County Sound's first jingle package was written by Les Reed with help from Aiden Day. Les Reed was a big band leader in the 60's and 70's and also wrote many well known pop tunes including Delilah for Tom Jones and The last Waltz for Engelbert Humperdinck. He also wrote Man Of Action, RNI's theme music. We're not sure who sung the original County Sound jingles but some were re-sung very early on by the Swingle singers. We don't have the whole package at the moment. Please get in contact if you can help us track this down.

The second package is by Alfasound (with some help from Les Reed) and is based on the same tune. The music for these jingles was recorded at Manchester's Yellow 2 Studio as the Alfasound studios were only big enough to do the vocals at the time.

The next jingles were again based on The One and Only One for you tune but this time with US vocals. The music tracks were recorded in the Alfasound studios and then taken to the Strawberry Sound Studios in Dallas for the vocals. Steve England picked the singers (some were known at TM Century and Jam). This was before Alfasound became the UK agent for Jam.

Then there was package 5, The Only One package which is a resing of the Jam jingles for WNBC in New York. There were versions for the FM service during the day (County Sound Premier Radio) and resings for the evenings when all 3 County Sound stations (First Gold, Premier and Delta) all came together to share the same programs. The jingles for on Delta Radio during the day are reseings of Leicester's Centre Radio package. The jingles for First Gold Radio's daytime programs are resings of some of the old Pams jingles. There's an amusing end to the last of the long jingles!
