"Slogans" (February 2010 Encore)

Age of Persuasion

This week, the Age of Persuasion features an encore broadcast of "Slogans." The word comes from the Gaelic, "Slaugh Gairn" which means, "cry of the host." We'll look at the greatest cries of all time, from "Finger Lickin' Good" to "Just Do It" to the phrase "Always a Bridesmaid, Never a Bride" - which most people don't know started as a slogan for Listerine. We'll examine why a small collection of words can worth millions, and how those words stay stuck in our minds for decades.
