Hobart Tasmania Jingle

edited November 2006 in Downloads & Audio
Hi All;

A bit of a long shot this one but maybe someone out there can help. Does anyone remember hearing a looooooooonnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggg (and very overblown!) jingle proclaiming the wonderful sights / sounds / features of Hobart, Tasmania? I know that Danny Baker used to peridically play this on his BBC London (GLR) radio show, but I've not been able to track it down.

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks !!

    You sure it was Danny Baker? My memory says it was Chris Tarrant on Capital ...
  • I first heard the Hobart jingle on Radio 2`s Kenny Everett show.

  • I remember Chris Tarrant on Capital Breakfast playing that jingle all the time too.
  • For those with the EAP's long lost tape "World Of Medium Wave Radio Stations", it's on there !

    It's something like the begining of side 2 on the tape - but don't quote me on it ..

    A definite blast from the past, I`ve got the LP vinyl record of World of Medium Wave radio stations, great LP cover it is too with lots of station stickers on the front cover and studio/dj photos on the inside.

    Hi there, thanks for the reponse. Chris Tarrant probably did play this - it is certainly the type of thing he did feature. I definitely remember Danny Baker playing it as well, but then if Kenny Everett also played the jingle, it's clearly done the rounds already!

    Thanks everyone, Pete
  • there's a site called vintage broadcasting :

    it's on their capital sound clips page , they have a few radio 1 jingles on there too
  • I too have been looking for this for a long time. The links in the above post seem no longer to work. However, I have now found it on YouTube by searching for 7HO. My recollection was that it was Chris Tarrant who played it, but Danny Baker may have done so as well. However, whilst you may have been amused by Hobart having such a hick jingle, you can't blame it on the Tassies. Here's an earlier version from Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. But it seems this one is the original from Regina, Saskatchewan Canada in 1964 for CKCK-TV Regina. I also found this movie Wonderful Town (1958) Rosalind Russell - Kinescope. I haven't listened to it all but from a quick sampling I don't think the movie gets the blame for creating the song, and even if it did, back in 1958 this would be sophisticated!
  • Here's another version, this time for WEMP, Milwaukee...
  • WLTN, Littleton, New Hampshire...

  • WLBR Lebanon, PA...
  • WSHO, New Orleans, Louisiana...
  • WWCO, Waterbury, Connecticut....
  • 3DB, Melbourne, Victoria...
  • Somebody say Hobart ?!?!
    :)
  • Great stuff, Iain--just out of curiosity the jingle @ 0:25--what Series is that jingle from?
  • Neil, at 0:25 its PAMS Series34-A cut 12, from the tape I scrounged out of 7HO away back in 1972!
    :)

  • Thanks Iain--great sounding cut!...:)
  • Neil, with PAMS 34 being three packages per se, with some cuts common and others not, seems quite a few of the
    Series 32/33/34 or similar PAMS "composites" back then would never quite use "all the cuts".
    Certainly on some of the tapes I scrounged from stations away back there were a lot of 32/33 34-A-B-C "combos".

    Maybe a Sunday topic for Jon some time to delve into the world of mid/late 1960s PAMS selections?
    :)

    Or even a "Jingles yesterday" thread on JM?

    I will definitely try to "pitch the question" to Jon...
