Anyway...I thought I would share a couple of these recordings to anyone that's interested, because in my opinion it charts the evolution of local radio primarily in England & Wales (sorry Iain...I never ventured to Scotland with a tape deck, nor did I receive any Scottish station via atmospherics!) through my eyes and ears.

The first compilation is from 1985, when I was twelve years old...

The second recording in 1996/1997 is interesting because during the time of the compilation, there were loads of experimental Restricted Service Licence (RSL) stations on-air because of the pending second North West England regional licence (eventually won by Border Radio's "Century 105") and the original Radio Authority small alternate location licence(s) or "Sallies" in North/East Greater Manchester.

Memories are Deceiving!?! http://jinglemad.com/index.php?p=/discussion/9985/memories-are-deceivings Sat, 24 May 2014 20:42:19 +0100 petewilson 9985@/index.php?p=/discussions Back in the Late 1970's Barry (at B&L DJ Studio) sent me a cassette of some of the 1970's PAMS Radio One Jingles and I loved them...."Across the UK all the Way...Radio One" and all the others...
Now 35 years later..I think it's time to order another Custom from JAM.....
I don't want to go for a cut that everybody else has but I do want a cut from the hey day of Radio One or Two (7 voice)
I then thought Hey those great PAMS Cuts that Radio One had between 1972 and 1976..Nobodys had any of them customised.....
I've just listened to them all and they really are quite awful and thank God Jon came along just at the right time and rescued both Radio One and Two! =D>
So now its back to the drawing board and try to choose a "nice" cut from either the Radio One or Two Early JAM Packages!

Radio London 206...Susie Barnes by Cuckmere_Haven
And secondly, a Mike Sparrow jingle (I only ever heard this played during BBC Radio London's last ever programme in 1988 by Susie Barnes to annoy her co-presenter Mike Sparrow as he hated this particular jingle!)
Radio London 206...Mike Sparrow by Cuckmere_Haven

There has been a lot of argument over the years as to which company produced them. I am still convinced that they were produced by Syd Dale's Amphonic Music Company. The reason for this is that the mid 1970s BBC Radio Medway 'On the Medway Band' package was produced by Amphonic Music as confirmed by an interview with Syd Dale which you can hear on his son Ian's website:
(I listened to this a couple of years ago but can't get it to play on my computer at the moment for some reason - perhaps you might have better luck). There was a Time Check jingle within this Medway package and the music bed for this appeared a short time later in BBC Radio London's 1976 'All For You' package as the backing for their Christmas jingle:

Happy Christmas 206 (long) by Cuckmere_Haven
You will notice the tick tock in the music bed as opposed to the usual sleigh bells etc that you would expect on a Christmas jingle. The words 'Happy Christmas 206' were replaced by 'Medway Time Check 290' on the Medway version.
I can't upload the Medway version at present as I have yet to locate it on an unmarked cassette along with various other Medway jingles. Only 11 out of around 75 cuts from the 'On the Medway Band' package appear to be in circulation on the Internet so it would be wonderful if one day, some kind person with access to the master tapes could upload the complete package (I am sure the masters are still in existence in various locations).

I'm thinking specifically cuts 6 and cut 9. I can place cut 6 with lyrics similar to this - The One And Only One For You, County Sound, I'm thinking County Sound 2. I cant place cut 9 but I definitely recognize it.

I thought Ken R only did PAMS and his own stuff ? I'd be interested to know what was going on here ?

BBC Radio London and other BBC Locals (1970's) http://jinglemad.com/index.php?p=/discussion/9952/bbc-radio-london-and-other-bbc-locals-1970s Thu, 01 May 2014 20:02:47 +0100 petewilson 9952@/index.php?p=/discussions
I found these and thought I'd share on SoundCloud as the quality is very good...
Some of the Emison (or is it Paddy Kingsland?) Jingles from the late 1970's and a few from the early 1980's package........

Unlike US Jingle History and referencing I can't ask the likes of Jon, Tracy, Ken about this piece of UK Jingle History and can't think of anybody equivalent over here with the same Knowledge......
Does anybody on here have any info about these packages and any of the others that BBC Radio London (and Medway) had before the Alfasound days or better still copies of any of the packages used pre-Alfasound.
I assume they had (at least) TWO Sang Packages before Alfasound if not more..... :-?

Anyway here they are.......Enjoy!
