    Does anyone remember this........
    Back in 1973 when the Radio One Roadshow was born, Radio One's Jingle architect Johnny Bearling wanted some Jingles that were different for the Roadshow (they were using PAMS and PEPPER TANNER at the time)and I believe he got this Demo from EMISON featuring Jingles for BFBS and the rest is history...........

    I think some of these cuts were also demo'd for BBC Radio 2 - I think Geoff Barton uploaded themn some time ago . . .

    . . . or is this a STUDIO G production ?

    These were the first EVER jingles I heard when Tommy Vance did the BFBS Top 20 Show, for which just the long track was resung. Been on the search for a good copy of that since . . . . . 1973 imagehttp://jinglemad.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />

    Yes you are quite correct, this is Studio G
  • If I recall rightly, Studio G demo'd these for Radio 2 (in stereo) . . . but Radio One decided to pick them up for the Roadshow . . .

    Wasn't STUDIO G the company who did the first BBC Radio Northampton package in the 1980's?

    Does anybody remember how the Roadshow used to kick off back in 1973-1976 (before JAM)?
    I can remember the EMISON (Studio G?) Cuts and some of the PAMS Cuts like "Radio One The Music Machine"

    I think I`m right in saying it was Graham Collins who mentioned several years ago that it was Studio G who sang the R1 Roadshow jingles, hopefully Graham will read this and jump in with more info...

    If it wasn`t you Graham, sorry !

    Just to confuse things further, I have them down on my jingle list at #2996 as Emison/Studio G image
    2995 CHRIS RAINBOW – “Radio 1 in…” Scotland, The South, Yorkshire etc…(accapellas – aprox 1975) EMBARGOED

    2996 EMISON/Studio G – Radio 1 roadshow package (? early 1970s)

    2997 PETE WILSON 30 Years of Jingles (1977 to 2007 i/c JAM “Its great being Pete”)

    David is right, I managed to speak to Johnny Beerling about this and he told me that it was indeed Studio G who produced the Roadshow cuts. Whether they were bought by EMI to be come EMIson in later years is up for debate.

    Interestingly I recognised the Roadshow jingle sound, but in reverse..... I blagged a day at BFBS-UK on the 11th October 1977 and whilst playing with their carts in one of the control rooms, heard the same music and American influenced sound.

    I will put up a montage of all that I recorded that day shortly <img src='

    OK, here are the cuts, direct from cart, recorded at BFBS-UK when their studios were in Dean Stanley Street near the Houses of Parliament in London. Very interesting to hear Geoff's better quality R2 demo:
