TIPIK 2022: A PURE-ly Unique CHR Jingle Package

A DIFFERENT KIND OF RHYTHMIC CHR RADIO IMAGING

Walloon public broadcaster RTBF commissioned another PURE update of seasonal  idents for their youth channel, TIPIK.

Playing today’s best music with a Rhythmic Pop accent, they wanted to match the  current chart hits while reflecting the vibe of the summer. The 10-cut strong custom  package also includes show openers and thematic jingles for specific purposes.  From the drive-time show to live events.

Uniquely recognisable

“We therefore aimed to let every jingle within the package be unique”, says Thomas  Giger, responsible for client relations at PURE Jingles. “Always with the ‘TIPIK mark’,  including their recognisable logo & vocal sound. One of the aspects that makes this  package stand out is the vocal treatment of the voiceovers and the sung parts.”

TIPIK & PURE

RTBF TIPIK and PURE Jingles are working together since 2016. Fun fact: the station  was then still known under its former brand name, Pure. In 2021, they also became a  subscriber to the monthly-updated PURE Intros (branded song intro) service. The  newest package can be heard at purejingles.com/showcase/rtbf-tipik-2022-2.

Tokyo FM Celebrates Music of Haruki Murakami with new program Murakami Radio

TOKYO FM’s music program “Murakami RADIO” (last Sunday of every month from 19:00 to 19:55), in which the writer Haruki Murakami acts as a disc jockey.

Tokyo FM announced the success of its first broadcast of Murakami Radio, a new program celebrating the music of renowned artist Haruki Murakami, who also acts as the presenter. It airs every last Sunday of the month, 7 pm.

The show was piloted with the theme “The Haruki Murakami Library” from Makoto Wada Record Collection.

Murakami’s music has always been honored at the station as a live event, but this time Tokyo FM turned it into a regular program.

Mr. Murakami himself presents and talks about music at a studio built at the Waseda International House of Letters (commonly known as the Haruki Murakami Library), which opened in October last year.

The theme of this public recording is “From Makoto Wada Record Collection”. Makoto Wada, an illustrator who died in 2019, has a close relationship with Murakami and has worked on many bindings and illustrations for Murakami’s works.

This time, the station introduced the record collection that Mr. Murakami carefully selected from the huge number of records left by Mr. Wada and donated to Waseda University, along with valuable episodes and explanations

Jingles with good vibes for 100% NL

100% NL has completely renewed its audio branding with PURE Jingles. Positive  sounding AC jingles, matching ‘the best music of the Netherlands’ as the station’s positioning says.

“In order to keep up with new music trends, we want to regularly update the jingles,”  says Herbert Visser. Together with Carlo de Boer, he’s managing Dutch commercial  radio operator RadioCorp. “In November, PURE Jingles already contributed to the  launch of our soft-pop station Sunlite. The result of that good collaboration made  them the logical choice for us to also restyle our flagship.” Over 1 million listeners  tune in to 100% NL every week. 


Strategy
“One of the most important things you hear on a station is the jingle package,” radio  director Martijn Zuurveen explains. “Sound design creates the recognisability and a  nice feeling that you want to listen to. Completely matching with the target group of  young families that we reach. Our sonic branding supports the program & music strategy. Especially in his time, where ‘Nederpop’ (Dutch Pop) is loved.”

Result

“It is always a great and beautiful moment to renew our jingles”, radio coordinator  Raoul Schram adds. He supervised the project on behalf of 100% NL. “After the initial  briefing, we were able to provide suggestions for perfections. PURE Jingles handles  feedback very well and has 20 years of experience. They know what they are talking  about and that is a great way of working. And they always deliver quality. We now  also have the best jingles in the Netherlands.”

Listeners Send Appreciation for Inclusivity in Tokyo FM Radio Program

Tokyo FM’s mission transcends beyond entertainment and information, the station touches lives and the community. And this is even truer today, as radio host Takuya Kimura, shared a message from a teenage listener who was inspired by the program “Takuya Kimura Flow supported by GYAO”.

This month, a teenager who is suffering from stuttering, shared this message.

“The other day, I sent a message about stuttering. Thank you for reading the last time! I had a hard time living with stuttering, but Mr. Kimura’s words saved my heart and I decided to do more and more.”

“I hope I can overcome it. Thank you for giving me such kind words! “, says an 18 year old female listener who also suffers from the same disorder.

“I have had stuttering since I was a child, and like this person, I really love talking, but I can’t speak because I’m afraid of getting stuck (in words).” – from another listener.

“There are a lot of things that are painful, painful, and regrettable, so I can understand the feelings,” said another radio listener.

“Mr. Kimura’s encouragement touched my heart very much. Thank you! I hope that the program will encourage more people with stuttering all over the country,” said a 53 year old woman from Tokyo.

Kimura said, “I’m very happy that (listeners) are connected through this radio. I would be happy if you could make (this program) a place for exchanging opinions.

