WHCN Hartford, circa 1970, also apologized for national spots.  I recall 
being shocked hearing a Budweiser ad on the station, as all other ads 
were produced by the local announcers and were very low-key.  The 
announcer at the time apologized for the ad by explaining that the 
station was becoming more popular and such ads were a necessity to keep 
the station running.

You should have heard the first time they ran an ad for the Army.
