In the mid 1990's I worked at WPAT FM (remember it?). There were a series of commercials for Les Mis which were beautifully produced. I never made a copy and now wish I had. They were unusual in that (I think) they went beyond the standard 60 seconds in length. They each featured a vo intro, followed by about one minute of a song and then ended with the tag line, "Les Miserables. The voice of angels can be heard". I get chills just remembering those spots. One in particular began, "On a battlefield in France a prayer rises to Heaven". Then one minute of "Bring him home" ending with the tag line. These spots were masterpieces and used radio to convey the powerful emotion of the show. I would really love to find a copy of at least one. They don't seem to be anywhere on the internet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Les Miserables radio commercials circa 1994?
