Airchexx Presents: The WLS Jingle Montage

Courtesy of Contributor and Featured Jock Allen Beebe…

Jingle freaks, this is as close to heaven as one can get! Starting with the first Top 40 jingle package, An Anita Kerr package, if I recall correctly, this blows through many of the major jingles heard on WLS from 1960 through the talkradio years! Whether you liked the old “Eight-Nine-Oh, Chicago” melody, “The Rock Of Chicago” or just “89 WLS”, you’ll hear all melodies represented here.

These somehow came right from the original reels, all are in ultra-high quality, and some even from the 70s are in STEREO! But beware, this moves along really fast, and while it runs about 7 and a half minutes, it isn’t all-inclusive, as WLS, like it’s sister station WABC, aired hundreds of jingles over the years.

No matter what jingle company or what era you like best, you’ll LOVE this wonderful montage of the jingles that helped make WLS the Rock of Chicago!

    I used to listen to Ron Riley at night from Tennessee in the early 60′s. I think that Ron is a TV weatherman in Baltimore now. I don’t think he ran his own board at WLS. I think someone ran it for him and he would just cue them to play what was next to air.

    Thanks for this! Still remember most of them….especially “Musicradio WLS!” WLS-FM still runs it during the daytime.

    The WLS tribute station at http://musicradiowls.com plays a much larger variety of the great old jingles. I’ve noticed that the current WLS-FM has seriously limited the variety of jingles they’re playing.
