“Todd Storz, King of Giveaway” A 1956? Time Magazine article on Todd Storz and his formula for making his radio stations popular and profitable. This was written a week after Storz purchased WQAM. Courtesy of Jack Sandler’s Son, Michael Feinstein.
“WQAM Proud of It’s New Musical Image” This 1963 article is about WQAM’s new jingle package. Instead of going to PAMS or another jingle producer, they produced this one on their own. It certainly was unique. At the time, I hated them. They quit playing PAMS Series 15, 17 and 18 when they got these. I was sure glad when later in the year they got PAMS Series 25. Sonovox jingles were back

The 1963 package of jingles sung by a group called the Skipjacks. It may have been a series called “Station Break” by Tucker productions. There are over 1000 cuts including a complete set of time and temperature jingles replacing the Futursonic jingles.
