2NX Jingles Rock -On

2NX Jingles Rock -On

It is unknown who sang the early 70’s 2NX version of the 2SM network jingles.  They were more end of break jingles rather than between songs.  The NX call sign was a pain because if you dropped the music in too tight the X was cut off in the mix.  Most of the jingles came out as 2N-ek.  The X’sss was lost because of the action of the excessive compression / limiter settings common for AM radio.

thanks again to Michael Dalton, for this info

What, you thought that was it, nah, here’s more, superbly crafted and featuring the voice of Gary Roberts

 

2NX-scape was one of three station promotions taking advantage of the X call sign.  The others being 2NX-pedition (A form of car rally with location clues broadcast on air eventually leading listeners to a live concert featuring The Angels) and 2NX-change (collect $1 “fake” paper money from various locations to bid and exchange for prizes auctioned on air).

It came from an era when promotions were directly funded by the station (not clients) and designed to enhance the 24/7 image rather than individuals and specific session times like breakfast crews, morning talk shows and drive time “funsters”.

In keeping with Gary Roberts legendary passion for attention to detail 2NX-scape was planned in meticulous detail.  The concept came from Milt Barlow (who later followed Gary as PD of Radio Hauraki NZ).  We worked out of hours over several weekends to complete an entire set of teasers and promo’s in advance of going to air.

 

2NX-scape may be from another century but I hope it still stands up as a great idea with promo’s well written and performed.
