60s Radio Jingles

Radio Jingles have changed quite a lot over the years, nowadays all you get is the station indent repeated over and over by voices that range from a Barry White sound alike to a small choir boy on helium.

But in the 60s and 70s you got a full American Barber shop quartet singing the introduction to the weather report in what now sounds quite kitsch. The only thing that ever came close to those over the top produced jingles from the past were the home made ones by Kenny Everett. I have some of those on tape somewhere as well and if i get chance to transfer them over onto MP3 i'll bore you all with them.

I have no idea where this record came from (honest) or why I have it in my collection, but these classic jingles crack me up.
They remind me of Radio One, Radio Caroline, Radio Luxembourg, and many other 60`s and 70`s radio stations of this era
Favourite of the bunch “Drive carefully, ‘cause we love you”
Bring back jingles like this, that’s what I say, they jolt as many memories as the records played between them.

Thank you for sharing, that's precious! It is really nice to hear the old stuff, so much more radiolike, so much more... real!

Thanks
I think it sounded more like the records they played in those days.
You don't hear many Rap jingles do you ?.

True. The 60’s radio jingles were different. Agree. “Bring back jingles like this, that’s what I say, they jolt as many memories as the records played between them.

60's & 70's jingles are the best. People still recall them and now the need is to revive these jingles production again and i am sure they will surely get popular among the people and will help a lot to promote business campaigns.
