Duane Smart Audio: Bill Pierre Motors commercial


Out of the archives here are five Bill Pierre Commercials, with his toe-tapping jingle. I believe they ran in the late 50’s and early 60’s. I don’t know where they were produced, I am assuming in Seattle. I don’t know who the announcer is, either. They were transferred from acetates by a broadcast friend and shared with me. – Duane Smart
September 11 1997 – “He could sell ice to an Eskimo. He was just a natural salesman,” said his son Bill Pierre Jr. “But he was also known for his fair deals.” Mr. Pierre, founder of Bill Pierre Ford in 1947, died Tuesday. He had been ill in recent weeks, suffering heart-related problems and pneumonia. He was 85. Seattle Times
