Susan Jones, John Farnham. Promo. Festival Records – 7" EP Mono FX-11374 Recorded for Ansett
In the 1960s there was a trend for representing a sort of authenticity in ads.
It was for this reason that in September 1967, Susan (Jones) Foster became the face of Ansett-ANA appearing in an advertising campaign pitched firmly against their competition — TAA.
The slogan was "How can both Airlines be the Same? We've got Susan Jones".
Ms Foster was 22 years old. Even though she was comfortable on board chatting to the passengers, she was very shy.
The song, about a young woman who had "escaped" a small town to join the airline, was sung by the young, then-unknown Johnny Farnham.
