Another baseball jingle

From back when NBC was a class operation (1968), here’s the jingle they used on their weekend “Monitor” radio block when it was time to give the baseball Moisturizers in it am viagra price creamy !

Just in time to spend the checks from your grandparents

Our Baseball Music page has been updated to match the new format — and, more importantly, now with links in addition to the iTunes links.

I also acquired a new baseball-themed radio station jingle, from WCAU in Philadelphia — it’s available for download at the top of the music page, along with all buy […]

Opening Day 1994 seems like such a long time ago

Hanger-on Dan just sent out an e-mail with the subject line “News of earth-shaking impact” that turned out to contain a link to an news story and the words “Prepare to be a Reds fan.” Now, I don’t have an especially fast connection, and I was using much of the speed I do have […]

Jingle bells — you know, ho ho ho and mistletoe and presents to pretty girls

A new acquisition for the baseball-related radio station jingle collection: this one, from WBLG in Lexington, Kentucky (which now has different call letters and an ugly web site that hasn’t been updated in months). I don’t think this was a Reds network-wide jingle campaign; I think this particular affiliate had it done on their own. […]

There are Indians around, it’s Cleveland baseball

If you’re such a big fan that you’re excited about the comments, then prepare to lose control of various bodily fluids: I’ve just acquired and uploaded a new baseball-related radio station jingle, this one from WERE in Cleveland, dating back to 1961.

Incidentally, another jingle in this series starts off with the lyrics “In […]

Another baseball-related jingle

The season may be over, but my radio station jingle collecting continues. Here’s one I just acquired, circa the early 1960s, back when cheering baseball fans sounded a lot like ocean waves or static or something like that.

Here we go. From WCOL in Columbus, Ohio, circa 1963:

1230’s doubleheader(15-second instrumental bed)

And a pair of jingles from 1970, from a no-longer-in-existence Washington, D.C., station:

Double play, WEAM

Triple play, WEAM

True, they’re not directly related to baseball, but they are more grist for my upcoming thesis “An All-American Pick Hit: Baseball Imagery […]

I’ve gone through two of the nine CDs from the grab bag, and already have two baseball-related jingles…

From 1973: WFIL, the Phillies

And from some indeterminate time in the ’70s: WBAL, sounds like Baltimore sports(7-second instrumental bed)WBAL and the Orioles(7-second instrumental bed)WBAL, sounds like Baltimore sports

Unfortunately, neither of these is anywhere near as […]

Black water, keep on rolling

I’m not sure if I’m going to have room on my iPod for any additional Johnny Cash songs beyond the handful I have (“Ring of Fire,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” and a couple others). This purveyor of radio station jingles has a special this month: a “grab bag” of nine random CDs for $99, which was […]
