KGO-AM, San Francisco "NewsTalk Radio 81" Jingles (1983-1992)

One more for today. I've got more waiting in the wings...

These were custom for KGO-AM, San Francisco in 1983. I wished I remembered the production company when I had the master in my hands, but it's been 20 years. What I do remember, is that they were in California, and not a radio jingle company. These were dubbed from the master reel to DAT, then to CD.

Not nearly as fancy as the KCBS jingles of the same era, but still a bold news open in cut 1.

Here's a cut list:

1. News Hour Open
2. Headlines
3. Traffic
4. Business
5. Talk Hour Close (Instrumental to Vocal Tag) ... KGO NEWSTALK RADIO 81
6. Talk Hour Open
7. Talk Song (Instrumental to Vocal Tag) ... KGO NEWSTALK RADIO 81
8. Sports
9. Cal Bears Football
10. Morning Zoo w/sfx
11. Morning Zoo
12. Promo Bed 1
13. Promo Bed 2 (Dr. Dean Edell)
14. Holiday

Short Vocal IDs:

15. Fast: KGO NEWSTALK RADIO 81
16. Fast: (acapella) KGO NEWSTALK RADIO 81
17. Slow: KGO NEWSTALK RADIO, NEWSTALK RADIO 81.
18. Slow: (acapella) KGO NEWSTALK RADIO, NEWSTALK RADIO 81.
19. Medium: KGO NEWSTALK RADIO 81.

  • Alex D, do you remember me? Joe C in NYC. We traded many moons ago. R U still in Seattle?
  • Hey Joe, of course! I think you already have most of the stuff I'm posting. Just thought I'd share it on here as well. Yep, still Seattle. Far away from jingles and radio, though.
  • I thought KGO was using Jam sometime in that era.
  • Alex, thanx for these jingle postings. Right, I already have them but you save me the trouble of converting them to mp3. Most enjoyable to hear them again.

  • If I recall these KGO's are by Music Source, a Mike Berlin creation, prior to Reel World.

  • Music Source was the package after this one. These were done in Southern California somewhere.

    I goofed on start year. Should be 1985.
  • Here's KGO's The Music Source jingles.
