Jon Wolfert (JAM) returns to Rewound Radio
  • Apparently it will be a weekly show too! As per Allan Sniffen of the Rewound Radio/The New York Radio Message Board...

    Jon Wolfert, president of JAM (the biggest jingle creator/producer in the country) starts a LIVE show tomorrow (Saturday) on Rewound Radio. He'll be on after my live show at 5PM (E).

    After his first show tomorrow, Jon will continue his series of live Rewound Radio shows on Sundays.

    Jon will be doing a DJ show so he'll be playing music plus he'll also be doing special segments on the radio jingles. If you've got a request for a classic jingle you'd like him to play, you can do it via the special link we've set up (see below).

    Jon has done other shows on Rewound Radio but this is a live show which makes it more fun for listeners and also for him! The best radio is done live (as I think everyone on the NYRMB knows!).
  • Just to avoid confusion, Jon won't be on after mjb1124, but after Allen Sniffen, owner of Rewound Radio and the New York Radio Bulletin Board

    This is the Board link, and a site ALWAYS worth having wander around, and that includes UK and others visiting too!

  • Just to avoid confusion, Jon won't be on after mjb1124



    It's a nice thought though! :)
  • Thanks for correcting your wee grammatical hiccup in the original post mjb!

    Wonder what the "jingle bits" Jon is going to do will be about?
    He's told so many anecdotes before on so many occasions, yet his wealth of "jingle knowledge" is mind-boggling!
  • ratnobratnob June 1
    Oh, wow. This is good news. Jon goes back to his radio roots.
  • If I got this right: The show starts 22:00 BST in the UK?
  • If anyone recorded the show, please drop me a line ;)
  • nleibonleibo June 3
    I can tell you that during the final 15 minutes of the show,there were several "buffering" incidents which caused me to lose the connection (Ethernet) for upwards of up to 3 minutes or so.. :(
  • Hi folks. Is there a link to recording or replay of this show somewhere?
  • nleibonleibo June 5
    No per Allan Sniffen:<<"*NO* show that contains music can be made available for download (legally). Not without paying additional copyright fees. "<<
  • Ok. Can I enquire if anyone recorded it, for personal use of course, and would be willing to make it available to me?

    There's a 'scoped aircheck (it's still over an hour long because I talk too much!) here:

    Jon on Rewound June 2
  • Link ne marche pas Jon

    Best it does is offer G00gle search and ends up on the Rewound site but no-show of the aircheck.
    (Unless some kind of geo- or other blocking to UK ? )
  • Link ne marche pas Jon



    Quelle tristesse. Thanks for the heads-up.

    I don't know what went wrong, but here's the link:

    http://www.jingles.com/audio/stash/Rewound-2Jun18.mp3

    There's another show on Sunday.
  • nleibonleibo June 9
    Thank You for "scoped" air check, Jon
  • Hi Jon. Thanks for the aircheck. Appreciate it. Will listen later.
  • Thanks Jon, but what a shame. The scoped version is only 1 hour and 10 minutes ;)
  • nleibonleibo June 9
    Can't post the music...:)
  • Listened to today's show - even managed to get a namecheck - thank you Jon !

    Recorded much of it, but had a number of the "buffering incidents" similar to the situation reported last week.
    Possibly due to how fragile all those little packets of glued-together-data are travelling thousands of miles
    from NY to UK but possibly Jon may again provide a scoped version?
  • nleibonleibo June 11
    Indeed Iain--"More Buffering, More often"--could be a great jingle, Jon..:). seriously, though it knocks the heck out of "continuity"...:(
  • "More Buffering, More Often" is at least a better format than "All Buffering, All the Time"
    as on many jingle (and other) websites back in the dial-up era!
    :^)

    PS - the interview with Geoff Fox (Foxx?) was far more interesting than I expected - worth remembering
    that many "dee-jays" of the hey-day of US Top 40 radio were far more versatile (and indeed talented)
    than many of today's bland FacePalm/TooYube-dependent "presenters".

    And the "thrill" the guy got on for the first time having a station get him a jingle actually with HIS name sung on it!
    (...and REAL name at that, rather than the generic plug-in names used by many stations in the past, e.g. a particular
    group of stations used the name "Johnny Dark" for their night-time DJs on every station, even if one left and other
    person took over the slot the "name" remained the same).

