Are BBC Local Radio going corporate with their jingles?! Radio Humberside changed theirs at the beginning of March to one which is a variation on that used on the Andy Peebles Late Show and is carried by all the BBC Local Radio stations in the North.

Yes, they are ... but slowly ...

There was a time when a lot of jingle work was done externally, but it's all being done internally with a view to bringing a similarity between stations ...

I hate that corporate sound that has been infecting BBC Local Radio recently; Southern Counties Radio is one of the few remaining to have been untouched by it and still have its own unique sound.

BTW, that should have read 'Here's a nice example' not he's a nice example!

Yes, it is the BBC World Business sting and I took cuttings from Radio 2 and just mixed them up.

BBC Radio Merseyside has kept the same jingle for at least 10 years! It's fantastic too!

Unfortunately, many stations will be going BBC LR corporate soon. The ones already swallowed are BBC Radios Kent, Newcastle, Essex, Devon, Nottingham and I'm sure more...

It would be nice if people could record the jingles at nine?
I'll record the BBC R. Merseyside one and upload it. It isn't often we hear decent quality radio jingles. I know this is a TV forum - but the topic is related.
