Rocket Radio sung ID - who produced it?
  • mastymasty January 13
    Back in the 90s I worked on a RSL in Medway called Rocket Radio. Was transferring some old cassettes this weekend and found one of the old shows. Any ideas who produced the sung ID? I think the VO might be Andy McColl (formerly LBC, BBC London etc)

    Alfasound vocals over possibly a JAM track. Not able to hear very clearly as listening in a noisy environment at the moment.
  • mbmb January 13
    Agree with Jonno - It's a JAM track with Alfasound UK Singers

    The jingle rings a bell, but I can't put my finger on other stations that have had it re-sun. Michael - I ought to know as it is probably in amongst those files you sent me last week ;-)
  • mbmb January 13
    I keep thinking Mercury Extra or Fame 1521 or Fortune

    Agreed - It's a JAM track with Alfasound UK Singers.

    The JAM track in question is "Hi-Qume" Cut #13, originally created for Q95 Detroit.

    I think I have that cut on an aircheck cassette somewhere of MFM (i.e. "Marcher FM") in the Wirral.

    Edit:- Hodgey's post has just jumped in ahead of me posting!

    Could someone clarify which JAM package the second cut there comes from please?

    Thanks Jeffrey
    So many UK stations got loads of "Q" jingles in composites, either Dallas or Alfasound vocals.
  • mbmb January 15
    I was thinking the same when I saw this thread - Alongside the Z100 series the Q jingle packages were well used by UK stations.

    "the Q jingle packages were well used by UK stations"

    Any time driving "Down South" in that era I could hear them more or less on "alternate" TSAs, i.e. no "official"
    overlap, but still "pickup-able" chessboard-wise.

    Certainly from Aberdeen to Cornwall :^)
