"It's a lot of work, but it's better than having a real job."
Jon Wolfert doesn't just play the songs, he plays the songs between the songs.
Every Sunday from 3-6 p.m. ET on rewoundradio.com, the veteran jingle producer and executive plays the hits of the '60s and '70s and also the jingles associated with the era.
The result is an incredible look at the "little tunes" that have played such a big part of the Top 40 radio listening experience over the years.
Wolfert, a native of New York City who now lives in Dallas, has spent a lifetime in the jingle industry, beginning with PAMS in 1971 before starting his own company, JAM, three years later. JAM has become the #1 source for jingles in the United States. Says Wolfert, "It's a lot of work, but it's better than having a real job."
Wolfert's show from June 24, 2018 is extra-special as it features an fascinating interview with two long-time jingle singers. Let's listen in.
