"BBC Radio" package late 80s
  • mastymasty July 22
    Hi all, back at the end of the 80s as a young jingle fan, I remember hearing some cuts played on Radio Kent that were not from their Alfasound package but singing a generic BBC Radio tag. If memory is right, the words on one of the cuts were 'more news, more music, more fun... it's the best in Britain... BBC Radioooooo". There was also a cut that simply sang "Traffic and Travel". Anybody remember these or have airchecks?!

    Seems to have everybody foxed! It sounded like a generic BBC package but my memory is hazy!
  • I recall from an old aircheck cassette of that era that R.Kent seemed to be "good" at airing "edited things"
    that perhaps they shouldn't really have had on-air "without the prior written consent of..." ?

    I remember Radio Leicester using an instrumental JAM jingle back in '83. I think it was an old Radio 1 jingle. Come to think of it Signal Radio were using a JAM bed for a promo in '84 too....
