    I knew it would be a fun listen when I hit the button. Cool :)

    Merry Christmas, Pete.

    As more stations, and their jingles, morph into corporate network generic blandness and "bleepy ill-fitting sonic logos", I find it harder to find any "new" sung Christmas cuts to compile a traditional Christmas Jingle Montage.

    With the exception of one "local" station (aka local sometimes, otherwise very clever "on [station name inserted by the playout system in the same presenter's voice]", whose "Christmas strapline" is sung to what appears to be the exact same melody as their number one competitors existing and well-established "normal every day strapline" melody), the only really FRESH Christmas stuff I've heard of late has been... very recent re-sings on JM - so thank you Len, Ratnob and Upsweep for at least keeping the spirit of "Christmas Cuts" alive o({:^)

    So, with some fresh (jingle) wrapping paper around last year's packet of hankies, here's my previous Christmas effort for those (un)fortunate enough not have heard it.

    Great stuff, Iain - I've always liked that saccharine Tanner Christmas cut (here for Manx Radio - around 2:40). Thanks for posting.
  • IainJohnstonIainJohnston December 2015
    Thanks Geoff :^)

    I've got a dub of that package still lurking somewhere, probably in mp3 - first heard the cuts late one night long ago long-distance (thats "DX" for younger listeners...) crystal clear but with a good old-fashioned 'het whistle in the background. Tape is ... somewhere...

    There's a "'Tis the Season to be Jolly" cut also - in TWO versions - one for the "Holiday Season" (i.e. USA Xmas) and one for the ...er... "holidays", as at that time the UK and the USA didn't quite understand each other on the meaning of "Holidays" i.e. UK "summer holidays" = USA "vacation" and Christmas is...

    Hence why a deep dig can uncover e.g. various earlier Radio Two JAM never-aired cuts for just that reason, and there's a few ILR station items "Out There" in similar "separated by a common language" vein...
    oO(:^)

    (A challenge for anyone to post a few?)

    PS - Geoff - just playing your "Christmas Cracker" on the S/c panel - did I really hear a quick bit from the old EAP 7" demo vinyl ?!?!?

    Sadly, yes
  • IainJohnstonIainJohnston December 2015
    Absolutely NOTHING whatsoever to do with jingles - but for everyone who had a Scalextric (pronounced Scale-ect-trix in Scotland!) set as a hobby before "discovering jingles)...fell free to drool at this...

    And, yes, ours is STILL in a box in the garage and working - but no arty-farty digital/wirefree controller nonsense though!

    Merry Christmas One and All !

    Fantastic stuff Pete and thanks for sharing your mix again Iain.

    I would just like to take this opportunity to wish everyone on here a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2016.

    And talking about fresh wrapping paper around last year's offering, here's the 2014 remix of my Christmas JingleMix for those who haven't heard it or would like to hear it again!

    My mix of festive jingles was first conceived back in 2004 as "JingleMad JingleMix Volume 4". In 2007 I dusted the cobwebs off this mix and revamped it with additional material. Since then, the mix was updated with additional festive cuts (including my own Christmas personal cuts from JAM) in 2010, 2011, 2012 and finally last year in 2014.

    As we are now fast approaching Christmas Day I thought I would share my festive jingle mix once again with everyone on JingleMad and in doing so, wish you all a Merry Christmas:

    https://soundcloud.com/m_hodgey/jinglemad-jinglemix-volume-4-christmas-2004-2014-remix

    As ever, to truly appreciate the mix, please make sure you belt it out at top blast whilst having Christmas Dinner!

    The link is working now - I'd mistakenly marked the file as "private" instead of "public". Enjoy!

    Merry Christmas, everyone. Hope you're all watching Willy Wonka on itv3. Soon to be remade as Jonny Jingles and the Jam Factory.

    5 Golden Tickets to the Vault, but who will make it all the way without taking copies of the masters, dubbing copies they shouldn't be, or taking the gold discs on the wall? ☺
  • IainJohnstonIainJohnston December 2016
    Careful 'rak - everyone will think those tickets are REAL!!! (... OK, we wish......)

    Meanwhile...

    Fantastic stuff as ever Pete and Iain!

    With a sense of déjà vu and not wanting to break tradition, as we are now fast approaching Christmas Day, I thought I would share the 2016 remix of my Christmas JingleMix with everyone on JingleMad, and in doing so, wish you all a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2017:

    I hope you all enjoy it; especially if you missed the previous versions of my festive jingle mix.

    To truly appreciate the mix, please make sure you belt it out at top blast whilst having Christmas Dinner!

    Merry Christmas everybody... I have something jingly to wake up to, thank you Jon!
  • LenGroatLenGroat December 2016
    A seasonal THANK YOU to everyone for this topic (particularly 'Hodgey' for the amazing compilation) + all the others posts, audio, and lively debate in 2016 !

    Here's a seasonal jingle surprise and quiz - I FORGOT to add this when we got it in 2015 - can't believe that as it's one of the BEST most usable jingles we've had from JAM - we LOVE it and it's a personal favourite!

    https://soundcloud.com/len-groat/whistle-full

    How long before someone can 'NAME THAT JINGLE PACKAGE' - and any guesses as to who is whistling? :-)

    I don't recall hearing ANY re-sings for this superb cut.... can someone find one to add :-)

    Best wishes for an even more jingleiferous 2017...........

    Len

  • IainJohnstonIainJohnston December 2016
    Duncan, I believe your order came through just a few days earlier - what cut(s) did you get? :^)

    If you're not hearing enough Christmas jingles on the radio, try turning on the TV:

    Antenna TV :30 Xmas video

    And since the jingle is never loud enough, here's the audio by itself:

    Antenna TV :30 Xmas audio

    Happy holidays to all from JAM!
