July 4th Airchexx Special – Jingle Montage Remastered 2007

First posted back in October of 2004 on this site, the original jingle montage ran 31 minutes and was in Real Audio format. I turned this into the July 4th Special for our 7/4/2007 update.

Specifically highlighted are jingles from various sources including collector Joe Tedd from Long Island, several JAM Creative Productions packages (which I purchased), and various contributors over the years. Make note of some great, some OBSCURE cuts from WCBS-FM, WABC, WLS, WNBC, WNOK, WAKY and a boatload of individual cuts dropped in from other markets you haven’t heard jingles from in a long, long time!

This special is for the jingle lover… and the radio lover. I do say a few words, but mainly stay out of the way of this ‘aircheck’… if you can call it that.

Please… LISTEN, and enjoy this fantastic jingle montage that runs about 55 minutes long. Thats long enough to put on in the background while doing the household chores!

    hi steve thanks for the great jingle montage, any more coming anytime soon. jb

  7. Yes Jim, As soon as I unpack the boxes up here at my new residence I’ll start work on the next one. I have a bunch of new, different jingles obtained since this one was done the first time… so everyone hang on. Probably do one by the end of the Summer!

    As I’m listening to WABC’s bumpers, I can’t help but think this where the Jack outlet here in Metro NYC got the idea for some of their promo inventory. Now that the fader seems to be heading south on Jack NYC, I hope some of that history is captured. Although I’m glad some of the best in the industry will probably get their job back at WCBS-FM, I’m really going to miss the trainwreck format……

    The Daughtry Double Shot transitioned with a classic WABC bumper was absolutely classic radio. Fantastic! Sent chills up and down my spine. The perfect marriage on now and then. What a way to end your retrospective. Thank you Steve!

  11. Fantastic!

    You sound like a DJ I knew in the past named Larry Mars, but more experienced.

    This was very unique- More!


    • Larry Mars… Well, Susan, The only DJ I ever heard with that name I last heard on an old Country station in the late 80s in Suffolk, VA. WSKX – ‘Kix 106’. Or was it WKEZ 94.1 in Yorktown? Anyway, I am not he and vice-versa. But thanks for the compliment! 🙂
