LogoMax: New JAM Package for Now 97-9 (KBZN Salt Lake City, UT)

Had a bit of a car ride to school to drop off books, so thought I'd indulge in some jingles. Went to the JAM website and found this:

This appears to be a new JAM package for Now 97-9 (KBZN Salt Lake City, UT). They sound really great on their own, and I was hoping to hear them in use off the live stream, but I can't access it. Nevertheless, nice job to John and all the folks at JAM.

    Hmmm!
    Quite pleasantly "fresh" sounding.
    :^)

    1) are these all virtually at the same tempo?
    2) to play the cut-by-cut I had to unblock Flash, as its going to be a goner by the end of this year;
    I'm hoping that Jon will have a different playout system available before too long?

    On-air stream NOT geo-blocked in Scotland at least - just peppered-over with some kind of UK-based ads.
    However..

    Comment - the female "DJ" appears to be just a V/O insert of artiste-songtitle - extremely dull, and
    the rest V/O plugged-in weather etc.
    Maybe I tuned-in at a quiet time? UK 1715 hours, probably midday Utah?
    Mechanical radio at its worst?

  • A slight aside - for flightradar24 fans, call letters are the same as an airport code!

    As for 97-9, a certain JMer used to have a "station" on CDs that sounded much more exciting than that!
    And his "v/o people" sounded quite like the ones on 97-9!
    :^)

  • Thanks for posting the montages. Anyone know who the more EDM-sounding cuts are from?

    The LogoMax cuts are all at fast or medium tempos, yes.

  • Funnily enough, I thought I'd browse the JAM site last night and came across these. I especially like the top of the hour cut.

  • These LogoMax cuts have actually been around for a few years, I think they were done at the same time as the Streamline package. The "EDM sounding" cuts ntcarver mentioned have also been around a little while, and play coming out of commercial breaks. Not sure who did them, but I don't think it's JAM.

    Also, the TOH currently being used on air is from After Burner. I've heard a cut from Kiss & Tell as well, so I guess they've cherry picked from some off-the-shelf packages in addition to the custom stuff.

    The station does have proper DJ's for the record, the voices you hear are pre-recorded "song tags".

  • "TOH currently being used on air is from After Burner"

    THATs why the "Whoosh" effect at the start of the cut and the weather one seemed familiar!

    Mix of JAM & IMGR jingles.

    That would explain why I didn't recognize the IMGR cuts. I'm not familiar with them.

  • I've noticed that the Flash file for cut 6 has a glitch at the beginning. I know it's not an intentional stutter based on the full package demo and hearing it on air.

    (And yes, the players should also be updated to a different format ASAP.)

    Possibly the ONLY benefit to 3 months of quarantine is that we finally had time to design a new audio player that works on most major browsers, including mobile. We will be replacing all the cut-by-cut demo pages with this improved format as quickly as possible. They should all be converted in the next few days. For a preview of the future, take another look at LogoMax. Please report any perceived glitches. Thanks!

  • Welcome the advent of the new player Jon!
    :^)

  • Thanks Jon - FYI cuts 1-4 didn't load, but 5-8 did. Strange. Refreshed the page and then they all came up.

    Happy days :)

    A very different sound for this set - had I heard them cold and off the bat I would not have immediately guessed JAM.

    I like 'em.

  • Most of the packages have been converted to the new format.

    One issue to report: the players for Radio 1 Extras seem to be missing.

    Fixed. Thanks. Good catch.

  • Has the "Radio 1 Originals" possibly needed the upgrade as well?

    @ JAM / PAMS - RE: http://www.jingles.com/jam/radioids/MusicNow
    Cut #3: It says "MUSIC NOW (sono:) MUSIC NOW (sung:) ON RADIO 1"
    when it should be "MUSIC NOW (sung:) MUSIC NOW (sono:) ON RADIO 1".

    Cut #22: It says "STEREO MUSIC (sono:) RADIO 1 (sung:) WHERE YOU'LL ALWAYS HEAR A BETTER SOUND" when it should be "STEREO MUSIC (sung:) RADIO 1 (sono:) WHERE YOU'LL ALWAYS HEAR A BETTER SOUND".

    Yes, there are several pages that still need to be converted, as well as many packages which have never had cut-by-cut pages at all. So far we've changed 127 of them.

    No, the lyrics are correct. The items in parenthesis refer to what follows, which is why they end with a colon. In other words, our standard convention is that the descriptor comes before the lyric element, not after.
    Lyrics are always assumed to be sung unless noted differently. So, for example, the first "Music Now" in cut 3 is assumed to be sung, but the next "Music Now" is sono because of the modifier in front of it. Then we have to specify that we return to singing for the "on Radio 1".

    Thanks to all for the attention to detail.

    Now that has gone right over my head Jon...You might as well be speaking Latin! :smiley:

    Gotcha. You learn something new everyday :)
    Thanks.
