Benztown Contemporary Christian Library Goes Live

Benztown, a global leader in radio imaging, voiceover, programming, podcasting and jingles, announces that it has launched a brand-new audio imaging library for the Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) format, created by Christian radio imaging and production specialists exclusively for Contemporary Christian radio stations. Uplifting, inspirational and fresh, the Benztown Contemporary Christian Library is a complete audio producer’s toolkit of composed music, sound design, artist content, and customizable imaging pieces dedicated to the CCM format. Housed on Benztown’s industry-leading platform, the Benztown Contemporary Christian Library is the first and only imaging and production library in the industry that directly addresses the specific artists, community, and lifestyle of the CCM format.  

The Benztown Contemporary Christian Library is available to stations on a market-exclusive basis for barter or cash. Trial accounts are available for interested stations. To listen to a demo of the Benztown Contemporary Christian Library, visit: https://benztownbranding.com/formats/contemporary-christian.  

Dave “Chachi” Denes, President, Benztown, noted: “We are thrilled to bring our advanced audio imaging and production capabilities to Contemporary Christian radio stations with the launch of the Benztown Contemporary Christian Library. Prior to this, the only option for stations in the CCM format was to use imaging libraries designed for other formats such as AC that could be similar in brand presentation, but which would only allow them to benefit from the composition and sound design pieces in that library, since the artist/imaging content was for secular music. Now Contemporary Christian Music stations can get the best of both worlds – the composition and sound design pieces that match the sonic approach of the format, as well as the artist-specific and lifestyle-specific imaging pieces for station branding. We look forward to working with CCM audio producers to elevate the sound of their stations through this exciting new library.” 

Chuck Tyler, Director of Programming, Salem Media-Los Angeles, commented: “Benztown is really ‘on it’. Here at Salem Media in L.A., we have come to rely on the Benztown resources as a key element in our sound architecture. It’s really exciting to see they are going to be working their magic in the CCM space.” 

Format Captain for the Benztown Contemporary Christian Library is Adam “Ketch” Kecskemeti, who for eight years wrote and produced for 102.1 the edge, Q107 and AM640 in Toronto. Kecskemeti also wrote and imaged the Virgin Radio brand in Canada from its flagship station in Toronto, and contributed to CHUM FM. He has worked for Benztown Libraries and Custom Imaging team for the past four years. 

Josh Uecker is Head Writer for the Benztown Contemporary Christian Library. Uecker got his start in the CCM format in 1997 and has since written imaging copy on a full time or contract basis for award winning stations in Charlotte, Minneapolis, Washington DC, Southern California, Columbus, and more.  He is also the senior producer (and show writer) for Keep the Faith, the #1 faith based syndicated music show in America.   

Voice talent for the library is Joe Szymanski. Szymanski has had close ties with Christian radio throughout his life and early career. As an imaging voice for over a decade, he currently works with many influential Contemporary Christian Music stations who rely on his warm, relatable approach to connect with their listeners.

Brandy Jingles Enhance One FM’s On-Air Flow

One FM – the largest commercial hit station in French-speaking Switzerland – has once  again commissioned BRANDY to design its sonic branding. Brandy delivered a package of customized jingles, a tailor-made Top of the Hour and functional beds. The package  is a ‘custom-ization’ that sounds like 100% made-to-measure. And the One FM DJs are  delighted! 

After 6 years, One FM, French-speaking Switzerland’s leading hit station, has again entrusted  its sonic design to Brandy. The Brandy producers built on existing tracks to provide the station  with a contemporary, energetic imaging that is also positive and musical. “You can’t really call  this a resing anymore,” says Tom Van der Biest, Brandy’s Creative Director. “The jingles have  been entirely reworked and given their own One FM twist – we can hardly even remember the  original jingles.” 

The One FM DJs are over the moon. Hervé, the station’s L’Happy Hour presenter: “The new  jingles add freshness to our programmes and provide great dynamics while keeping a  wonderful flow between our tracks.” The Top of the Hour – the station’s key jingle – is fully  custom-made. “Thanks to its musicality, the build-up in energy, and the powerful vocals, this  jingle relaunches the music after the news sublimely,” adds Hervé. 

