PAMS DJ Themes for Peter McLane and Deane Johnson - 1959

PAMS Early Recording Console.

In the latter half of the fifties, PAMS created a Series comprised of jock show opening jingles. Needless to say, young KWMT disc jockeys like Peter McLane and Deane Johnson had to have them. After all, the famous Sandy Jackson theme came from the series, and the jocks on WHB all had them. Fort Dodge may not have been a very large market, but we thought big.

As I recall, the jingles cost $75 each and we elected to purchase our own without call letters so we could use them in future markets. They were never used again.
