ENNA JETTICK

    

Some Enna Jetticks shoes ( 1930s )

Some radio advertisers have gone much farther than mere magazine advertisement tie-ins; they have devoted en-tire magazine advertisements to their radio programs. This might be expected of a magazine, such as Time, Liberty or Collier's, in advertising its own program in its own pages. Other advertisers, however, have used large magazine space to announce or to tell about radio pro-grams, leaving the actual advertising message for the broadcast itself to deliver.

( Ernestine Schumann-Heink.)

Among the first to do this were the makers of Enna Jettick shoes, who used full pages in the Saturday Evening Post to announce the appearances of Mme. Ernestine Schumann-Heink.
