Dr. McBlade WPGC Jingle Montage, 1959 - 1980
A 14:00 medley of various cuts used on the station through the years.

1958

Year Package Name Length
1958 PAMS - Series 6 - Color Radio ?

PAMS Series #6 'Color Radio' had been created in 1957 for KJOE in Shreveport and WKDA in Nashville, though the term itself had been made popular by Chuck Blore at KFWB in LA. WPGC had adopted the TV-like phrase soon afterwards and used this package to reinforce the slogan of the station in 1958.

 

1959

Year Package Name Length
1959 PAMS Series 9 - Highlander ?

1959 saw PAMS release its Series #9, 'Highlander' package which featured long cuts. Though a number of stations around the country including the Bartel stations used the package, it was not a big seller for PAMS. One that did use it however, was WPGC.

1960

 

Year Package Name Length
1959 Futursonic - Pacemaker ?

Futursonic was formed when three employees at PAMS left to form their own company. Their first package in 1958, 'Pacemaker', was in use on WPGC in 1959. 18 cuts were produced for the demo which was distributed on 12" vinyl insted of tape.

Among those also using the package were WCAO in Baltimore, CHUM in Toronto and WGH in Norfolk. The latter is of interest because future WPGC Program Director, Dean Griffith #1 (Dean Anthony) had been playing jingles from Futursonic for some time at WGH before his arrival in Washington, perhaps explaining his ordering of the packages below.

Futursonic offered the package via barter to stations in exchange for airplay of commercials. PAMS had initiated the barter process earlier and sued Futursonic for one million dollars claiming barter of airtime for jingles was proprietary. A judge in Dallas however ruled against PAMS, citing herself as an example - she had bartered airtime in her re-election campaign that year!

1960 Futursonic - Time Chex 1:24
1960 Futursonic - Weather Cuts 1:51

 

Thanks to contributor Lee Whitney for the above two compilations, who writes:

Time Sings: The "Please What Time Is It" donut is probably Futursonic, but I have no idea what package. I've never heard it elsewhere. Too bad I cut out the open middle because the jock talked over it.

I'm pretty sure all the minute cuts are Futursonic "Time Chex" done in 1960. They were the lower priced competition for CRC's "The Singing Clock." These were professionally done, but were generic with no call letters and cuts only for every five minutes. CRC had undertaken the ludicrous task of customizing 720 jingles per station--one per minute for 12 hours (AM and PM shared the same cut).

Weather Cuts: "Weatherweatherweather" appeared on WPGC in 1960 - first the generic version then the "Big PG" version. "Here Comes the Weatherman" was old when Jerry G started using it - probably from 1958 or 59 when the station was the 'New WPGC'. They often in-cued it to "From the 1580 Weather Tower."

"Mr. Weatherman, What's The Weather Gonna Be?" is from PAMS Series 9. "Mr. Weatherman What's The Score" appeared about 1961. "Come In Mr. Weatherman" is older but I don't know how old. "Will it be warmer" was also heard on other stations, maybe WKBW / Buffalo. I would guess that all the jingles except the known PAMS cuts are Futursonic, but I don't know for sure.

 

1963

Special thanks to Good Guy, Harv Moore for the above.

 

Year Package Name Length
1963 PAMS - 'Washington My Home' song 4:08
Hear the scratchy vinyl 45 version above!

In the early '60's, PAMS had included cuts on it's Series #16 'Sound of the City' & Series #17 'New Frontier' packages that spotlighted mini-songs localized to each market, sung by a female soloist. The concept was refined further in 1963 when the full length, 'My Home Town' song was created as a stand alone cut with multiple singers. Custom lyrics for each city created the illusion a unique song had been written for the town listeners lived in.

The 'Washington, My Home' song (a.k.a., 'Ballad of Washington, D.C.') was commissioned by WPGC that year. Copies were pressed onto vinyl and given to staff members and possibly to listeners as well. Listen for the mention of WPGC towards the end of the four minute song. Special thanks to contributor, Lee Whitney who received the original PAMS tape in 1972 from JAM President, Jonathon Wolfert who worked at PAMS at the time and who rescued the only copy of it in existence from the trash can!

 

Year Package Name Length
1963 PAMS - Series 22 - Sono-Magic 1:25
1963 PAMS - Series 22 - Instrumentals 2:23

By 1963, simple electronic effects were being used in jingle packages. PAMS created a stir using the Sonovox technique, a means of deliberately distorting the human voice electronically to great effect. So much so, that an entire package was built around it. Such was Series #22 'Sono-Magic' which Program Director, Dean Griffith #1 (Dean Anthony) ordered that year.

