"Station Break?" sung by the Skipjacks

In 1963, WQAM acquired a series of jingles sung by a New York group called the Skipjacks. These jingles replaced all the jingles that had been in use on the station at the time, mainly PAMS Series 15, 17 & 18, Ullman "Wonderful" and the Futursonic Time and Temperature jingles.  These are  just a small sample provided by Don Williams and a few taken from air checks. There were plenty of others including one for each minute of the day and every possible temperature for Miami used for the automated time and temperature.
(Jay Marks has suggested that Tucker Productions produced these and the series is titled "Station Break")
