KDYL Jingles Are Back With Oldies Format, But From Which Jingle Company
Another heritage station in America goes back to a heritage radio format. KDYL AM is returning to playing oldies as in REAL OLDIES. Along with the comeback of this format on KDYL are of course oldies jingles. But which jingles does KDYL use right now — JAM or Jones TM? Any help. Anyhow, here an excerpt of the report coming from
KDYL (AM-1060) has returned to its roots — as an oldies music station.
According to “Steve-O” Carlson, the station has permanently departed from its all-American classics music format and has “launched the all-new ‘Real oldies’ format.”
The change was effective Jan. 1.
“It’ll be live and local and locally programmed to Salt Lake City. No satellite feed here,” Carlson said.
The new format began with just music and jingles, but some of the station’s veteran DJs came back this week. On Jan 7, Mark and Gayle Van Wagoner and Danny Kramer returned as part of the new format.
KDYL was an oldies station back in the 1980s, when it was KRSP-AM. The station had children’s programming from 1990-1997 and had all-American, nostalgic music since 1997.
KKAT (AM-860) switched from country music to an oldies music satellite show with Scott Shannon last year. So it appears this oldies format is becoming popular again.
KDYL is highlighting oldies music from the 1950s and 1960s, while KKAT is airing more of the late 1950s to early 1970s oldies music, so the two stations are not playing the same songs.