Also included in the collection were the instrumental tracks used in the creation of the final product. Those music-only cuts are also featured here and illustrate just how attention getting the Sonovox effect was, at least by 1963 standards.

 

 

Year Package Name Length
1963 PAMS - Series 24 - His & Her Radio :45

PAMS released so many packages in such quick sequence it's hard to keep track of all of them even today, much less at the time. Policing which station had actually bought which package was a difficult proposition at best, particularly since many stations opted to legitimately purchase some packages but 'borrow' other cuts from other packages that they hadn't. The telltale clue - no call letters!

Listen to these cuts from Series #24 'His & Her Radio' that contain no mention of WPGC but plenty of references to 'Good Guys Radio'. Their origin was another station somewhere which also used the 'Good Guys' slogan. A sharp razor blade in the production room worked wonders - instant jingles without the bother of actually having to order them!

The practice was widespread in the industry. Even if caught in the act, it's questionable whether PAMS would have enforced prohibiting their use, fearing a station might not order future packages from them. Case in point, in 1963-64 alone, WPGC bought the 'Washington, My Home' song as well as Series #22, #25, and #27. What's a little stealing amongst friends?!

In the middle of this montage taped off the air on WPGC, listen for Bob Raleigh #1 (Rolle Ferreira) talk over a jingle donut. He would leave for WWDC the following year.

1963 PAMS - Series 25 - The Happy Difference :17

PAMS output was in high gear in 1963. By the end of the year, a memorable package featuring twin 8 year old girls was offered. The girls were relatives of one of the actual jingle singers at PAMS. While the novelty of children singing station jingles wore off quickly, there was no denying how cuts in Series #25 'The Happy Difference' commanded attention.

 

1964

 

Year Package Name Length
1964 PAMS - Series 26D - Beatles :23

Beatlemania took over the nation's airwaves early in 1964 and reached epic proportions with their first concert in America at the DC Coliseum. Hysteria was equally as great in New York for their Ed Sullivan Show appearances. PAMS was quick to assemble a package of Beatles sound-alike jingles, so much so, they appeared as an addendum to Series 26 'Let's Go America' rather than a package unto itself.

The audio heard here is a crude recording off the air made with a microphone placed in front of a radio speaker from 09/08/64. On it, 'Marvelous Marv' Brooks can be heard playing a cut that sound suspiciously like it may have been a home grown affair with someone at the station having sung the WPGC call letters over another station's at the end!

 

 

Year Package Name Length
1964 PAMS - Series 27 - The Jet Set 8:04

Just as 1964 marked a distinct change in direction musically with the arrival of The Beatles, so too was the case with PAMS jingles. Work on Series #27 'The Jet Set' began in November, 1963. Recording sessions for the pilot package for WABC were underway the day of the tragic JFK assassination.

It's fresh new sound featured sound effects of among other things, a sports car, a motorboat and of course, a jet plane! It quickly became PAMS most successful offering up to then. Demand was great; countless stations in cities all over America used these jingles including WPGC in 1964 which Program Director, Dean Griffith #1 (Dean Anthony) ordered before his departure in November of that year for WMCA in New York.

 

1965

 

Year Package Name Length
1965 Gwinsound - Series #5 ?

Gwinsound was one of the smaller jingle production companies that specialized in lower cost projects than a big-name outfit like PAMS. Series #5 was created for KSEL in Lubbock in 1965 and was similar in style to PAMS Series #27, 'The Jet Set' and Series #29, 'Go-Go' featuring brass arrangements with high notes sung by a female singer.

It is believed WPGC may have used this package in 1965 and were ordered by General Manager, Bob Howard. Cost may have been a factor in the selection of these over the current offerings from PAMS or, it may have been made out of necessity as WEAM was using PAMS Series #29 at the time.

 

1966

Year Package Name Length
1966 Mark-Century - The Young Americans 1:28

Program Director, 'Cousin' Warren Duffy ordered these jingles upon his arrival in in the Fall of 1966. This stripped down package simply didn't compare to other more polished offerings out at the same time from other competitors. Their use on the air was mercifully brief!

 

 

Year Package Name Length
1966 SPOT - Thatman 1:00


In February, 1966, the enormous Bat-craze was sweeping the nation. SPOT Productions' thinly disguised rip off , 'Thatman' was based on the theme from the show and featured the names of the DJs on the station. Program Director, 'Cousin' Warren Duffy also ordered the the Bat - package.

