WQAM’s Jingles

In the Sixties and Seventies the majority of the jingles used by WQAM were produced by PAMS of Dallas.

In 1962, PAMS Series 15, 17 and 18 were in use along with the “One-der-ful” series produced by the Richard H. Ullman Co.

WQAM was automated in the early Sixties and used Time and Temperature jingles produced by Futursonic. There was a jingle for every hour and minute of the day and every temperature. These were used until 1963.

In 1963,  according to a newspaper article, WQAM produced their own jingle package sung by a New York group called the Skipjacks. However, Jay Marks found a demo tape called "Station Break" from Tucker Productions, New York, for station KGLC, Oklahoma that contains some of these jingles. They were used almost exclusively during 1963 and mid 1964. Another set of Time and Temperature jingles were included to be used for the automation. They were not used for long as the automation ended in 1963.

At the time, I really hated these “home-grown” jingles. They just did not compare to the quality of the PAMS or Ullman jingles. I used to call the station and beg them to bring back the PAMS jingles. I wonder how many other people called and requested jingles rather than records. Eventually, they did bring back the older packages and phased out most of the Skipjack jingles. Although my requests probably had little to do with it, I guess they didn’t hurt.

In, 1964, WQAM returned to PAMS for at least three different versions of Series 25.  25B (with Sonovox) and at least two of 25C.

WQAM used mostly PAMS jingles for the remainder of the Sixties with Series 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, and 31. At some point they got some cuts from Series 20, 23 and 34. Cuts from Series 37, 40 and CLYDE were obtained in the Seventies.
