WASSUP PEEPS!!!! Maybe you guys should put some old KLOK Radio promos and jingles on this site!!!! 🙂
We’d love to post more items from KLOK – if you know anyone who has some, please let us know!
Thank you for the KHTT jingles.been looking for those. I need to find the K HIT 15 jingles that fallowed.
How about the late 70’ KLIV jingles especially the top of the hour DJ talk over.
Tell me how to get them to the site / i have toh talk over kliv san jose remastered in stereo and kara 80s package in stereo
Tell me how to get them to the site / i have toh talk over kliv san jose remastered in stereo and kara 80s package in stereo. Give me your email and i will send mp3 of each. My email is email@example.com
Beazie, we’d love to feature them here – I will contact you directly. Thank you!
I would also like to hear jingles from KARA in Santa Clara.
I would really enjoy hearing some jingles from KOFY-1050 in the mid 80’s. Just loved the 50s-60s rock n’ roll format and the jingles. DJs were great too. Good times and fond memories.
Joe, those were re-sings of an old PAMS package. I heard them on WABC growing up, and loved playing them on KOFY.
Glorious! It has been excellent to hear PAMS packages in good quality. In 1974, our national easy listening station in the UK bought many cuts from the KNBR custom This is San Francisco but they weren’t a patch on the originals.
I have some jingles and station IDs for KFOG, KYUU, KXXX (X100), and KITS (LIVE 105) and KOME.
How can I contribute?
Larry : When you find out how to add in some cool contributions Let me know I have a lot myself to add , Thanks Larry ; RodneyAndregg@ymail.com
We have a contact page on the website. You can send us a message through our contact page.
Looking forward to what you have to share!
I enjoyed listening to these jingles. I wanted to ask if anybody had all the jingles from 96.5 KOIT “Love songs After Dark” show 2000-2006? I believe KOIT was owned or run by Bonneville during that time. The jingles I remember played in between songs/commercials from 8:00PM-12:00AM weekdays. Thank you.
KGO RADIO JINGLES! It’s so nice to hear the old KGO jingles pre-Dunbar and the news/talk format. The jingle song was actually the ABC signature which was used on the network trumpet ID and also on the national news intro. I’d never heard this KGO jingle package before. Thanks!
Trying to remember a San Francisco radio station (KSFO?) morning show jingle from the 70s that I heard often when my mom drove us to school. All I remember is the jingle includes the phrase “good morning” in different languages, e.g., “bonjour bon ami”. Can you help refresh my memory?
I believe that was Jim Lange’s daily ritual on KSFO – you can search him up here on the website.
(If I’m wrong, somebody please correct me!)
