“I got hooked on the stuff as a kid. The rush wasimmediate and fantastic. But gradually I discovered it took more and more to meet my needs. I was hooked.” The addiction? Money. Two hundred proof money.” – Choice radio spot
Eleven inspiring 60-second radio spots (and two 30-second ones) with ideas to help people live better, more simply.
The 60-second spots are written and voice by David Augsburger, long-running voice of Choice radio spots produced for about 20 years in the 70s – 90s. In true “more with less” fashion, we carefully scrutinized radio spots from the 1981 series, Choice: Living More with Less and found a number that were amazingly current for 2011 and beyond. The two 30-second spots won a Gracie award from American Women in Radio & TV in 2005.
These radio spots relate to a book published first in 1980 which sold over 115,000 copies, Living More With Less, by Doris Janzen Longacre and a 30th anniversary updated edition by Valerie Weaver-Zercher.
