We were after a test username for the website and 'Zorp Furbal' was suggested. Who is Zorp? He appears at the front and back of a very famous promotional song from 1985 for Jam the jingles maker. So for fridays entertainment, we post the song here. How many radio stations from the eighties can you say you listened to?
The 1985 Jam Song
A pretty impressive roster of stations, sadly we only recognised two!
From the Jam Creative Productions website:
"1985 was a very busy year for JAM. There were several CHR and A-C formatted stations competing in almost every city, and JAM did the jingles for most of them. Countdown shows abounded, and you could hear JAM on one after another. To take a "snapshot in time" of that moment, we wrote and recorded The JAM Song.
In order to create as accurate a time capsule as possible, each station's logo melody was correct (as of the day we recorded it) and each station's call letters were sung by the same combination of singers who sang their most recent JAM package. This required lots of research and many different recording sessions which spanned about three weeks."
We also came across this BTS video of the recording of the BBC jingles
