1976/PAMS #42A (Dallas) - For the second time,
WDRC turned to PAMS for an energetic series known as The Igniters.
26, 1981/Toby Arnold shotguns (Dallas) - Arnold's jingle company
was well known in the industry. WDRC FM turned to them for this
package of shotgun, or short, energetic jingles.
1983/PAMS-CPMG #18/25/26 re-dos (Dallas) -
By 1983, both AM and FM were using fulltime oldies formats. The
original PAMS was out of business but a company called CPMG had
acquired the rights to sing new lyrics on classic tracks. WDRC mixed
some of their original Series #27 cuts with newly produced jingles.
Since WPOP had used both Series #18 (Sonosational) and #25B
(Happy Difference) in its heyday, many of the cuts were already
familiar to listeners. This package is based on WDRC's Hartford's
Heart of Gold identity and includes cuts for AM Stereo.
1984/PAMS-CPMG First class re-sings - CPMG
introduced some new material with classic PAMS tracks and marketed
them as the "First Class" package.
First Class - Like the previous package, these were designed
for an oldies format and were lyriced specifically for WDRC FM.
prior to July 13, 1986/PAMS-Century 21 "KB" Package (Dallas)
- During the 1980s, Century 21 became a leading jingle producer.
This series was originally sung for WKBW Buffalo and was aired in
Hartford on Big D FM. It utilized the imaging concept of Classic
Hits From Then and Now on DRC FM.
25, 1988/TM Century 21 custom (Dallas) - There are just two
acapellas: The Legends of Rock & Roll and a Gary James
August 1987/PAMS-CPMG resings - Once Frank Holler replaced
Fred Horton as program director, WDRC was literally awash in PAMS
classic cuts. These five Oldies Channel examples are generic
in that no AM or FM call letters are heard. The gaps in the music
were filled with Sonovox call letter, slogan or jock shouts.
1988/TM Century 21 Breakfast Club custom (Dallas) - This cut
was customized for the Brad Davis
morning show. Real fans of old radio will recognize the similarity
between these jingles and the show open for ABC Radio's longtime
"Don McNeill's Breakfast Club;"
this clip is from August 2, 1957.
to July 7, 1989/PAMS-CPMG Special Delivery (Dallas) - This was
another FM package produced specifically for FM. It utilized the
lyrics "Big D 103, Solid Gold."
19, 1989/TM Century 21 "Miami's WAXY" Package (Dallas)
- This was a syndicated package (Solid Gold Rock & Roll,
Hartford's Solid Gold and All Oldies All the Time).
1994/Thompson Creative-Oldies Combo (Dallas) - This demo
came from the company web site and was narrated by radio legend
Dan Ingram. Few of these cuts actually made it to the air. Larry
and Susan Thompson also syndicated this package as "The
Edge" for contemporary hit radio stations.
2000/JAM Creative Productions, Inc.-Do It Again (Dallas)
- For years, JAM has been a leading producer of syndicated and custom
jingle packages. This was its first partnership with Big D FM. In
August, 2000 the package was resung to reflect the lyrics "102.9."
April 30, 2008/JAM Creative Productions, Inc.-Home of the Hits (Dallas)
- After a long period without jingles, DRC FM began airing
a syndicated package first heard on WCBS FM in New York in 2004.

- Program Director Grahame Winters
narrates this demo for a DRC FM package with a slant toward
the station's 60s, 70s and 80s music. Like the "Home of
the Hits" package, "Right Direction" contains
a cut for WDRC HD 1.
