Thanks for the clarification. I thought maybe Ingram pulled some stunts like a DJ in the Bay Area in the 80s that would occasionally insert satirical jingles that sounded just like the regular station jingles. Not sure if the station actually came up with the $$ to record them, or if he used some other trick.
The only one I remember is the generic jock jingle he would play occasionally:
"Your name here, 99 point seven, K-Y-U-U."
I like it!
No, Ingram had an acapella jingle "Daaan Ingram" that he played about 10 times an hour...but Ingram never stopped what was happening...the jingles were all over records, his rap, whatever. He used the jingle like a rimshot at the end of most jokes. It was so overdone (and I love Ingram), that Imus bootlegged a copy and started playing it on his show at WNBC...the competition...until management told him to stop.
Funny. Reminds me of 2 stories - both totally off the subject of the thread.
Though "The Rabbitt" (Jimmy Rabbitt) was considered more FM than AM, and a fish out of water at KRLA, I recall that he often flogged his jock jingle to death - using it maybe 8 or 10 times an hour. An ego thing, perhaps - or maybe on those nights he was relaxing with a joint or two.
RE: Imus/Ingram - When Bob Dayton was in afternoon drive at KRLA against The Real Don Steele, he used a lot of pre-recorded cut-in bits. For awhile, he used bits recorded by a confused and punch-drunk RDS sound-alike, who notably couldn't pronounce "Los Angeles" (B
oss Angeles -get it?). These bits only lasted a few weeks, so I figured station management told him to knock it off.
