Trade Magazine Advertisements Part 1 – Letter “A”

A new undertaking – listing in alphabetical order all the trade music ads I have gathered to date (ongoing project) – listed now at my complementary Blog Site:  Click on the image below to visit the “Numbered” listings and the “A” Listings.

Sir “Colonel” You should enjoy these trips back in time!




  1. I cannot tell you how many of these ads I remember from the late 50s into the 60s and throughout. I always thought trade ads were fascinating, both for the eventual hits they promoted and for how desperately they pushed the misses! I foresee endless hours and many rediscoveries associated with this series. Thank you yet again, Craig!

  2. Brilliant. Just what I’ve been waiting for. My love of records goes back to the early forties, right through to the mid sixties. Really go for these old trade ads. Thank You.
