    A very interesting listen.

    Thanks to you, Morgan, for researching and producing the piece. Lots of info we've never heard before, from voices we've only ever heard singing (as opposed to talking) ;)

    OK, audio can be extracted by a bit of rightclick jiggerypokery to download the "entire page" to a folder,
    where the approx 150 meg mp3 file can then be found amongst the control files and other stuff.

    A nice bit of production work too, and well worth a listen (even if a bit at a time...)

    And collectors of certain vintage will like the nod to the PAMS Copyright Disclaimer :^)

    What an interesting listen – thanks for posting!
  • Excellent audio documentary! Best history of ID jingles since the Ken R. jingle books.

    I echo all the comments here. A great and informative listen and not opionated from the host which helps. Well done :)
  • Very interesting and I applaud the effort, even though I found it a little difficult to understand at times. Shame all the interview were done by 'phone. Skype audio would have been so much better and relatively easy to set up. Jon could probably have rigged a 4K video feed too !

    I learnt a lot from this, and it was great to hear those legendary singers talking with such evident pride about the business.
  • Thanks for the comments, everyone! Personally, I was fascinated by Terry Lea's tales about the earliest jingles in Dallas (late 1940s-1960ish). To think, they were recording in a theater at 10pm at night...wild! Jingles in Dallas, as Jon put it, just "happened" out of what was already going on, and it really hasn't stopped nearly 60-70 years later (hence my section on jingles today). That's one reason why jingles are so cool.