Brandy produced beds for news, weather and traffic that perfectly match the station’s  personality. Morning DJ Stéphane: “Thanks to their colourful punch and dynamics, the  functional beds augment One FM’s flow between breaks and tracks. In particular, I find the  beds for the traffic and weather spot-on!”

BusinessAM – Complete Sonic Identity Solution by BRANDY Jingles in 2023

BRANDY Jingles starts 2023 with a complete sonic audio branding package for BusinessAM.

BusinessAM is a new talk-station that was just launched in Belgium via DAB+ and streaming.

The station sound is built around a strong sonic logo that’s the foundation for the station’s main theme. BusinessAM is part of a larger multimedia platform and reports non-stop about business, economics, technology and politics.

Each of those topics has gotten its own sound, related to the main theme but with a distinct sonic identity.

PURE Jingles Provide Coherent and Strong Sonic Identity for Mix Megapol Sweden

Even a broad variety of jingles can lead to a strong identity in branding. Mix Megapol’s recent station imaging update is living proof of it.

This year, the team of Sweden’s nationwide AC station tried something new. They  went for maximum diversity when choosing their themes from the JingleBox. Jingles  that were originally produced for more than 5 different stations, covering a diversity  of radio formats. Even including one CHR cut to throw some spice into the mix!

The creative challenge for the production team was obviously to blend it all together.  First of all, they adapted all jingles with a custom logo melody (the station’s heritage  identity). Then a custom vocal sound with Swedish sung lyrics was added. Finally,  certain techniques in merging, mixing & mastering created coherence.

Secret sauce

“It’s the secret sauce of the JingleBox”, branding consultant Thomas Giger says on  behalf of PURE Jingles. “Resulting in a package that sounds like new, only costing a  fraction of full-custom production. With energy bills going through the roof, we hope  this solution helps many stations get a near-custom sound for a budget-friendly fee.”

Mix Megapol and PURE Jingles are working together since 2017, and have mutually  evolved the sound of this station on an ongoing, annual basis. In many cases through  JingleBox productions. The heritage brand is one of Sweden’s most successful music  stations, consistently ranking in the Top 5 and currently in the Top 3 nationwide.

Contact & Brandy: Still The Best Mix After 15 Years

With ‘Le Meilleur Mix – Contact’, France is being introduced to a new sonic logo – and  it’s the heart of the make-over that Contact FM is conducting on its 40th anniversary.  The station attaches great importance to a highly distinctive identity. It envisioned  translating this into sonic branding with a surprising twist and, of course, its own  musical and vocal sound. A mission that fit BRANDY like a glove. 

Brandy’s Belgian radio consultants and sound designers composed 10 custom-made  jingles, including a Top of Hour and beds for news, weather and traffic. The core is a super recognizable 6-note logo built around Contact’s new tagline. Nicolas Pavageau, Groupe  Rossel’s Director: “We wanted a more contemporary sound that builds on our strengths.  Having the station’s named and slogan sung works very well for our brand – we wanted to  keep that and translate it into an updated version.” 

“Just about every briefing contains keywords like ‘current’ and ‘fresh’. But Contact wanted a  design that fit with the station’s musical spectrum and brand values and, at the same time, it  had to sound really different from what you hear on other French radio stations. Which is  exactly what we love to sink our teeth into!” says Tom Van der Biest, Creative Director at  Brandy. 

Contact has been calling on Brandy for 15 years now. This is the 9th jingle package that Brandy  has produced for the station. “Brandy is a long-standing partner of Rossel Radio, and we can  truly rely on them. We especially appreciate their great professionalism,” Nicolas Pavageau  concludes.

Christian radio jingles for a great audience appeal

Christian music and encouraging content are gaining popularity worldwide. Also in  the Netherlands, where Groot Nieuws Radio (Great News Radio) is making waves  with inspiring programming. Since 2012, PURE Jingles is a part of their station  sound, which is regularly updated with new productions. 

”Groot Nieuws Radio is a station with a unique format on the Dutch airwaves”, music  programmer Nando Kok says. “An Inspirational AC format with plenty of conversation  during daytime hours. Contemporary church music is an important part of our sound,  which comes with a warm, personal and strong acoustic feel.” 

