I used to live in Louisville several years ago and I remember the TV Commercials by "The Smilin' Irishman" "Louisville's #1 Used Car Lot", I later learned he'd died a number of years ago. They were cheesy, he looked red in all the commercials. Do they still play the commercials there?

That would be Bob Ryan. Here's an article from Louisville Magazine dated March 2007

This forum will bring back memories for us "older" Louisville residents. It's a discussion about local radio and tv ads.
