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.
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.”