    A highly-commended listen!
  • It was a pleasure to listen to the show last sunday.
    Unfortunally I missed the first 30 minutes and last hour.
    Does anyone recorded the show or maybe have a scoped aircheck?

    Thanks,

    Peter
  • nleibonleibo June 16
    Jon provided one for the first show he did (seems there was a few "buffering" issues)--perhaps he will again.....
  • I had couple of times dropouts because of buffer problems, but that was not a problem for me.

    It's here:
    http://www.jingles.com/audio/stash/Rewound-10Jun18-sh.mp3

    This was recorded from "the air" (the stream) and there were a couple of times where it dropped out and we had to just slap together what was left.

  • Thanks Jon :-)
  • Driving into work (in the sunshine!) listening to Jon's second show sure beats the London stations.
    Please keep the scoped airchecks coming
  • Great show yesterday. Unfortunally there were some problems the first 30 minutes with the internet connection from JAM headquarters.
    I enjoyed the inside jingle stories and the background info on specific jingles/packages. Jon has also great DJ scales (knowledge of the music, talking over intros .e.t.c.).
    Maybe choosing an other radio automation system, but you can't have it all :-)

    Peter
  • IanFIanF June 18
    Great show Jon and thanks for the upload/link :)
  • Please keep the scoped airchecks coming


    OK, for those of you who just can't get enough:

    http://www.jingles.com/audio/stash/Rewound-17Jun18.mp3

    You really need to get out more :)
    Thanks for the nice comments.

  • PKPK June 18
    But it’s your fault we’re not getting out Jon lol!????Great to hear you doing Radio again! Thanks.
  • Davey_wDavey_w June 24
    Looking forward to today's show - Jon will be chatting to Trella Hart and Abby Holmes!! It starts at 3pm (ET) so for us Brits that means 8pm. Unfortunately I'm going to miss the first hour, but I'll be joining you all for the second hour. Hopefully Jon will be kind enough to put a link up to listen again soon.
  • PPMPPM June 24
    Oh wow, I hope a recording of this weeks episode is going to be made available. Jon just played the famous Radio 1 jingle "playing the oldies.....National radio 1" sung by Abby Holmes. He then played a resing of the same jingle Abby recorded for Radio 1's 50th anniversary last year.

    Thank you for posting this John.

  • Here's the Rewound Radio show from June 24.

    Even with the songs cut out, it's still over 2 hours long! (The interview alone was an hour.)
    http://www.jingles.com/audio/stash/Rewound-24Jun18.mp3

    The interview starts at around 30:45, but skip at your own risk because there are fun jingle segments to either side.

    Thanks for listening!
  • MarkSMarkS June 27
    Thank you Jon for this outstanding series of programs. It has been compelling listening - an excellent mixture of music, jingles and 'behind the scenes' anecdotes about the industry. Look forward to your return later in the summer. Thanks again!
  • ratnobratnob June 27

    This makes for brilliant, informative, intelligent listening. Really enjoyed.
  • How delicious to have long, in-depth interviews with both Abby and Trella... precious memories recorded for posterity...

    .... I always remember watching Abby (and Chris) doing the solos/duet on our Trent cut "Christmas is here there's lights on the tree..." in 1991,,,

    These were then 'preserved' on the GEM re-sing 3 years ago....

  • Not that anyone asked, but here's the telescoped "aircheck" of the Rewound Radio show from July 8:

    Hope you find it interesting. Thanks.
  • ratnobratnob July 10

    Am kicking myself for not listening live - had thought you were taking a summer radio break. Delighted to have this scoped aircheck. Thank you!
  • nleibonleibo July 10
    Same here, Jon--thought you were "off" for a "while"--and nothing from "Doc" Sniffen on the NYRMB about your "return"..:)
  • nleibo said:

  • ratnobratnob July 10
    This is a brilliant show - I loved the KQV Pittsburgh segment, and Jon's very personal tribute (with amazing audio) to Dan Ingram is fascinating and poignant. Go listen now.
  • ejjeffejjeff July 11
    It ia a treat to hear Jon every week on Rewound Radio talking about jingles. It was awesome to hear Jon mention my KQV website when he did the KQV Pittsburgh segment. There are many links to the site. Here is one of them. http://14kqv.radiosite.org (Jeff Roteman)

