BBC Radio London Jingles 1976-1988
  • jinglettjinglett May 2012
    Enjoy these jingles from the BBC's station in London - a station that went through many changes from easy listening to sex, soul and hard news! The first few are Paddy Kingsland followed by the "All for You" Emison package. The second set is a mixture of Alphasound packages used from 1983-1988.

    Many thanks for these – I’ve collected a lot of BBC Radio London material over the years - but you’ve included a lot of cuts which I’ve missed.

    Did you happen to work at the Station?

    Thanks again…

    Mark.
  • Those are excellent Jinglett......
    Something else I've learnt today...BBC Radio London had a Jingle Package by Paddy Kingsland (BBC Radiophonic Workshop-fame?)

    Thanks for that!! :-)

  • So the PADDY KINGSMAN Package came AFTER Emison (before Alfasound)?
    I remember it as thats when Mr Blackburn joined the station on a regular basis and the voiceover guy was the guy who did the v/o's for all those "How have you survived without this gadget" type TV Commercials (K-TEL?) The one's you get nowadays in the Betterbuy catalogues,etc..... :-)
    Anyway any chance of getting a copy of that unembargoed item please david?
    Cash or Kind!!!! ;-)
