We made several visits to the topic of radio jingles, how they are
made and what programmers in the early 1980's thought they were
for. Their use seemed to go in waves, sometimes stations overused
them and there were periods when stations hardly used them at all.
There were enthusiasts like Tom Konard who made vast collections of
station idents and sweepers. Some are still on line - check this
reference. http://www.reelradio.com/af/index.html . This show was
broadcast on December 29th 1983 and I remember the recording well.
Technican Pim Wijmer thought it would be a simple mix and wondered
why I had booked four hours of studio time. Today, you can make the
same show on a laptop using free multitrack software. In those days
you had to cut and splice audio tape and cue everthing with yellow
leader. There was more yellow leader on those montages than tape.
Fun, nonetheless. Let me know if you want to hear more of these
kind of features.