 

Year Package Name Length
1966 SPOT - Fun-tastic 7:50
1966 SPOT - Fun-tastic - Additional Cuts 2:20

In April of 1966, SPOT Productions created, 'Fun-tastic'. Intended to capitalize on the notion of Summer fun for teens out of school, additional cuts to the lengthy package were added soon afterwards. Fun-lovin' 'Cousin' Duffy put these on the air that year too.

Thanks to contributor Lee Whitney for the above three packages.

 

1968

 

Year Package Name Length
1968 Pepper-Tanner - The Now Sound 1:14

The arrival of a new Program Director invariably meant new jingles on WPGC. Such was the case with Charlie Shoe who ordered the high powered (& loud!) 'The Now Sound' from Pepper-Tanner. The arrangements on these cuts were distinctly different from the typical big band PAMS cuts from earlier in the decade and featured a noticeably more youthful singing group.

 

1969

 

Year Package Name Length
1969 Pepper-Tanner - Fun One :41

More fun from Pepper-Tanner with the aptly titled, 'Fun One' heard on WPGC in 1969. It was essentially a continuation of the previous package from the year before. Truly, in-your-face and in-your-ears jingles at their best!

 

Year Package Name Length
1969 PAMS - Grid 8:26

Late in 1968, PAMS introduced what was considered at the time a revolutionary concept - a means by which basic jingle beds could be created for use by any station, yet still customized for each one individually by the incorporation of that station's musical logo at the front or end.

This was accomplished with an early multi-track reel to reel tape machine. Unique musical station logos were added on separate tracks apart from the basic jingle beds. PAMS called the concept 'Grid'. WPGC was one of many stations to use the package in 1969.

 

 

Year Package Name Length
1969 PAMS - Series #38 - New Generation 6:12

As the '70's were about to dawn, new sounds were being heard in station jingles. PAMS Series #38, 'New Generation' was notable for the inclusion of a Moog synthesizer. A new, younger group of singers was also used to make this set stand apart from the competition as well as previous PAMS packages. WPGC Program Director, Charlie Shoe ordered both of these packages in 1969.

 

1972

1972 PAMS - Series 42a - The Ignitors (Auditions) :42
1972 PAMS - Series 42a - The Ignitors (Originals) 2:49
1972 PAMS - Series 42a - The Ignitors (Rehearsal) 1:12
1972 PAMS - Series 42a - The Ignitors (Re-sings) 3:01
Hear the difference between the originals and the re-sings.

Over the years, PAMS created more custom jingle packages for WABC than any other station. These in turn were soon syndicated to stations around the country. Late in 1971, PAMS started work on Series #42a 'The Ignitors' which WPGC put on the air in 1972. Rather than a collection of unrelated cuts, the package was an early attempt at accentuating the flow between the songs by use of 'subliminal logo triggers'. The latest in electronic gimmicktry such as phasing and flanging effects highlighted the series. Included in the sales pitch to stations was the claim, 'Ignite your listeners' consciousness with exciting trigger pads'.

The first cut above is a series of five demonstation jingles of what it would sound like if WPGC ordered them. These cuts used a variety of station logos on them (WABC and KLIF / Dallas to name a couple). When WPGC did order them, it's own logo was used instead.

Program Director, Harv Moore selected the package but was dismayed if not 'ignited' with the result, leading to the jingles being re-sung in Dallas soon after their creation. Both the originals and re-sings are included here for comparison. Harv himself attended the do-over session. A rare, behind-the-scenes glimpse at the creative process of making jingles from inside the studio is also provided with a minute or so of the rehearsal just prior the re-sings. Listen towards the end when one of the female singers can be heard speaking with Harv.

Harv Moore writes:

I can't remember what station I heard that had the "full harmony" sound on the call letters, but I loved it. I'm a "song" guy. When Bob Howard gave the OK for new jingles, I knew exactly what I wanted. We ordered the PAMS package, and I sent a sample of the way I wanted it. They didn't do it. They suggested I come to Dallas to supervise the re-sings.

 

1974

 

Year Package Name Length
1974 AIR - Drake Double A Image Pack (originals) :24
Oct. 1974 AIR - Drake Double A Image Pack (re-sings) :
Hear the difference between the originals and the re-sings.

