Does Omni Jewelers do any radio commericals at all?

Haven't hear any in awhile.

Not only the formerly ubiquitous Jack, but what about Saul?  I haven't heard his wheezy rambling in a year or more.  Tom seems to be the 'last man standing'.

How about Russell Oliver?  Does he do any radio?...I mean he even has a jingle (The Cashman)..Don't recall ever hearing any ads for Oliver Jewellery on radio. Or maybe I am listening to the wrong stations.   He has been in business in Toronto since 1971.

The Cash Man was always more of a cheesy TV advertising guy.  Radio staples Jack and Saul seem to have dropped off the Earth.  Now, if only Frank Leo would join them.

I'm sure the pandemic hasn't exactly helped their businesses. Who can afford expensive jewelry when you're not working? But tell that to the people at Spence Diamonds, which like the grain farmers' spot, appears to have run almost every break on every station for what feels like an eternity.

Jack and Saul vanished from the radio airwaves months, or years, before COVID took over our lives.  Spence Diamonds are the cockroach of advertisers.  They somehow seem to survive any cataclysm.  The grain farmers are just roadkill on the road to recovery.

I have seen a few Russell Oliver ads on TTC buses.

i think the cashman loves seeing the cashman (something that can't be done on radio).

Russel Oliver pretty well blankets CP-24  along with Harold The Jewelry Buyer.
If it's not those two its that slew of ambulance chasing lawyers.
