Khj 93 am boss radio

Author Roger Wilco ( ago)
What a racket! One basic catchy no-brainer jingle with donut. Same thing
used by PAMS. You will not see the singers of these jinglalos getting
residuals or driving pink Cadillacs. I know my truthful comments exposing
this scam will never be posted. But I did so anyway.

Had to be Thurl. He worked often with Johnny Mann. He did TONS of work for
Disneyland and Disney World. Live hosting all summer for the Laguna Beach
Pageant of the Masters. I was privileged to sit in the booth with him one
night, then a personal tour backstage during intermission. And TONY THE
TIGER was classic Thurl. What a kind and wonderful and gentle and talented
man. (After his passing, the North American voice of Tony is performed by
LA radio and wrestling announcer Lee Marshall.)

WIBG-Philadelphia, The Big 99, was a FAKE-Drake station. It was owned by
Storer Broadcasting in Miami, and not by RKO-General, as were the other
Drake stations. WIBG was programmed by Paul Drew, Drake's national Program
Director, in his capacity as an independent consultant.

I think 'Boss Radio' would work even today. but if you're too young to
remember when it ruled the AM dial back in the late 1960s and early '70s,
google "The Nine Tape" and you get a pretty good idea of how bad
small-market radio sounded back in the early and middle l960s. Boss Radio
just eliminated all the useless clutter and streamlined the top 40 format.

Being that it's the Johnny Mann singers on these tracks, is it safe to
assume that's Thurl ("Tony the Tiger") Ravenscroft as the bass voice in the
chorus?

A middle KHJ jingle (legal ID/Los Angeles) isn't Drake, it's the TM You
campaign by Dick Hamilton. The rest are, tho... .

Author GREG GOLDEN ( ago)
Love this stuff. Most of the jingles are good quality. When I used to
collect this stuff in the 1960's, I could only get AM airchecks, never very
good. Thanks for the collection.

I listened to KHJ when I was last in Los Angeles back in 1983. It's a
pretty good station.

I was a DJ at WJIM in Lansing, MI. while at MSU on the weekends. Our
jingles were similar but not quite the Drake jingles. I did try to emulate
the Big 8 (CKLW, the Motor City) jocks as closely as possible. We had the
Sound Power survey (I don't know if anyone else used it or not) and after
the news at 5 minutes after the top of the hour the jingle would say, "DJ's
name, WJIM plays power sound and it would countdown 10,9,8,7,6,5,5,5" and
you would play the no.5 song of the week. Grew up w/Big 8.

@Glinkaism1 The Drake jingles were recorded by The Johnny Mann Singers. I
believe at RCA studios in LA.

WOR-FM,,NEW YORK!

Author Loren Mike Lundy ( ago)
CHICENMAN was certainly not created at CKLW. "The Big 8" may have leased
CHICKENMAN from creator Dick Orkin at WCFL. His "Famous Radio Ranch" is now
in the Sherman Oaks area of the City of Los Angeles. Orkin is still going
strong, according to last reports, and he deserves the credit--along with
several others--for creating and producing CHICKENMAN at WCFL.

OMG, I love your post. These jingles remind me of the Hi-Lo's style. I love
the way that they tone it down, when singing the name of the city.

Noted, having known Dave Diamond (KFRC, KBLA) and Barry Shane (Salberg) of
KSTN

Author Ken Fisher ( ago)
Love the Drake jingles, however I do take issue with KSTN being labeled an
imitator. In reality, Boss Radio and the Bill Drake genius was given birth
@ KSTN Stockton. A real imitator (and a poor one) was KAFY Bakersfield.
They had the jings and not much else. There was no true understanding of
the Boss Radio format. I worked for both. Bakersfield is where the "whole
world would agree, I was no Dave Diamond, and never would I be".

KCMO FM was kinda doing a drake-style jingle clone at once!

Author Tyrone Thompson ( ago)
one more drake station, WMEE 1380 fort wayne, in.

Author pinchas barry goldstein ( ago)
cklw at 3.12 was the best detroit/ windsor/cleveland/toledo

Author Tyrone Thompson (1527 years ago)
that KSTN was 2005, also used a combination of the CKLW top of hour
fanfare, and then, after "and the hits just keep on comin," used a jingle
made by Gwinsound, also used for WTRY

Author biggfred999 ( ago)
WIBG was not Drake Chenault. It was a clone, consulted by Paul Drew, an
ex-employee of Drake's. There were many other clones out there as well.
Also, by the late 60's, just about any radio station could buy the jingle
package.

Grew up listening to the "Lucky 13" as a kid...and later worked there in
the mid 70's...

Author juan bptoe ( ago)
I got a chance to work at 13/KYNO back in the early 70's...which was great,
cause I grew up listening to the "Lucky 13" as a kid...Got a chance to work
with Mike Novack, John Berry, Kris Van Kamp and Danny Romero...also worked
for the rival station, KMAK...those were the days...

boss radio forever!

What a thrill to hear the KAKC jingle! Wow. Thanks.

Author ChuckJPC ( ago)
Bill Drake passed away Nov 30, 2008.

Author nanlisa ( ago)
I definitely remember CKLW. I used to pick it up at night right here in
Philly. WIBG went off the air in 1977. It then became WZZD, which first
featured the top songs of that day (the late 1970's), and it then switched
to religious programming in 1980. It is now WNPT with Dennis Prager, Laura
Ingram, and Rush Limbaugh. Besides WFIL, I used to listen to WIBG as well.
We used to have WIBG on the school bus every morning.

Thanks for the KAKC jingles, I listened to them in 1974-7 before they
switched to MOR.

Author 10TVMan ( ago)
Awesome. I has inspired me to get out some of my old collections and post
them.

wiping the tears from my eyes...cool shit!

Such a great sound. Thanks for posting this!!

Author RetroJoe66 ( ago)
Very cool! Another great imitator was 1050 CHUM, Toronto.

Author Joseph Frederickson ( ago)
Somebody must have a compilation of the famous Hit Parade 68 and 69
packages. Drake syndicated them to radio stations all over the U.S. This is
a terrific compilation right here and they would add to it.
