New online radio station is #jinglemad

A new radio station is set to launch, playing nothing but radio jingles 24 hours a day including the complete Radio 1 collection of cuts from The Chris Moyles Show.

JingleMad Radio will use jingles made for others – including the Chris Moyles Show – to fill its schedule, and feature the work of some of the biggest jingle companies in the world.

The station, which will broadcast online, has been in testing for the last few months and will supplement the popular JingleMad.com forums, which celebrate 10 years of conversations next year.

It has been set up by radio audio producer Roy Martin, who owns the UK radio industry website RadioToday.co.uk and the world’s biggest jingle forum at JingleMad.com

He says: “There’s been lots of talk about jingles in the news recently with Radio 1 moving away from them at breakfast, so anyone who wants to continue hearing the Music 4 produced idents, can do on this new station.

“JingleMad Radio has been a long time coming, and with the many months of testing we are almost ready to launch. The station will have a strict schedule of jingle montages, demos, compilations and features, plus hourly news with the latest from the world of radio jingles and production.”

Permission has been given by over a dozen jingle companies to use their copyrighted material going back decades. From Pams and JAM to Brandy, Reelworld and Music 4, listeners will be able to tune in 24 hours a day and even request their favourites.

A typical weekday hourly schedule on JingleMad Radio will include jingles news, a top of the hour cut, a 66-jingles in a row montage, jingle demos, featured cuts and user montages ending the hour with sport, travel and weather beds. JingleMad Weekends will be non-stop single jingles.

JingleMad Radio will be the only stream playing non-stop radio jingles, and is sponsored by UK-based P Squared who are kindly providing their flagship software Myriad and Autotrack, along with streaming by PlanetWideRadio.com.

Liam Burke, co-founder of P Squared is excited by the new station: “As self-confessed radio geeks, we at P Squared are delighted to support JingleMad Radio and wish them every success with the launch.”

JingleMad Radio is owned by Park Media and broadcast from MediaCityUK. Press and media can find out more at JingleMadRadio.com