In 1971, legendary programmer Bill Drake commissioned a new set of jingles utilizing the Johnny Mann singers. Instrumental backing tracks were done in Detroit using the Motown session musicians who had appeared on countless hits. The set was marketed by Drake-Chenault's, 'American Independent Radio' ('AIR') division.

The package was re-cut with new vocals in 1973 at PAMS of Dallas but retained the original backing instrumentation. Program Director, Harv Moore was never fully satisfied with the results of Series #42a and ordered this package in 1974. It was the last one he bought before leaving for WYSL in Buffalo early in 1975.

 

1975

1975 was marked by several 'tide-us-over-till-we-get-a-new-package' jingles.

Year Package Name Length
1975 PAMS - 'LS Auditions :12

Early in 1975, a collection of new jingles appeared on WPGC to replace the Drake cuts above. Program Director, Jim Collins (for whom this site is dedicated) bought these cuts from PAMS which originated in a custom package created for WLS in Chicago, appropriately named, 'LS Auditions'. The jingles on it were short, quick and to the point. Streamlined by design to get back into music quickly.

 

Year Package Name Length
1975 PAMS - Series #42a? - Additional Cuts :
Hear the original and alternate-version 'Musicradio' musical logos.

Soon afterwards, several similar sounding shotgun jingles were also purchased. Ostensibly, they were additional cuts from PAMS Series #42a from three years earlier. The nine cuts on it featured the station's 'Musicradio' slogan but clearly sounded completely different than anything contained on Series #42a. It seems unlikely they were actually from that package.

The first four of these used the familiar 'Musicradio' musical logo. But the latter five are of particular interest because they feature a different arrangement on that same phrase and evidently were never used on the air.

 

Year Package Name Length
1975 PAMS - Series 47 - Music & More :05
Hear a station-made hybrid cut of the above two packages from Nov. 1975

Two cuts from a package originally created for WGAR in Cleveland were the last to be ordered by WPGC from PAMS, which by the mid '70's faced economic hardships that ultimately led to its demise in 1977 (though in later years, re-sings of many of the classic PAMS packages would be heard on numerous Oldies stations around the country, most notably at 66 WNBC in New York during its re-creation of WABC's '60's sound as the 'Time Machine' in the mid-80's, when ironically, Jim Collins worked on the air there).

 

1976

 
Year Package Name Length
April 1976 JAM - Logoset / Priority One 3:17

'Logoset / Priority One' cut in April, 1976 was a compilation and the first JAM package used on WPGC. It was ordered by Program Director, Jim Collins.

'Priority One' was originally produced in 1975 for WDIA in Memphis while 'Logoset' was the first JAM custom package cut that same year for WABC.

For a while, JAM utilized an actual WPGC aircheck of Jim Collins to demonstrate to other stations how they sounded in use on the air.

 

1978

 
Year Package Name Length
1978 JAM - Positron 3:06

'Positron' was a custom package for WABC in 1977 and went on to become one of the most widely syndicated packages in JAM's history. Program Director, Dan Mason ordered it for WPGC in early 1978.

1978 JAM - Positron - Additional DJ cuts :

When Scott Carpenter and Ed McNeil joined the station in the Spring of 1978 these DJ cuts were added.

1978 JAM - Express Pack (Demo) :25

'Express Pack' was another JAM collection from 1978, obstensibly for WQXI in Atlanta. The demo heard here also included cuts for WPGC, possibly in the hope the station might order the complete package. It didn't, perhaps because 'Positron' was so new on the station at the time.

1979

 
Year Package Name Length
Aug. 1979 JAM - Specialty Cuts 2:28

'Specialty Cuts' from August, 1979 were actually from 'Express Pack' (cut 11A for those keeping track at home) intended for specific usage such as morning show features like 'Day Off With Pay' and 'Boss Of The Day' and were ordered by Program Director, Scott Shannon.

Also included on this brief package was the widespread Hallelujah Choir's treatment of Elliott & Woodside, including deliberate outtakes on the latter's name.

 

 

 
Year Package Name Length
Dec. 1979 JAM - Christmas Kit 2:40

'Christmas Kit' from December, 1979 was actually cut for WABC in December, 1977 and was JAM's first holiday package. The cuts were ordered by 'Santa Shannon' and were used extensively during WPGC's annual '24 Hours of Christmas' special each year.

 

1980

Jan. 1980 JAM - Congressman Cottonpicker for Pres.! :

Capitalizing (if not 'capitolizing') on an election year, listen for an encore of the the Hallelujah Choir's treatment of 'Congressman Cottonpicker for President' that were cut in January, 1980.

