The Vault: 3XY, and a horse
For whatever reason, there seems to be plenty of 3XY Melbourne material to place into 'The Vault'. We posted some great announcer-specific jingles earlier – including one about Radio Today's own Greg Smith. You can hear them here.
Today, we post another collection of 3XY Jingles. Some were given the feel of hit artists or songs of that the era, and some were for Rocktober. Have a listen;
Remember Misex? http://radiotoday.com.au/music/3XY-Misex.mp3
The Doobies were big at the time.
It wasn't the 70's without Foreigner. http://radiotoday.com.au/music/3XY-Foreigner.mp3
Nobody's sure who this was meant to sound like. http://radiotoday.com.au/music/3XY-Country.mp3
And it was Melbourne, so Aussie Rules had to have one. http://radiotoday.com.au/music/3XY-Barassi.mp3
And onto Rocktober, which has probably had more jingles over the years that any one radio associated brand. Here's a few of them from 3XY featuring a who's who of the Melbourne music scene at the time;
The late Shirley Strachan was up for it. http://radiotoday.com.au/music/3XY-ROCKTOBERShirleyStrachan.mp3
As was Mark Holden. http://radiotoday.com.au/music/3XY-ROCKTOBERMarkHolden.mp3
And what a voice from Glenn Shorrock! http://radiotoday.com.au/music/3XY-ROCKTOBERGlenShorrock.mp3
Ol' 55 were massive then, and Frankie J had a crack. http://radiotoday.com.au/music/3XY-ROCKTOBERFrankieJ.mp3
And would you believe Norman Gunston? http://radiotoday.com.au/music/3XY-ROCKTOBERNormanGunston.mp3
And we're not quite sure what Marc Hunter was on about. Something about a horse. http://radiotoday.com.au/music/3XY-ROCKTOBERMarkHunter.mp3