    It was on the NYRMB & NYBHB I learned of your shows & for several weeks after, saw updates on those Boards--so why would I look elsewhere? But I DID get to hear the scoped version (which is fine with me)--and enjoy the show immensely, Jon. If i keep listening, someday I may actually get to HEAR my jingle requests (so far 0 for 3)...:)

  • IanFIanF July 11
    I've liked the Rewound Facebook page now for notifications. Another great show Jon btw
  • ratnobratnob July 11

    Yep - do listen: loads of fascinating insights (eg on jingle logos) and a wonderful, deeply personal tribute to the great Dan Ingram
  • Just a quick reminder that JMW is on again today 29th July
    https://www.musicradio77.com/wwwboard/messages/444400.html
  • Just saw on Facebook that Jon is back this afternoon...looking forward to the show!
  • jonnojonno July 29
    tuned in ready :)
  • It's JMW... go go go! This is awesome!
  • ratnobratnob July 30

    And a great show it was. I used to only ever listen to radio for (a) the jingles and (b) the presenters, but with this I'm also - shock horror - really enjoying the music. And I'm hoping we can prevail on Mr W to share a telescoped version of the show in due course. GB
  • jonnojonno July 30
    I'll echo your comments Geoff, the music was superb. This might make me sound like a pop music philistine but I didn't know Stevie Wonder recorded 'We Can Work it Out'!
  • PKPK July 30
    It’s on Motown Chartbusters Volume 6!????
  • For those who listened live to the complete show...were either of my Jingle Requests fulfilled? (Radio One/Two or Sydney Radio Australia)
    Trying to get some non-US stations played! ;-)
  • I'm hoping we can prevail on Mr W to share a telescoped version of the show in due course. GB

    Yes please. My excuse for missing it, I was on a plane (not Jon's)

    Totally agree. My Sunday nights (always fun of anxiety about the week ahead) now provide the pleasure of listening to someone who talks wittily and intelligently to me the listener and, in this show, says nice things about my 29th wedding anniversary. How did that happen?

    Great audio - and listen particularly for the sensitive discussion of the 'should radio' jingles.

  • Oddly enough, a Bob Dinan got namechecked this week...
    :^)
  • glenglen August 10
    Why is that odd?
  • nleibonleibo August 11
    Jon said something last Sunday about doing the entire show without headphones--i didn't quite understand why, though it's always a great show (with or without headphones)..:) Any ideas?
  • In Adobe Audition, what sort of settings would be appropriate to "re-create" a reverb effect similar to what Jon has going on? Thanks.

    This was not of choice but as Jon said at the start the headphones was not working !

    I still think he did great job without them better than most with !

  • Jon did refer to a headphone problem - then later said how at WABC when he visited them all those years ago
    that there would be an open speaker in the studio just on the verge of howl-round.

    GW - could Jon have an actual spring reverb unit?
    I used to have one, and I much regret now binning it yonks ago!
  • could Jon have an actual spring reverb unit?

    I'd be surprised if he didn't, but it should be possible to create something "similar" in Adobe.
  • I still use £6-99 Magix Audio Cleaning Lab - its still got the best "reverb" (to my aging ears at least),
    but I find many of the more "fancy" contemporary sooper-dooper "digital processing" software ones
    a bit rough/sharpish rather than ones that try to emulate "analogue reverb" a bit better.

    Wish JMW would let us know how he does it though!
    Its closer to old 1960s AM WABC I suspect, and that's got to be what he's technically trying to re-create.
  • jonnojonno August 11
    I could be wrong (and most probably am - so happy to be corrected) but didn't WABC have an EMT Plate Reverb unit and I've a funny feeling I read that Jon has one at JAM.

  • logodavelogodave August 11
    An EMT lives at JAM. I used 12% at WNCI. Orban Optimod 8200 in nighttime pump processing mode. 175.000 watts erp. We covered all Ohio and most of Northern West Virginia, West Indiana and metro Dayton and Cincinnati. Plus Cleveland and Toledo on a good day. I had prize winners in Toledo and Michigan. That place was a gas in the mid 90's. Digital ruined the fun. Analog was the bomb.
  • nleibonleibo August 16
    Anyone have the "scoped" Jon Wolfert Show from August 12th?
