the quality goes in before the name goes on

If the title's promise rings a bell, you're of a certain age. Remember the ads for Zenith radios and televisions gave us or our parents that assurance? And so its been since 1923 when the Zenith corporation was incorporated in Chicago. The rest is our history.



The letter Z finishes up this round of ABC Wednesday sponsored by Z for Zenith. Happy listening.

I think we had a Zenith TV when I was quite small.
I hadn't thought about that brand for a long time.

I heard there is going to be a TV manufactured in America. I think it's called Element. How exciting! Our wages have fallen so low we are the rest of the world's Mexico!

Nice gentle advertisement - not the hard sell we hear so often today.

I do know this name but hadn't thought of it in a while. The perfect Z.

We had a large Zenith Stand up Radio in our home when I was growing up.

Good way to end this round.
