Hi Norman,great site I am just starting to get back into broadcasting - both as an interest and as a work thing. Have just done an RSL for a military vehicle rally - RADIO WAR & PEACE.Noticed a reference on your site to a Sonovox that Steve England did for you back in '73.(I re-established contact with him the other day via the PAMS site). At around 72/73 I used to sell his cuts through a firm I had set up, EVANS & MARTIN BROADCAST PRODUCTIONS.We had dreams of becomming a major UK station id prod house plus commercial production, syndicated features etc. That did not come to pass, and in early '74 I went off to become LBCs first Commercials Producer.Evans & Matin produced one id package, aimed at the disco jocks and hospital radio stations. It was THE FRONTAL SOUND. We sold a few! - our maketing perhaps being stonger than our product!!! I have not listened to it for many many years. I think it is time though to put it back in 'the public domain'.Anyhow,perhaps if you were jingle collecting back then you may even have a copy of the demo - or even been one of the lucky ones who even had a customised set!!I cannot recal the names of any of our customers except one, Tony Harding - he was involved in hosiptal radio in Southampton and later I beleive had a jingle selling operation under the name of PRAMS.After the FRONTAL SOUND we did start getting together a better session singing group based around a local light operatic society and some of that stuff was nearer 'the bench mark' - or so I remember it to be.EVANS & MARTIN were up and running before EMISON - Studio G had been on the scene for a long time plus a number of outfits making programmes for 208 and of couse the IBC studio. But in some ways I think EVANS & MATIN BROADCADST PRODUCTIONS can lay claim to be the first outfit in the UK set up to produce packaged station ids and syndicated features - although we were going out of business before the third ILR had even gone to air!!!!! I also noticed reference to P & T 's HEART series - the great thing about this package was that it was so damn easy to edit out the station logo section and still have a musically and lyrically valid cut.I made much use of it on a land based pirate in '69 and '70 - SUN RADIO.ENOUGH! it is past bed time - I had no idea till the last few days that there was so much radio stuff on The Web - hardly made a dent on your site yet - keep up the good work.Yours,in the mood, CHRIS.