Uplifting Christian jingle package 

Apart from scheduling the music, Nando coordinates the imaging. “We really love the  uplifting package that PURE Jingles has created for us, because it blends perfectly in  our worship-driven playlist”, he says. Their jingle package has now been expanded  not only with Christian AC jingles, but also with specifically-themed radio imaging. 

Jingles for specialty programming 

“Every night between 7 and 8, we play an hour filled with classical church & choir  music. In 2022, we created an online-only channel for this genre. For this specialty  channel, and for shows on our main station, we needed specific custom jingles that  match this musical texture & feel. PURE Jingles came up with specialty cuts that do  just that: keeping the traditional feeling alive, while still sounding remarkably fresh.”

BRANDY’S MEMORABLE SOUND ON WNIC, DETROIT


A new series of jingles, produced by Brussels-based BRANDY, is on air at the legendary station WNIC in Detroit. This is the third time that morning host Jay Towers has called on the Belgian branding agency. Tracks from the Kick Up series were used as the basis of the new package and then were tailored for one of the leading morning shows in the States.


For the third year in a row, BRANDY has produced the audiobranding for ‘Jay Towers in the Morning’. The American radio and television personality has again selected tracks from the Kick Up catalogue, which is continually being expanded. The tracks are edited and crafted to sound as if they have been custom-made. “The special thing about Brandy is the unique sound they create,” says Jay Towers of WNIC. “Brandy always finds ways to give our show a memorable sound to enhance our brand. And it just can’t be duplicated.”


Tom Van der Biest, Creative Director at Brandy: “It’s a pleasure to work with Jay. He knows exactly what he wants. And a strong end-result almost always starts with a strong briefing.”


Jay Towers: “Consistency is everything for us. With our show, with our features. And when you use jingles, you want them to be an extension of your brand. They should never sound out of place. They have to be part of the fabric of your show. And our listeners come up and sing our Brandy jingles to us. So Brandy, Detroit loves you!”

Brandy and TOP Make You Move: New Name, Slogan and Jingles for TOP

BRANDY & TOP MAKE YOU MOVE

TOPradio is now TOP – and the station chose BRANDY to add musical and recognizable power to this change. In the last few months, the station has undergone a metamorphosis: new state-of-the-art studios, an updated program schedule – and also, since this week, ‘We Make You Move’ as a slogan and a complete jingle makeover.

The reactions to the audio design for a station with a unique positioning and a distinct musically danceable format are unambiguous: the result is top!

With the design for TOP, Brandy has once again created a unique jingle sound that accents TOP’s ‘hits with a beat’ format. The station also sought a highly recognizable auditory identity – and our audio wizards found the building blocks for this in the station’s new ‘We Make You Move’ slogan. “The fact that Brandy was involved in choosing the slogan is not only a sign of confidence in our expertise,” says Tom Van der Biest, Creative Director at Brandy. “It also helped bring the right ingredients together for a strong sonic brand.”

Brandy produced 8 basic jingles, a top of the hour, beds and service beds for weather and traffic. Moreover, the jingles received a thorough post-production treatment.

“The result is astonishing. Thanks to Brandy’s boundless creativity, TOPradio has literally become TOP,” TOPradio’s Bram Vanhee comments. “The collaboration with Tom and his team was intense and fantastic. The station’s sound has been perfectly translated into the new audio design. The immediately recognizable audio logo combined with today’s musical sounds achieve an unprecedentedly high international level.”

We knew the guys from before, so we knew that we will get a great jingle package – but the final result is above that! Radio 1 now sounds fresher than ever!

Top Format Turns NPO 3FM Audio On To The Next Level

To reinforce the programming shift at NPO 3FM, the on air sound of the station has been refreshed by Top Format Productions. According to the NPO 3FM team, the new package fits perfectly with their new slogan ‘We Want More’ and an updated station playlist. 

This was a special cooperation with the NPO 3FM jingle team and Top Format. All music and sung vocals are made by Top Format. This new package is on air since Monday September 12, 2022 and contains 10 main ID’s including a new Top of The Hour.  

