Lovely lovely TV ads featuring jingles - sometimes

I love this shamelessly brash advert for KEY103



Relaunch after they realised KEY103 had disappeared up its own backside with Music not music ( sound ideas jingles in the background)



Fancy some cash whilst listening to JAM Jingles:-



Xtra AM



Capital Radio



Take a Chris Tarrant Advert - lack of creativity - a takeover and bingo an Advert for BRMB



More money:-





I can't find the lovely animated KEY103 Advert :(

and if Piccadilly can go on TV:-



There was a reworked version of the above with the standard sound jingles!!

Comments

  • Good thread Michael - I think the first Key 103 ad is the least awful. All studio footage is entirely faked of course.
  • You mean that's not how BRMB or Capital studios look - :) although the global ones now look plastic and fake but are Real!

  • I love all of these - a reminder of how radio stations connect with their towns and cities with station names that mean something locally, and personalities ... and jingles. Great stuff. Thanks for posting this great slice of nostalgia.

    Something seems wrong with this one.. The VO says 'find us on 792 and 828' and this is followed immediately by a sung jingle "97 FM Chiltern Radio" mixed messages !!

    ah, that well known condition: spurious "g" syndrome!
  • London calling…





  • Red Dragon Radio

  • Radio Clyde;-


    This is why BRMB, Mercia, Wyvern and Beacon became Free - So they could do TV ads - so they say

    Here's my contribution...slightly off-topic, but still jingle related.

    The cringeworthy 1989 publicity promos for TVS as part of their bid to retain their Channel 3 licence, however the very catchy soundtrack was provided by Alfasound with JAM vocals. However there was an earlier version with TM vocals...

    That first advert for Key 103 was also voiced over later on by Radio Luxembourg's Benny Brown and it had an electronic style dropping scale sound over the volume knob turning ;)
  • Not only did jingles become ad campaigns for the UK. It just pops up everywhere in the US during that vintage timeframe. For example, Check out this cool jingle package done by Bernie Krause for KOFY-TV, formely known as KTZO-TV: In the beginning, The slogan was "Heart of the city, Top of the bay". The slogan ended up changing to "We've got what you're looking for". Whoever these jingle singers are, they sung in unison. And when they got to the "Twen-Teee!!!", They sing in perfect harmony.

    I can say that these jingles are definitely a cup of KOFY. (pun intended)
    Turns out, according to one commenter, "it was actually done in San Francisco by Bernie Krause and his studio Parasound."
    Good jingles though.


  • JAM IS STILL THE ONE
  • This world ain't enough for radio station ads with jingles in them.
    Let's add more to this thread.