TOKYO FM “Takuya Kimura Flow supported by GYAO!” started airing this month and broadcasts everyday Saturday.

New Dutch Sing-Along In The Making: This Is Joe

Joe 70s & 80s is a new national radio station that went on air at the beginning  of this month via DAB+ in the Netherlands. The station called on BRANDY  for its sound – and the result is a contemporary package that perfectly  matches the music of the 70s and 80s. The music was originally composed  for Joe in Belgium; so, the tracks for Joe 70s & 80s received new vocals and  a very catchy ‘This is Joe!’ sonic logo. 

DPG Media Nederland, which also owns Qmusic, started the new national channel on 1 May via DAB+. Joe 70s & 80s plays classics and hits from those 2 decades.

From ABBA to ZZ Top, from George Michael to Michael Jackson, and from Prince  to Queen … the station focuses on the time when disco, funk, soul and rock reigned supreme.

The jingles for Joe 70s & 80s are a customized production of jingles from the ‘Joe  All the Way’ packages, which were produced for the station of the same name in Belgium.

Newtones Delivers Unique, Authentic New Sonic Identity for Africa Radio

Africa radio, the biggest french-speaking african radio station recently asked Swiss sonic agency Newtones to create a new sonic logo as well as a brand new top of the hour.

The new imaging elements started airing on April 11th to highlight the French Presidential Election special programming.

We wanted to reinforce Africa Radio’s identity with a top of the hour that would combine music and singing. The main requirement was that it has to be cohesive with the musical landscape of the station and its unique programming. 
“The Newtones team managed to isolate the fundamentals of our catalogue in terms of rhythms and sound. The result underlines the originality of Africa radio and blends perfectly with our programs.” Dominique Guihot, Africa Radio CEO

“That was an exciting challenge!” says Thomas Bise, CEO of Newtones. 
“Africa Radio can not only be heard in all of the big French cities on DAB+, but it also airs in Ivory Coast and Republic of Congo. It’s a fantastic showcase for us”

The Ultimate Kick For Radio Branding

The ‘Kick Up’ jingle series has been expanded again. Eight new tracks – with a high sing-along factor and huge doses of enthusiasm and positivity – fit perfectly with any Hot AC format. For CHR stations, the Brandy producers have pulled out  all the stops to provide muscular remixes.  

Kick Up is on air in the USA, Poland, Ireland, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium and France.

The Kick Up package is continuously growing bigger to respond to current music trends.  These tracks form the basis for the on air design of dozens of radio stations around the  world. And yet they all sound different. The unique personalization allows each station  to retain the energy and feel-good of the base tracks – but with the updated sonic logo  and unique vocal sounds, the jingles sound like they’ve been custom-made.

LFM Goes For Unique Sound In Radio

What can distinguish LFM in the Swiss radio landscape? Its on-air branding! So  the market leader among French-language commercial stations in Switzerland is  working with BRANDY, the Belgian producer of sonic design. This spring, LFM is  receiving 10 new tracks – and 3 of them have been custom-produced for the station’s morning show. As the commercial market leader in French-speaking Switzerland, LFM is known for its  solid content and exquisite musical format. By implementing the new audio branding at  the end of 2020, LFM added a decisive factor.

Fabrice Benedet, Artistic Director at LFM: “Brandy’s powerful jingles give LFM a strong emotional colouring. In no time, they became part of the original soundtrack in Suiss Romande.”

This spring Brandy produced a hybrid package with original tracks for the morning show  and jingles that were first composed for Joe and Radio 2 in Belgium. “And yet every track,  every jingle, sounds like it was custom-made. At the same time, everything forms a  unified whole,” says Diederik Decraene, Managing Director at Brandy. “That makes a  hybrid production advantageous: it delivers a unique sound for a lower budget.”

The new sound of Urban CHR: NPO FunX 2022

 March 18, 2022

With a sound design update from PURE Jingles, the urban brand of Dutch public  broadcaster NPO is entering the sunny season of ’22. A trendsetting new package  for Urban Contemporary. 

As a mission for his brand, program director Niels Hoogland speaks of connecting  the youth and giving them a voice. “Our target group is part of the ‘urban culture’, a  mix of influences and backgrounds. Their differences are seen as an enrichment.” 

“FunX has a recognisable, unique and positive sound: that of the ‘generation of the  future’, which can heard on the station by talking about ideas, trends and innovation.  In addition, we want to contribute to the empowerment of our audience, whereby we  stand behind (but preferably next to) our target group.” 

Up-to-date and in-tune 

About their strategy for sonic branding, Hoogland says: “It is very important that the  audio design really represents what we stand for. It should be a recognisable, unique  and energetic sound.” 

“The sound of our playlist in evolving incessantly. The most important genres for us  are Hip-hop, R&B, Dutch rap, Afro, Arab, Latin, Dance and Dancehall. That’s why I’m  glad that with this update we are completely ‘in-tune’ with the latest trends. Just like  the content on all of our other channels!”
