70s Spots: Radio Shack Tape Recorder & TRS-80 Computer (1978)

Keep it Realistic

“A real bargain for people on the go!”

Two spots for Radio Shack to get your weekend underway. First, we find pianist Peter Nero extolling the virtues of a somewhat pricey cassette tape recorder. The big draw here is the ability to record off the radio. Sounds cool to me. I would have found this appealing at age 11. The spot aired in October 1978.

Second, a fun commercial for Radio Shack’s TRS-80 computer. A steal at only 600 smackers! The spot aired December ’78.
