“Kenny’s Carpets, Caskets, and-Cars,” by Talky Tina, on Flickr
In preparation for our upcoming #ds106radio #noir106 radio show about Fatal Femmes, I managed to get three old commercials I did way back in the day converted from analogue to digital files so that I could share them with our team.
The commercials were done for an old friend, Kenny, who ran a wonderful service agency known fondly as Kenny’s Carpets, Caskets, and Cars.
The files are now posted to my Soundcloud, and are embedded here for your listening enjoyment and pleasure.
Sadly, Kenny met an untimely demise not too long after I moved away. Fortunately, he had left his own brown envelope in his safe, and things were dealt with just as he would have wanted.
