PURE Jingles Delivered A Grand SLAM! Package 

Grand SLAM! with PURE Jingles

One of the Netherlands’ forward-paced radio stations is SLAM! It has a fresh sound that will become the new benchmark for rhythmic CHR.

The SLAM’s radio director is Martijn Zuurveen.

“We have recently presented a new schedule and an upgraded brand story. Imaging is a key part of that, and extremely important for any station as it co-creates your brand identity. .

SLAM! was looking for on air sound that suits its Pop & Dance format, which is primarily geared at male listeners between the ages of 20 and 40. 

“PURE Jingles has delivered a jingle package that fits perfectly with our energetic music mix, because at SLAM! the rhythm never stops”, says Raoul Schram, the content coordinator.  “After an intensive collaboration of several months, we came up with a renewed audio logo and rock-solid vocals.” 

Positive energy 

In addition, Martijn Zuurveen says: “SLAM! stands for positive energy and you can hear and feel that in our audio branding. It’s completely in line with this time and with the taste of our target audience. The sound design can also be perfectly combined with our SLAM! promotions, such as the Amsterdam Dance Event and our Formula 1 Month.” 

The custom-made jingle package of SLAM! consists of 10 main themes and a red-hot Top of Hour. A full demo can be heard at https://purejingles.com/showcase/slam. Over the last months, PURE also created the imaging for RadioCorp’s two other stations; Dutch-AC format 100% NL, and Soft AC brand Sunlite. 

Radio’s Key Impact During Economic Crisis

During the late 1970s and early 1980s, radio had a pivotal role in assisting with the inflation crisis. At the time, FM radio was increasing in popularity and demand for music led to record companies inflating the prices of their catalog. This lack of price competition caused the price of albums to increase sharply. In response, consumers turned to radio stations to listen to music for free instead. By doing so, they deprived record labels of sales but saved them money in the long run. As the price increases continued, the popularity of listening to free music on FM stations increased as well.

The popularity of radio grew in the mid-1980s as cassette tape players became more popular. Music lovers began taping their favorite songs from the FM airwaves so that they didn’t have to pay full price for them later. This trend eventually put many major record companies out of business. Radio played an important role during this era as it helped to sustain demand for music when record companies couldn’t compete with each other to provide competitive pricing for their albums.

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, there was a severe inflation crisis that crippled the US economy and caused the unemployment rate to rise to over 10%. During this time, record companies were struggling to compete with each other and control the price of their products. In order to boost sales, some companies began selling pre-recorded cassettes of some of their older albums at reduced prices. These tapes were sold at a lower price than the regular album and allowed customers to listen to the music without buying the entire CD. As the price of CDs continued to increase, this and other price-cutting tactics used by record companies helped lead to the demise of several well-known labels in the 1990s. According to the Wall Street Journal, “By the late 1980s, 80 percent of US households owned a CD player.” By the early 1990s, the sales of CDs surpassed those of vinyl records for the first time in history.

Economic woes raise fear of 1970s rerun – CSMonitor.com

In the 1960s and 70s, the most popular music listening device was the record player, which was primarily used for playing vinyl records. Because these devices could not be played outside the home or in cars, it was generally considered to be a device only used for listening to audio recordings. However, as consumers became more concerned about audio quality and convenience, the popularity of vinyl began to decline. By the early 1980s, record players had fallen out of favor with consumers and many were starting to switch over to compact discs instead. Some experts estimate that there were as many as 60 million record players still in use in the US at the time.

Today, the rise of digital music streaming has relegated the role of radio to that of background music while people work or do other chores around the house. As a result, some radio stations have shut down and others have been forced to change their format in order to compete more effectively with the growing number of online streaming services available today. In the future, it is likely that some radio stations will continue to thrive while others will not as they adapt to the changing market. But if anything, the health emergency in the last 2 years and the worsening climate disturbances have made people realized that radio is still king when it comes to emergency.

Sky Radio’s Power To Higher Top-of-mind Positioning

When you’re aiming to energise your playlist while connecting your brand to top  songs, consider the use of power intros! Sky Radio in the Netherlands has received  another couple of batches of these branded hit songs.

Power intros are memorable

“Power intros are excellent tools to claim your ‘A’ category songs as a part of your  station’s brand”, Thomas Giger of PURE Jingles explains. “Distinctive branded intros  that have been repeated often enough will stick in people’s minds. Chances are they  will associate that great-testing song with you.”

This strategic branding value can also translate into ratings: “Hearing the normal  version of that song, even on another station, listeners who know your power intro  will often hum YOUR station name along the melody of your branded version. It’s one  of those miracles of audio branding! Sung melodies are memorable, research shows.”

Branded intros work everywhere

“In diary-measured, recall-based markets, your station can get extra listening credits  as people may THINK they’ve been listening to you – while it may actually could have  been a competitor. Especially when the other station doesn’t have their own power  intro version or doesn’t precede the song with imaging.”

