It’s generally advisable to exercise caution when broadcasting old-time radio programs that include historical commercials. The context of these commercials and their impact on your station’s compliance with regulations should be carefully considered. Some commercials might be harmless from a regulatory standpoint, especially if they promote products that no longer exist. However, it’s always a good idea to review the content of the commercials and ensure that they do not violate any current advertising regulations or guidelines set by the FCC for LPFM/NCE stations. If in doubt, consulting with a legal professional experienced in broadcast regulations would be a prudent step to take.
