    Good news! The "Barbershop Fun" cut from series 33B for WABC has been found in a YouTube video about PAMS acapellas. It's at 40 seconds into the video and it was re-sung for at least one station, WHB in Kansas City, and the WHB version of the cut has the word "nutty" instead of "lovely".

    Not quite sure what the fuss is about one cut two years after previous thread entries?

    However, I've had the item on a station-recorded reel since.....1971, so here it is

    The WABC version of the "Barbershop Fun" cut can be found 40 seconds into the YouTube video above.

    The WABC version of the "Chicken 50" cut, also from series 33B, can be found in the WABC Jingle History section of the JAM website.

    There's also at least one cut of JAM's Outstanding for WABC, cut 4.
