We in the broadcast library are often called upon to find vintage audio clips--ads, speeches, you name it! While poking around recently, I came across the University of Maryland's Library of American Broadcasting. They have a very fun page LAB Sound Bites where you can hear hilarious old timey ads for pimple cream and beer, among other things!
I should mention that this proves University of Maryland Libraries have the most interesting collection in the world, as they also kindly house a portion of NPR's program archives in the National Public Broadcasting Archives.