Dave Albers, Creative Director, Top Format Productions BV

“We want more” is the new NPO 3FM station slogan. That is what station manager Menno de Boer said in the podcast ‘Dit Was De Radio’. “It has to fit in well with the music we play. And with that, we also have to update the sound.”

The station manager also indicated what he wants to change. 

“3FM is een makelaar in misery geworden. Een bezorgde zender met een format dat niet echt te duiden valt en alle kanten opschiet.”

“Ze droegen de zender niet als een team. We gaan nu muziek belangrijker maken. Er werd teveel geluld en de muziek was maar bijzaak. Daarnaast moet de positiviteit en het plezier in radiomaken weer terugbrengen.”

The new jingle package jives perfectly with the refreshed programming.

RadioJinglesPRO.com chatted with Dave Albers, Creative Director at Top Format Productions on the creative process.

RJPRO: How was the production process, what was the task given by 3FM?

NPO 3FM and Top Format aimed to create a jingle package that accompany the new brand strategy of NPO3FM.

In total 10 jingles / cuts are custom made.


RJPRO: When creating this package, were there specific songs you used as sort of inspiration for the production?

The briefing is build around descriptions and references like: Tate McRae, Foals, Harry Styles, Festivals and very tight drums.


RJPRO: How does your creative team balance between relatability (meaning the jingles are as recognizable as the songs played on air at 3FM) and remarkability (or how the jingles still stand out)?

In a very organic way: the mission really is to melt the “3” simultaneously with the core songs from NPO3FM. It works both ways: branding the new sonic logo in a strong and positive key to build instant recognizability ánd build a credible music track in front of the sonic that breaths the energy and music vibe of the brand.


RJPRO: Will this package be available for syndication or be resung outside of Europe or the Americas, such as Asia?

Yes. As any custom Top Format package the framework of each cut is available as customized syndication throughout the international radio and streaming markets.


RJPRO: The station has a new slogan “We Want More”, how did this new identity translate to the production and final sound of the jingles?

Literally by adding More musicality into each jingle. More recognizability in the vocal melody and more detail into the Mastering so that the audio imaging team at NPO3FM can adjust all of the cuts with the new stations voices.

RJPRO: It’s definitely the 2020s now, as they say in the media, it’s the time for the Gen Zs, what difference have you noticed in the production of jingles compared to, say, 10 years ago, aside of course from the new technology. Has the essence of station jingles evolved? Or is it still the same? 

The essence of audio imaging is in a constant movement. Due to production techniques, plugin updates, vocal talent and how audio branding is involved to fulfill the 360 strategy.

Radio 2 Enters Into New Partnership With Brandy

Belgian market leader, RADIO 2, is working with BRANDY again. The station has faced its  most massive makeover in over a decade. And now the station wants to reflect better being  a part of the public broadcaster VRT. The station got a new slogan and wants to be connected  with a more contemporary form of radio. Brandy was asked to produce an extensive jingle package including show starts, flow jingles, beds and a series of service elements.  

The challenge for Radio 2 was big and probably a bold move. The addition of “VRT” to the logo  means the station is embarking on a new path. Radio 2 wants to break new ground in terms of sound  to improve its alignment with contemporary music production and better meet the changing  expectations of the listener. The broadcaster used a European competition to find a partner who  could translate these strategic choices into efficient sonic branding.  

Bart De Raes, Imaging Director Radio 2: “It’s a big change. Thankfully, the whole team is very  enthusiastic about the new station sound. It’s fresh and innovative while still being familiar to the  listener. The most heard reaction from the Radio 2 presenters and producers is that the jingles give  their programmes a fresh, cool sound. This adds a new dimension to Radio 2”.  

“It is an honour for our consultants and producers to fulfil such an important assignment,” says  Diederik Decraene, Managing Director at Brandy. “We know the station very well and are happy to  pick up the Radio 2 thread again and support Bart and the imaging team. The result is a  contemporary jingle package that fits the ear very well yet is sufficiently distinctive compared to  commercial broadcasters. After all, Radio 2 was explicit about this”.

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.
