Not skatin around the issue...been busy.

With me, it can be feast or famine sometimes. Too much stuff I want to do, or too little....in the last few months it's been too much. My internet stream acquired a new to me 12 channel audio console from a commerical radio station last year. so after the months of prep to set it up, the install came at the end of march, and time tweaking things since. Things are finally calming down to get the jetsam back on track again.







Speaking of skating (wow....how well did I plan that one!) did you ever go see or did the Ice Capcades every appear in your town? It was usually a big deal when they did. I never did see them myself, but certainly knew it when they came to town, as radio and TV got the ad blitz to promote them. It was so intense, it was almost like aliens were here to meet the leaders (chances are they'd be disappointed if they actually did meet the leaders if social media complaining is any indication) but then you KNEW the Ice Capades were HERE! so it was effective.


Wikipedia says that ran over 50 years, starting in 1940, until about 1991 and then called Dorothy Hamill international from 1993-1995, which isn't really as a catchy name, so maybe that's why they closed down, who knows.

The ET posting for this month's exhibit is a diac a lot of stations got for the 1976-77 year of the Ice Capades, featuring Karen Magnussen for that season it seems. The wiki on Karen is HERE She certainly has some impressive credentials.

I've also included the script for the live tags for the "west" version of the spots, as is came with the disc. the odd thing is, the is no copy on the actual scripts that goes with this jingle. Just other versions. Maybe the rest of the discs got lost, who knows. It's about a 15 second ending so, there's one :15 sec copy you can probably use if you want to create your own vintage ad.

It was 30 years ago this month.........

...that you found these US radio ads airing nationally on the air.



It's been too long since I pulled more US jingles from my collection of "Dick Clark's Rock, Roll and Remember" shows. almost 5 years in fact....I said I was going to do it more....guess I didn't. Let's do it now shall we?

Here are 6 spots, with various degrees of "jingle" associated with them....from full sings to donuts with announcer, but still a fun look at the 80s nostalgia that is often forgotten about. One actually has a "before his career took off 90s artist". Well, we think anyway.

FINALLY.....

After some time spent on the older posts, I can now say that all the exhibits from the start to the latest posting are HMTL 5 friendly, which means no automatic playing of audio once you land on the page. I say this as to the best of my knowledge. If you find one of the pages still playing the audio when you land on it, let me know. I like to get it right, but the work being tedious, it's easy to miss things.


Enjoy!

some tanner.......some wine.........oh so fine.......then a little coffee to recover from it.....

I'm lacking in creative titles for this month's exhibit. Let's leave it at that I guess.


A bit of a different take to start off 2018, with some commericals/spots from a pair of 1960s "ET's" which are electrical transcriptions. That term dates back to the 1930s when the failed experiment for putting sound to film evolved into the 16 inch radio transcription which was in the pre tape era of radio recording. the electrical in the term refers to the use of electrical record equipment used from about the mid 1920s on to record and make records. The previous way had a singer sing loud into a big horn, or likewise for a orchestra, they had to play loud. that was called "acoustic"

By the 1960s though, the term was a bit outdated. The LP was well known (the 12" version of the transcription, with "microgroove" grooves as they called them for a period of time) and often agencies would press their commericals onto vinyl because the sound was felt to be better to play off a record on the air then the fairly new broadcast cartridge tape format (grandfather of the 8 track!)

Eventually, the broadcast cart won out and was widely used until computer automation took over in the 1990s, commericals from the mid 1970s on where primarily tape (as proven here in the jetsam with pics of the tape boxes) but thankfully, we have some of these commericals because of the ET aspect of it. Here's two of them for you. Not all of these are jingles, in fact there are no full sings here, but still some neat nostalgia to serve up.

Also this month, our contributor Sammy brings me TTS 3004 to post this month, after talking about it briefly last month. It's dated like all of the jingles of this sort, but there's still a charm about it. Now we just need some campy ad copy to go with it and y'all be all set YEE HAH!

Tis the season for Giving!!!!!!!!.....LOTS of Christmas Jingles after all.......

You get Christmas Jingles and YOU get Christmas jingles....and...well, you get the idea....

I feel like freakin Oprah on one of her favorite Things shows....except we don't have to worry about Oprah not paying the taxes for the stuff here.....I PAY the taxes.....but there isn't any, which is why I pay the taxes!!!!


