Early ’60s Detroit Jingles Montage: WJBK 15 and WKNR 13

January 28th, 2012

From the MCRFB Radio Jingles Archive:

WJBK and WKNR

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s more radio memories during a time when jingles reigned supreme across the radio airways in the Motor City during the 1960s.

WJBK Survey May 12, 1958. (Click on image for larger view).

This set of jingles features more of WJBK Radio 15 from 1962 (PAMS). And we’ll also showcase a few jingles from WKNR Keener 13, notably from the Richard H. Ullman series here, from late 1963.

These very same jingles from the 1963 WKNR Ullman package had also been previously used in 1962, just the same, but with use of the WKMH call letters instead.

Here’s one feature from 1958 from WJBK Radio 1500… as you listen closely, classic vintage Motor City radio jingles, indeed!

We also have a jingles montage from WKNR Keener 13 in 1966. And here we have a promo from WKNR for an All Request Memory Weekend which was featured on Keener 13 during 1969 and 1970.

George Griggs, Scott Westerman, and mcrfb.com will have more of this from the website’s various archived files of airchecks, jingles, vintage radio commercials and radio ads which we’ll be adding more unto the site as we’ll progress forward from this day on. So stick around. There’s much more to come!

    Hello. I am looking to listen to soundtracks from the Fair and Square Club Radio Show on the WJBK Radio … guessing it was in the 1930′s. Do you have anything?? Please and thanks.

      Greetings Dyo,

      We’re thrilled you were able to find us here and dropping in on us a few days ago — way across from the “land of down under” half way ’round the world! We are always amazed when we receive comments from abroad and it appears you are the third Australian to have made note of this site by your comments.

      Thank you so much for your show of support. We appreciate your kind words more than anything else and pass the word we’re right here on Motor City Radio Flashbacks!

      –George, Scott W. and Jim
