WMCA Jingles
(all jingles in standard .wav format)


Over WMCA's years as a Top 40 music radio station it used three jingle packages. It addition, the station did a lot of "in house" editing which means that from those basic packages, WMCA would frequently clip out sections of the jingles and remix them into new jingles. And, like most Top 40 radio stations of this era, the disk jockeys also created individual jingles and mixes for their own shows. It is also important to note that the "Good Guy Songs" which were sung by the disk jockeys themselves were frequently used instead of jingles to promote the station.


The Best Sound Package

From approximately 1960 until 1963 this series of jingles was used on WMCA. They were created by Chuck Blore and were also used on other famous Top 40 stations like KBOX in Dallas.

The Good Guy Package

These are the jingles most fans of WMCA will remember. They include the famous "yea yea" jingles. They were produced by Johnny Mann and ran on the station from 1963 to 1967. They returned to WMCA in late 1969 and 1970 when the station tried to revive The Good Guys after attempting some format variations.

They were only ten actual cuts in this package but WMCA edited those 10 long cuts into 105 different jingles. It is amazing what can be done with creative production! There are also a number of instrumental beds that were mixed with the jingles.
