News Jingles


The mainstay of any local radio station apart from music and speech content is it's news output, and to make a news bulletin stand out a Radio Station needs a viable set of news jingles. From October 1974 through to the mid eighties Radio City used the news jingle which was composed by Gerry Marsden M.B.E. and vocally realised by Madeleine Bell, a former vocalist with the 70's pop group Blue Mink. As soon as you heard that 'Top Of The Hour' jingle you knew that it was news time. Even though Radio City had new jingle packages in 1977 (Emison), 1979 (Sue Manning) and 1983 (Standard Sound) they still used the Gerry Marsden TOTH up to the mid to late eighties. The only difference with the various packages that City used up to the mid to late eighties was the news outro jingles, there is a selection of the news jingles on this page.
