iHeart90s JAM Jingle Montage
  • gameswizardgameswizard February 1
    A montage of iHeart90s JAM jingles from 9 continuous hours yesterday via the iHeartsRadio stream.

    Loving those punchy jingles from Parkdale Drive

    Blimey, Jon's been busy with all these resings for all these channels. Couldn't be happier*.

    * except if they were proper radio stations rather the equivalent of iTunes mixes.

    The programming of my diswasher is more interesting that that channel. There is so much great JAM stuff that and production you could do to make the channel rock. It sounds like its designed to play in Malls to be honest .....iheart90s may have heart but no soul!

    The jingle selection is limited, the non-sung imaging does leave something to be desired, and of course there are no DJ's. Still, the jingles they do have are great, and the music is right up my alley and well-programmed, so I do find myself listening a fair amount.

    Silly question but how do you listen to any of these iHeart decades?
    I went to their main site and couldn't even get the main page to load properly..
    Do I need a US VPN to access it and if so anybody know of any proper Free one's.... ;-)

    The iHeartRadio streams aren't geoblocked, you just need a 'sideloaded' iHeartRadio app installed and no need for a VPN. Quite easy on Android, but no idea about how to do that on Apple phones. You should then be able to share it to a TV set, or bluetooth radio in the car.

    Unfortunately on searching for the iHeart Radio app on my iPhone I only get the dodgy Global station sadly. RadioSure won’t load either sadly ☹️
  • BigdaveBigdave February 2
    I'd love to know what playout system IHeart are using. At the moment, it sounds like they've allowed whatever they're using to tag the intros and outro's automatically, which means the segues are really sloppy, and subsequently leaving gaps before the tracks kick in that you could drive an artic through... :-(

    When done well ( as is the case with Vinyl Heaven - http://www.vinylheaven.co.uk ), a station without jocks playing continuous music can sound fantastic. But at the moment, both the 80s and 90's stations need a lot of work doing on them to bring them up to scratch. I'm sure those on here who work in radio, those who use playout software in their stations, and those who do music programming recently are thinking "give me a week with it - I'd tighten up the segue, sort out the music programming, and how the imaging should work.."

    I downloaded it Mike..
    But "iheart 50's/60's" isn't in the list of 31,530 stations found (Even tried it in alphabetical order) BUT did find KINO 1610AM (MyKoolFM) playing JAM Jingles! :-)
    Dave this is a"Off-Air" Jingle Collectors paradise! ;-)

    Hi Pete.
    I forgot to mention the stations list would need updating as it could be pretty old.
    Exit RadioSure so that it is not running.
    Download the latest stations list and extract it.
    http://radiosure.com/rsdbms/stations2.zip
    Depending on your operating system, open this folder:
    C:\Program Files\RadioSure\Stations
    Remove (or delete) the following file from that folder:
    stations-20**-**-**.rsd (DON'T delete stations.rsdx).
    Put the latest file, stations-2019-02-03.rsd, from the .zip you downloaded into the stations folder. Start RadioSure.

    I double-checked the current station list & both iHeart50s and iHeart60s aren't currently included, so you'll need to add them yourself 1 at a time.
    Right-click anywhere on RadioSure's interface>Add new station.
    Enter your own station details (Title, Genre etc.).
    The Sources URL for iHeart50s:
    iHeart50s = http://c1icy.prod.playlists.ihrhls.com/6882_icy
    The Sources URL for iHeart60s:
    iHeart60s = http://c1icy.prod.playlists.ihrhls.com/6873_icy
    (Either copy and paste the Source URLs or type them manually).

    Thanks Mike.....Yes added these two manually BUT the actual Radio Station List updated automatically after being on for about 15 minutes!
    What a nice little FREE program... :-)
    Incidentally I had a (short) listen to the Australian version of iHeart….Jingles yes but Dallas no!!
