Thanks for your interest in PAMS jingles!
Here are some of the many comments we've received from fans around the world who have
purchased "The Magic of PAMS" CD collection.
I grew up on Long Island, and
starting in 1964 listened to WABC with a transistor radio. I didn't know what company those catchy jingles
came from as a kid but I know now. Obviously I purchased the 10 CD colection, and I listen to it everyday.
Thanks PAMS you have added so much pleasure to my life, and now you continue to do so.

This is great - my wife bought me the set (I now own #359) for my birthday!
Louisville, CO USA
Thanks for taking the time to help preserve a favorite time in my life.
Having been fortunate enough to work in radio during the “Golden Age”, 60s & 70s, my memories
of the experience will live with me forever. Pams of Dallas will always be the catalyst for these memories.
Richmond, KY USA
Still love playing the CD's even though I have had it now for almost 18 months.
Buying the set encouraged me to start collecting again and I have discovered some great
PAMS packages which I was not aware of. Keep up the great work.

Hi- as a dedicated fan of Pams jingles for over twenty years, I was pleased to be able
to purchase the 10 CD box set and am very pleased with the quality.
Many thanks again and keep up the good work.
Thanks much for the collection. I remember growing up in Hazen, N.D.
listening to KOMA in Okalahoma City at night with Fun Vibrations...&
of course...from the Rock Of Chicago (Gary Gears) WLS... & my first
radio job (full time) KFYR Bismarck, N. Dak... Oh what a lot
of memories... Thanks agian.

Thanks a LOT... I can't get the melodies from Series 27 out of
my head :) Thank god these are on CD and
not vinyl (they would be worn out by now). Very clean recordings!

I can't thank you enough for your diligent efforts in reconstructing
all the numbered PAMS packages. Your attention to detail is most
impressive. I know it was a labor of love, and I have never heard
these jingles more cleanly than as they appear on these CDs.
The bonus tracks are appreciated, too.
Burbank, CA USA
I got my copy for Christmas from the girlfriend and haven't
been able to take it off the CD player yet and doubt I will for
a long time yet ! You have done a wonderful job on this set.
I'm sure it must be every jingle
collectors dream to obtain packages that they were brought up
I can only say that THE MAGIC OF PAMS is excellent in every way.
I'm proud to own Collector's Edition #158.
Thank you for *caring* about the radio that mattered.
Not everyone does. Your efforts in preserving the great
history of PAMS are much appreciated.

I received my copy of the PAMS set and I tell you what, nothing could prepare
me for the sheer magic you have accomplished in compiling these CD's - these
are absolutely fantastic! It took me a week to listen to it from
start to finish but gees it was a week well spent, and also I'm
damn proud of spending close to 400 Australian Dollars on something
as well put together, researched and compiled as this. What can
I say, listening to these discs is a dream come true. As they say out here..."it's a bloody

Even if the rest of the Known Universe
is unaware, there are those of us who fully appreciate the agony,
ecstacy, and untold hours spent creating this work of art. And
that's what it is, reflecting more history, nostalgia, and
life than any painting could. Congratulations, you've done
well, and you've also done a great service for posterity.

A big "Thank You" to you and all associated with
the final outcome of the "MAGIC OF PAMS". It's beyond
my greatest expectations. My copy arrived in the morning
mail. I immediately "ESCAPED" to the CD player and
spent the next 10+ hours remembering the better times. The history
book is superb in explaining the facets of each series. Again a sincere "THANK YOU"
for bringing a part of radio history into the new millenium.

Although I lived in The Netherlands (Europe) in the sixties and early seventies,
I did listen to PAMS jingles, either complete or partly used in the jingles
of the offshore radio stations at that time. It's great to hear the
original jingles sets with such an excellent quality! I'm very happy to
be the proud owner of "The Magic of PAMS".

This is a Christmas present I've been waiting 30+ years for!
West Hollywood, CA USA
My wife hates you because I've been playing these CD's non stop for the last
couple of days. Thanks for a brilliant collection, you've
made one UK collector very happy.
If you have ever been a fan of "those little songs between
the records" this is a must-have. In fact, these discs now
get more airplay in my car than the local radio stations!
There is no way to say thanks enough to Jon Wolfert, Tracy Carman,
Ken R. Deutch and everyone else who made this possible. Except
maybe to buy a second copy. Count me proud to be the owner of
Avon, CT USA
The sound quality is superb, the packaging and booklet copy are
first-class. All my expectations have been exceeded by the finished
product. To have a complete collection of PAMS
demos in such excellent condition is a dream come true for me,
as I'm sure it is for many others, and listening to them
without that thick patina of tape hiss from umpteen generations
of collector's dubs is like hearing them for the first time.
But this collection especially deserves the highest praise because
it saves a priceless body of work that is of inestimable significance.
Thank you so much for undertaking and completing such a valuable project.
How superb to have a definitive collection all in one place after
many years of collecting.
It arrived!! It's even better than I could have hoped.
You've got several very happy anoraks here in the UK toasting
WOW! "Magic" just arrived in my mailbox. As they
say, "well worth the wait!" This is and will go
down in history as "the definite" record of the PAMS magic.
Add me to your list of somehow who appreciates all your attention to detail--quality, authenticity, thoroughness.
Fantastic job on the mastering. Listening to this history is addictive.
St. Paul, MN
This is IT! I've just received the collection and it's "ear
candy"! Anyone who is a jingle, radio or media fan must
have this! I just received it today and I haven't been able to
stop listening. Great stuff. What a job putting it all together.
Also the insert pamplet that comes with it has all kinds of detail
and history. Congrats to Jon Wolfert!!

Words can not express my gratitude
to you (and all that contributed) in salvaging an almost "lost
jewel" in broadcast history! PAMS was sure the highlight
to many in the growth of the radio industry as we knew it.
Pittsburgh, PA USA
I've just spent four hours reliving my life and thoroughly
enjoying my first audition of the Magic of PAMS package. As a former broadcaster
I appreciate these PAMS demos on
so many different levels, not the least of which is your excellent
work in the technical aspects of the restoration and compilation.
Brewster, NY USA
Yesterday I received
my Magic package (Number 0024) - I NEVER got this low a number in either
the draft or the White Album - and it is FANTASTIC!!!!!! The sound and
production values are excellent. Thank you on behalf of all us mediamavens,
jingle junkies, and lovers of the Boomer Golden Age of Radio.
Orland Park, IL USA
Having known how much time and effort
you put into this PAMS collection and how careful you were to
make it authentic, I can only admire the astonishing dedication.
No one IN THE WORLD could have spent so much time and energy
getting it right. The CD Covers look great. PAMS will shine brighter
than ever for all of us thanks to you. Well done.
It's a monumental achievement which will stand for all
time as "the" definitive PAMS collection.
Congratulations and rock on!

Congrats on finally finishing the Jingle Demo CD Set of the
Millennium! Now all
I have to do is explain to my parents how an 18-year-old spent
230 bucks of their Hanukah money on ...historical jingle demos....
Don't worry, I'll figure something out. :)

I think I speak for every jingle
and commercial music fan in the world: Congratulations!
And thank you!
