The Sounds of 66

Assembled for your listening pleasure are some of the sounds of 66 WNBC I have collected, or found links to. After all, what could be better than listening to 66 WNBC all over again. 

Jingle Notes:
Thank you to JAM Creative Productions  & PAMS Productions for the permission to use their jingles. Having worked with JAM, I can tell you they are the best in the business.  PAMS did the WNBC jingles from 1974 to the late 70's, and JAM picked up doing jingles for WNBC in the 80's. 

TM Jingles are their property.   They are found at TM Century, on the web at 

Most files have been encoded in the RealAudio format.  It provides higher quality audio at lower file sizes.  The player and encoder can both be downloaded for free.  All the RealAudio files have been tested with the latest version of Real Player 7 and play properly.

A Mike Berry Contribution: He says: "The TM tape was called "Design '72" so I assume that it was vintage 1972.The Heller package attached here was produced, I believe in 1969. I believe that it was a package deal for all of the O&Os. WRC got a similar Heller package in 1969. "

headphones 101 things to do with a WNBC jingle package 

A really neat page from the Boston Radio Archives.  It starts with what I'll call an 80's traditional top of the hour jingle that was used to transition out of news (The NBC Chimes, a :07 music sting, and then the singers "NBC... 66 WNBC." )  The fun part is it also has clips of the jingle in use, by WNBC and other stations.  A shout out to J.J. West, a friend and former co-worker who you'll hear on the WZON version. (This jingle was produced by and copyright JAM Creative Productions, Inc. Visit them at
