JAM jingle on Wave105 today - or were my ears deceiving me?
  • jonnojonno November 24
    While at work today I'm sure I heard a JAM jingle on Wave105. The radio was on very quietly in the background and I was talking to a colleague at the time - so I might be wrong, but something triggered the old jingle radar :)

    Radio Bloke Rick will know? :^)

    That jingle radar is always there. I was in the local butchers a while ago when I heard an Alfasound jingle on Radio 2. It was Ivan Brackenbury of course :)

    Iain, I've already dropped Rick and email ;-)

    Ian, he's bonkers ;-) it was my Sonifex cart machines they used in the Hospital People series on BBC1.

    Your ears weren't deceiving you. A couple of cuts have been on air since August for an 80s feature.

    That's the one! Thanks for confirming :-)

    Aha short but sweet - Jonno, your jingle radar is definitely in tip top condition.

    The fact that you heard it at all shows the power of a jingle that DOES sound different from the music a station plays.

    Thanks Neal for the audio.
