I have recorded hours and
hours of jingles and station ID's over the years on to reel-to-reel
tape...most of them are for stations which do not exist anymore due to
format changes. Some files are stored on our other radio audio clip site...you can visit its web page at nipper.freeshell.org

WJMP, Kent, 1520 AM.
WJMP had a country format as WKNT in the mid-80's. They then switched
to oldies as "Jumpin' Oldies" WJMP in the late 80's. Through the 90's
the station aired TV audio from a low power TV station, WAOH
It may have had a talk or sports format in the 90's at one time too. In
2003 the station aired the Music Of Your Life adult standards network.
It then changed to liberal talk and I think is now a sports format.