I wish I could totally take the credit for play the jingle santa, but I share it and actually pass the credit really to Sammy Reed. After I said, you know i'm pretty much tapped out, what do you have around?, next thing I know I get a massive file with over and HOUR (yes an HOUR) of a variety of "off the rack" stuff you usually find here. The quality varies, but given the rarity of this stuff, It's fun to actually hear it.







There's SOOOOOOOO much material here, that Sammy did up a list and checked it twice (i'm assuming!) and I split the massive file into 2 parts to make it easier to download. The list speaks for itself. I can't say much more then that, so I won't.


Here is THE LIST (right click to save)

The Tanner 3000 Series...IN STEREO! WHOH!

We have contributor Sammy Reed bringing you the existing sounds of the Tanner 3000 series this time around. This is good, as I don't have these, and the times I came across a Tanner disc that said it was "In Stereo" it wasn't...strange really. Nevertheless, these are campy like a lot of the other ones.

Sammy Writes:

This is the first record of the Tanner Total Sound Library, which later became New TTS.

A short, incomplete history lesson about the 30xx category ("Business Commercials", later "Specific Businesses"): At first, they devoted a whole side to jingles for one type of business (Side 1, autos, side 2, banks). 3004 is entirely farm equipment, with a "hick" music style (I think that's gonna be the next one I want to send). It was in 3005 - after the 1st 3 jingles which were all for drug stores - when the jingles started being for different things.



Let's hope we can get some more here......especially 3004.....YES, send that one my way soon....YEE HAW!!!!...OK, wait a minute, I suppose we should do in it order if we are going to. I can wait if I have to.


As for me, i'll see if I can get something out Christmas related before Christmas, but the reality is, i'm tapped out, short of just Christmas production music beds from some of the libraries I have. No real jingles to the point where there's a whole album or even a side really. I think I have a disc of combination which includes 1 or 2 christmas, end of year, January stuff, so that's likely as close as i'll get to anything like I have posted in the past, but we'll give that a try.

In the meantime, enjoy disc 3001 from the Tanner Library.

Delivered...in an Instant! and a new contributor! We're starting to hit the big time! YAY!

Some time ago I believe someone posted in the comments asking me if I had any of the Tanner Instant Service Discs.....I said I didn't....

Until Now!!!


Funny enough, about a month ago, I came across one in a thrift store for $1. I bet no one else knew what the hell it was. Serendipity is a fun thing when it happens. it occasionally does with me. It's seen better days, and a little NR software cleaning certainly helped, but it's not perfect, it's just....right!

Campy as hell (I still can't believe stations would pay for this stuff) and in all it's aural glory, we bring you a Tanner Instant Service disc.

Sammy Reed, a watcher of this humble blog, wrote to me back in September with a relevant submission to the Jetsam Cause. he writes:

" I don't know if you have Creative Sales Service 5311, but I'd like to submit mp3's and label scans from my copy to the Jetsam if you don't have it. This has orchestrated news themes using the same 4-note motif as side 2 of 5321, which you have here. As I say in the comment I just put up, the "School / Teen News Intro" has to be heard to be believed - and you probably still won't. Please let me know what you think."

Well, his pics and audio are below.....let him know what you think in the comments below.

Happy Listening to all the jingles in your head!

More Campy Tanner foolishness......

Recently, I got an email.....

"I am intrigued by the Pepper Tanner production library cuts that you
share on the blog. Do you have any of the discs featuring singing
one-liners for station jingles or advertisers? I also am interested
in the discs featuring program sounders and themes from the Pepper
Tanner era. Man, I wished I would have made copies of them when I
had the chance!"



(yeah, it looks like William Shatner wrote it, but it's just the way it shows up on this page...can't fix it!)

Well, i'm not one on requests, mainly because I get people saying "do you have this jingle?" or "do you have that jingle?" The answer usually is no, because if you haven't easily found it anywhere else, I am likely not to have it (though I have been wrong on that occasionally)

This is a different story though. It's material I already have.

I went through some of the Tanner LP's this month and found something that might full both requests. Accapellas for various station features....weather...sports, that sorta thing, and generic sings for advertisers. I will search more in the future to see what I can find, but here's a start.

By the way this collection was given to me by a ex radio station employee who thought i'd might like them, as he saved them headed for the trash some years ago, and I thought i'd put a few up for the hell of it, as they are jingles and technically jetsam as they were tossed.

Who knew I was going to start something. I guess now, you have a second chance to get a few things :)


Enjoy!


PS-as I wanted to use the accapella jingles myself, I edited them down and labelled them individually into a zip file if you prefer to download them that way. They're campy as hell, but if you have a use for them, enjoy the nostalgia.
