Ken, what always blows me away when I hear jingles is how white they sound. I mean really corny. If there was anything that was begging for a Civil Rights revolution, this was it!

If you want to hear a funny take off on radio jingles, listen to George Carlin's second album "FM and AM". On the AM side he does a radio program with his character Scott Lame and it's full of jingles.

Also was surprised that I didn't hear a WLS jingle in the montage. I did hear WHBQ from my old stomping grounds in Memphis. Interesting fact -- WHBQ and WMPS of Memphis both used the same tunes in their jingles during the late 60s even though the stations were owned by different companies. I thought the jingle company would have a no compete clause in their contracts but apparently not.

I have enjoyed all the podcast episodes, but this was the best by far. The tips were fun and useful--even the ones I've heard a dozen times were entertaining because of the punchy delivery style. Subtext: "I only have one thing to say, and I've said it, and we're done." Glorious!
