75th Years Of Radio in Canada.....and 70s Jeans...


1994 was the 75th anniversary of radio in Canada, initially started in 1919 by Ted Rogers, in what would eventually be CFCF in Montreal, radio with support from the railway, would eventually go coast to coast in a matter of a few years. Rogers is still one of the biggest media companies in Canada, with roots in TV, cell phones, and of course radio. They also own the Toronto Blue Jays (at least partially)

This jingle package was created for the event. Not sure if anyone used it on the air, but you could almost use it today. It's a nice tribute to the medium with a few other spots within the reel besides jingle also. enjoy

We step back to the 70s with this jingle from Levis. Known for their TV commericals in the 70s and 80s, you don't hear a lot of the radio spots from that era, so here's one.

Until Next Month.....

  1. Very clever "visual" audio on the Levis spot.

  2. The Voice of God voice on the Levis spot is that of none other than Mr. Ken Nordine. A one time on air personality in Chicago, who later became famous for his Dot Records "Word Jazz" series of spoken word classic Beat Generation vignettes. (I never could remember how to spell that word right) Still with us, check him out on youtube & his own web-site. One of the worlds greatest voices, as well as minds, & hearts.