 

Year Package Name Length
Feb. 1980 JAM - Congressman Cottonpicker (re-sings) :

The re-sings in February, 1980 merely placed the accent on a different syllable of the good Congressman's cottonpickin' name.

 

Year Package Name Length
June 1980 JAM - Whisper Chants :25

As the more-music battle with Q107 heated up, 'Whisper Chants' from June of 1980 debuted on WPGC and were used as quick drop-ins between songs to identify the station without interrupting the flow of the music.


Year Package Name Length
Sept. 1980 JAM - The Music Sounds Best :18

As Disco gasped it's last dying breath in 1980, 'The Music Sounds Best' was ordered by Program Director, Scott Shannon. As a stand alone cut, it may very well have been part of another JAM package out at the same time.

 

Year Package Name Length
Oct. 1980 JAM - Free Money Hi-Lo Chant :

Major image-building contesting with the station promotion, 'Free Money Hi-Lo' in the Fall of 1980 warranted a group chant from JAM in October of that year.

 

1981

Year Package Name Length
Feb. 1981 JAM - Continuous Music Chants :

In the race with Q107 to see who could play the most music, these cuts from February, 1981 could be laid over the intros of songs without stopping the music and included a chant used in the middle of '30 Minute Music Sweeps'. Hence the name, 'Continuous Music Chants'!

Year Package Name Length
Feb. 1981 JAM - Elliott & Woodside Starts DC's AM :

This cut replaced the nearly identical 'Jim Elliott Starts Washington's Morning' cut originally in 'Positron' to reflect the equal billing of the morning team. Within a year, Elliott & Woodside would depart for big bucks & big disappointment at Q107.

07/30/81 TM - Radio Express (re-do) 4:33
Hear the minor difference between the two.

'Radio Express' was ordered by Program Director, Steve Kingston in July of 1981 and was used through the Summer of 1982. It was re-done less than a month later with a minor change in the cadence of the call letters from the original three beat 'P-G-C' to a two beat 'PG-C'. The package was used again briefly in 1983 after 'Double Plus' but before '95 PGC' below was ordered in 1984. Visit the TM / Century site.

Thanks to Tracy Carman & the Media Preservation Society for the above.

 

1982

Jan. 1982 JAM - Foxx & Theismann Shouts :06

'Foxx & Theismann Shouts' debuted in early 1982 when Elliott & Woodside bolted for Q107.

Aug. 1982 JAM - Double Plus 5:03


'Double Plus', originally created for WYNY in New York premiered on WPGC in the fall of 1982 and coincided with the change in format. Sadly, it was to be the last complete package ever ordered from JAM.

 

Year Package Name Length
Nov. 1982 JAM - Walker & Howe Shout :04
 

The 'Walker & Howe Shout' replaced the 'Foxx & Theismann Shouts' late in 1982 when Dude Walker & J. Robert Howe succeeded Dave Foxx & Joe Theismann in mornings.

 

1984

Year Package Name Length
1984 The Jingle Machine - 95 PGC :17
 

In 1984, Program Director, Al Casey wanted to get some new jingles. With the station in the ratings toilet and revenues to match, there was very little funding available for a package from any of the major jingle production companies.

He opted instead to have a series cut locally at a recording studio in Rockville on Kenilworth Avenue where commercials were often created, but jingles for radio stations were not. The resulting package from 'The Jingle Machine' called '95 PGC' was okay for a home grown affair but hardly the same quality of the illustrious packages from Dallas that had graced the station's airwaves for decades before.

Name That Jingle Package!

It's often difficult to determine which jingle package was in use from any given aircheck because of isolated cuts from previous packages still being in use at the time. Below is a rough approximation of the most likely scenarios for the time period indicated.

 

1965 Jingle Montage (1:25)

Many of these jingles used early in 1965 are most likely from
© PAMS Series 27 'The Jet Set' from 1964, although numerous cuts from earlier packages were still in use. For example, those featuring two young girls singing alone are from © PAMS Series 25 - 'The Happy Difference' - (See above).
 

 

1968 Jingle Montage (:33)

As was typical in the heavily jingle driven Top 40 era, numerous cuts from previous packages were still heard when a new package arrived at the station. Cuts at the end of this montage are from Pepper-Tanner's 'The Now Sound' in 1968 (See above).

 

1971 Jingle Montage (:22)

Case in point, the first few cuts here in use from 1971 were actually from the package above from three years earlier. The ID cuts at the end were not however.
