Programming Resources

Here are some good non-commercial sources for radio programming and elements.  Enjoy!

Daypart elements

Lfm AUDIO - New Zealand-based production house most famous for their 3-cut custom jingle package for under $1,000 for LPFM and internet radio. Lfm also provides liners with American voice overs and subscription  services such as  weekly CHR "power-intros".  

Music Radio Creative - UK-based production house providing American voice overs as well as syndicated sung jingles without a minimum buy.  

Studio Dragonfly - TM Studio's jingle "outlet store" featuring many of the classic TM (and Century 21) jingle packages for broadcast use.  The only catches are that you must purchase a minimum of 10 cuts (about $2,000) and you have to write your own lyrics to the jingles.  (If you need help with jingle writing, please contact Michi Bradley, she's a jingle anorak..)  (I pulled the link because of potential malware link...  You can also check out their parent company at tmstudios.com

JAM Creative Productions - "The number one choice for jingles" was the dominant jingle company of the 80s and 90s. Jon Wolfert and the gang are still chugging out the cuts for worldwide clients (including REC).  Expect a licensing agreement and a minimum buy.

Program Aggregators

Pacifica Audioport - Loaded with affiliate submitted short and long form programming.  It is well worth an affiliation with Pacifica.

That Thing with Rich Appel - If you loved the fast-paced top-40 radio of the 1960s and 70s where DJs talked up to the vocals, acapella and shotgun jingles stood out and the commercials were almost as good as the hits - you might like That Thing with Rich Appel.
