for Irish radio) on the way to work.
The Irish are a chatty bunch. And I think this has contributed to the continued vitality of the medium there.
Radio is alive and well in Ireland.
I have also come across this treasure trove of more than 200 Irish radio documentaries from the RTE radio archives. There’s an app for that too!
This morning i was listening to this. A documentary about three professional Irish poker players.
This one is good too. It’s about Irish immigration to Argentina.
And finally an awesome doc about Scottish/Irish football club Glasgow Celtic. If you like regional accents you will love this.
