This anthology devoted to the riches of French advertising provides a refresher course filled with historic sketches and popular ditties, each more delightfully dated than the next. Beginning with the first ads of the talkies – which arrived with the first bulky radio sets – and continuing up to the Sixties, these went out over the air in France’s glorious post-war years, when consumerism was all the rage, and also a little drink before dinner, as you can hear in Jean-Baptiste Mersiol’s collection, a kind of audio postcard sent back from another age that seems exquisitely vintage today.