Branded intros also add value to PPM-market radio: “Power intros are contributing to  higher top-of-mind positioning. And just as important: they’re flow-friendly. Dropping  the imaging on the song, instead of in between two songs, helps to achieve forward  momentum. Short jingle cuts work well too, especially in front of ‘no-intro’ songs.”

Sky Radio’s new power intros

Check out highlights from Q2/’22 at purejingles.com/showcase/skyradio-2. And when  you’re looking for branded intros tailored to your own radio station, you can explore  the monthly-updated ‘PURE Intros’ service at purejingles.com/intros.

Paulxstretch is so damn good for pads and ambient, can’t get enough of sounds you can make with it only with one sample!

Nikolay Trofimov, Audio Producer

Panflow is so useful! So often I have some kind of FX-type sound that I want to bounce around the stereo field but isn’t worth the effort of scripting an automation. Now I just throw panflow at the end of the FX chain, hit one button to generate a random panning loop and I’m sorted. Massive efficiency dividends.

I think this podcast is a great way to be of service through storytelling – sharing the faith, strength and hope that many of my contemporaries and friends have experienced.”

Pinfield explained: “The success we are speaking to in Sound, Sobriety & Success is not financial, but success in living your life in a manner that moves you forward in a positive direction. It is important that we let people who are struggling know that they can do it and are not alone. Through the experiences of others, they can become their own architects in a new design for life – a life that is about progress, not perfection.”

Dave “Chachi” Denes, Producer and Co-Founder, Benztown + McVay Podcast Networks, commented: “The Sound, Sobriety & Success podcast is all about open and honest discussions about recovery and addiction, and offers raw and unfiltered information and insight, paired with deep empathy, compassion and support to anyone living with addiction and trying to turn their lives around.

PURE’s client relation manager Thomas Giger explains: “Playing the greatest hits of  all time means that the overall music composition on the station is largely constant.  Our goal is to surround these timeless classics with a sound that naturally fits the  music played, but which at the same time keeps the radio station in the present.

Transitioning from song to song, every  segue needs to be flawless. That’s why also this update covers several transitions in  tempo and/or intensity. It gives the presenters more tools to work with.”

Ukraine 12-12 Sounds Unisono Via 6 National Radio Stations

The major media houses in Flanders – VRT, DPG Media, SBS and Mediahuis – are  joining forces on behalf of the victims of the invasion of Ukraine. Today, 17 March, they  launch the Ukraine 12-12 benefit action on 3 television channels and 6 national radio  stations. The sonic branding was created by branding agency Brandy. 

Radio 2, MNM, Studio Brussel, Nostalgie, Qmusic and Joe broadcast 14 hours of live radio  dedicated to helping the citizens of Ukraine. In the evening, a TV show will be broadcast on  één, VTM and Play4. 

Bart De Raes, who is coordinating the sonic branding for the project, recalls teaming with  Brandy: “A benefit action on 6 radio stations at the same time – what does that sound like? We  got together with Brandy to work on this question. Given the situation, we want to keep it  serious enough – still, the nature and tone-of-voice of the stations require a certain lightness,  a certain smile. Not an easy exercise, but you should definitely hear the result!” 

Brandy developed a recognizable musical theme and integrated it into tracks from the  international KickUp jingle series. Anne Paulissen and Wouter Landuyt were cast as voice overs. Listen to a selection via

Tomorrowland’s One World Radio Goes Worldwide With Brandy

ONE WORLD RADIO – TOMORROWLAND’s radio station – is celebrating its 3rd  anniversary with an imaging update produced by BRANDY. The ID package builds  on the unique orchestral sound of the world’s best dance festival. One World  Radio can already be received nationwide 24/7 in various European countries via  DAB+ and FM, and it’s also on air on Saturdays via Qmusic in the Netherlands and  Fun in France. 

Tomorrowland is a monument in the world of entertainment. And one of the pillars of its  success is that it requires the highest standard in everything it undertakes. When it  launched a radio station 3 years ago, it chose Brandy as its imaging partner for One  World Radio. Which was the start of a dream – and perfectly natural – collaboration, says  Stijn D’hont, head of Music Programming at OWR: “Tomorrowland wants to bring people  together: uniting the People Of Tomorrow with The Sound Of Tomorrowland 24/7 all  across the world. Brandy is unique in its ability to communicate that DNA in its  productions.” 

A new spectacular ID is the basis for a toolbox in which One World Radio can easily  process quotes and voiceovers. Tom Van der Biest, Creative Director at Brandy: “We’re  building on the unique orchestral sound that is so characteristic of Tomorrowland. The synths and timeless classical instruments come together in a tight hybrid orchestral  sound. The intention was to immediately create a lot of momentum in the basic ID while  still being able to build up enough musically.” Here’s how the main ID sounds:
