Once Upon a Time - Christmas Montages
  • IainJohnstonIainJohnston December 2018
    Used to be at this time of year, jingle collectors would feverishly scan their disks for
    Christmas cuts to compile a cheery "Seasonal" offering.

    So far, on-air I've heard only ONE Christmas jingle, the several years old Radio Two one.

    Commercial radio still in "Groundhog Day plus Now Its Christmas Volume 823 of the same 20 desperately tired songs in a different order".

    So, with apologies, here's some reheated turkey of my 2015 Christmas Montage!

    PS - at least its not my 2009 one yet again....!

    A Merry Christmas To JMers Everywhere, wherever you may be.... o0{[:^)){

    Thanks I.J. !!

    The re-heated montage 'hit the spot' ....

    And thanks for including 2 of our GEM cuts - the one at the end has Jackie Dickson dong the 'Merry Xmas' shout (back in 1988)

    May I be so bold as to point out internet stations: and we don't have just 20 seasonal songs on GEM... but 929 - take a listen!

    Merry Christmas !!

    No need to apologise Iain, loved listening to your re-heated Xmas montage again!

    It’s only fitting that I jump onboard here and share the 2017 update to my Christmas JingleMix once more:


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

    Merry Christmas !!

    So rather than one big long one I've decided to do some station specific montages.
    Here's the very lovely jingles that Red Rose used over the years at Christmas.
    Featuring my all time favourite Christmas jingles to the tune of Rudolf (I think one of the best custom Christmas Jingles ever made) and a great Christmas non-Christmas jingle from JAM

    I'm liking Michael's idea of doing a single station-at-a-time's Christmas jingles...
    so lets try this one as another "Jingle Christmas Selection Box"

    Must admit there's a few on the Red Rose I've not heard before.

    !!!!!
    Yet more Christmas ones I've not heard before!
    And Alfasound "With Bells On!" mixes not on certain Ref Tapes either!

    Yes I agree...SKY Radio have always had the BEST Jingles since Day One (Even better before they went Dutch and I could understand the lyrics!) ;-)
  • m_hodgeym_hodgey December 2018
    For the record Pete, I think they have only ever sang the frequencies in Dutch; a practice that was first heard on the 1995 Top Format/JAM custom “Best of Both Skies” package.

    No Mark I am OLD enough to remember the original Sky Radio (Owned by the Then Sky Channel) and the English satellite only station..;-)

    Here's my belated contribution: a short montage showing that here in the USA, festive JAM jingles could still be found in 2018 if you knew where to look!
