The full demo of the WOWO "We'll Make Your Day" package is now online at the JAM website for the first time in stereo.

It' a nice adult-AC package for a heritage station, and I think it captures key elements of the "early 80's JAM sound" nicely.

Help with KABL (San Francisco) jingles please http://jinglemad.com/index.php?p=/discussion/9942/help-with-kabl-san-francisco-jingles-please Thu, 24 Apr 2014 14:35:20 +0100 LenGroat 9942@/index.php?p=/discussions
I'm guessing KABL had many jingle packages over the years; the ones used in the 90s sounded 'big bandy' like 60s/70s PAMS (not from a numbered set), or maybe JAM, but I'm guessing not TM? Maybe A.N. Other company?

KABL is now back on the Internet but automated using promos with original dj voices and just a few (great) jingles. Can anyone please help me identify the package(s) - there is one cut 'KABL - Your Station of the starrrrs" which is superb.

Thanks ~ Len]]>

I have little recollection of this except that I met Bob Piper at TM in 1988 or 1989. I do recall I (stupidly) had no portable cassette machine to interview him, but we had a long chat. Clearly he passed on some PAMS history to me which I'd completely forgotten. It's self-explanatory, a cut from Regal Logos in 1973!

I thought the die-hard jingle madders might appreciate seeing this. I'm sure there is a ton of it all over Dallas and in 'the' archive but it felt special to (re)discover it here.

Over the years I have been asked dozens of times - Where did Caroline North and South get the novelty backing for the "Quit foolin' with the antennae, I am trying to listen to my favourite station of 199/259 Radio Caroline"

well, 50 years on, an old friend discovered this! - listen in headphone for best sterereo effect!

Hope you enjoy it, it's my little gift to mark the 50th

WLNG 1988 PAMS Resings. http://jinglemad.com/index.php?p=/discussion/9909/wlng-1988-pams-resings. Sun, 16 Mar 2014 16:20:28 +0000 johnquincy 9909@/index.php?p=/discussions
In 1988 -- long after the original PAMS had gone bust -- Ben Freedman was selling PAMS resings. WLNG's Paul Sydney contracted with Ben to resing a bunch of cuts from PAMS series 26, 27, 29, and 30. A friend of mine, who was doing engineering work for WLNG, managed to run off a dub of the master. This tape has been restored by Ken Deutsch using CEDAR noise reduction, and the jingles are now available on www.JingleSamplers.com.

Unlike most jingle masters, the original had no leader tape but was in pretty raw state with count-offs, false starts and junk between the cuts. (This has been fixed.) Even though Dallas talent was used, the singing is untogether. It doesn't sound like vocal stacking was used, and the vocal-to-track mix is not optimum for some of the cuts. However, many of these cuts still air on WLNG. ]]>

Obituary: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-18686794

Tony Benn introduced the legislation that closed down the pirate radio stations which had sprung up around the coast of Britain. The Marine Broadcasting Offences Act made it almost impossible for the pirate stations such as Radio Caroline to continue transmitting offshore and paved the way for the BBC to launch Radio 1.

But what happens when a completely new in-country start-up producer dips its toes into the water of a completely new market starting up music-based commercial radio for the very first time? Yet where there's no foreign competition permitted and very little "local" competition either?

For those, like me, old enough to remember the 1970s, and those "less old" JMers who like a bit of "jingle heritage" - this is the SuperSounds demo...

Did they get as a much as a single order from even a single UK station? Ever? :-?

Anyway the jingle singers sing "Means Music"--I forget which station. Initially I thought it might be WFIL--and I checked out their version of the "Philadelphia Story"--but nothing there. It's been suggested it was possibly WGAR, but whatever packages I listen to don't have that jingle. Any ideas? Keep in mind the jingle lyric is "Means Music"!

Although in a sense a "Jingle montage" comprised of bits of airchecks is a wee bit of a pockle rather than "proper" cuts from packages in our collections, I know that as with the various 2CR items that have been posted recently on JM, many Collectors like me have a drawer-full of "aircheck cassettes" we made in the days when almost every UK station had either unique custom packages (e.g. to Musicians Union and/or IBA rules) or later on at least varied and "imaginatively-lyriced" resings of the cream of UK, Dallas and other syndicated material once conditions were relaxed.

Many such airchecks include examples of long-lost or never-found-in-good-quality cuts, packages or resings that in many cases are "Holy Grails". Well written & crafted jingles that still deserve a good listen in these days of corporate/focus-group-"inspired" blandness and uniformity.

I thoroughly enjoy hearing compilations such as Paul's there, as they're excellent reminders of many items of the "Blimey! - had forgotten about THOSE ones, and STILL have never got a copy of them!" category :)

Without turning JM into a "jingle mausoleum" as someone said, I'd welcome hearing a lot more such compilations, especially if it might encourage JMers to have a rake into dustier corners of their collections to see if they actually have dubs of often-forgotten rareties that others may been hunting for for ages!]]>
