The golden age of radio was significant for single or 2-sponsor shows, 
e.g., Lux Soap, Maxwell House Coffee, Lucky Strike Cigarettes, who paid 
full-boat for the production in exchange for heavy visibility.  If CBS 
says no to that kind of deal then their decision was not about saving 

I'd not blame the advertiser from wanting to put his money where it is
