Jack FM Calgary
The Calgary Jack radio station, available within about 60 miles,
or 100 km, of the city of Calgary, plays
which will appeal to your average adult roughly 30 to 50 years old. Both men and women.
Why? This is the music we grew up with.
There are Jack stations all over the map, as well as the USA, and they have a lot in common with the Calgary Jack FM.
First of all the Jack brand. Secondly the
Hundreds of hits anywhere from 1960 to 2000, usually. Not too heavy, not too boring.
Don't Say Hello
Secondly, the station likes to use their famous brassy motto "Playing what we want", implying that user input is ignored. I've never tried,
but you likely could get a request in.
Otherwise just wait; they'll probably play it anyways.
Thirdly, the cynical sounding deep voiceover used to announce the Calgary FM Jack radio "philosophy",
and so forth can be quite amusing at times. That guy must be set for life. I've heard him on various TV commercials as well.
Finally, there's the phone contest. A lot of stations have had
contests before, but this one's been running since Jack FM Calgary started in spring 2003. And it's always the same. "Don't Say 'Hello', Say
'I Listen to Jack'".
I bet they all use that one, not just Jack FM Calgary.
started its corporate radio thing under Rogers Communications in Canada. Other corporations dove in to the action by licensing the brand, both in Canada and the US.
Additionally, other first names have been used, such as Bob, Joe and Dave. It seems these names took over from the popular
names of the 90's, such as the Bear, Wolf and Lizard.
Some critics refer to the kind or corporate approach, such as the one used by Jack FM Calgary, as the
of radio. That is where strict corporate standards apply to every participant.
Anyway, it's all in fun.
P.S. Don't forget about Matt & Eric. And the website and freeloaders contest points as well. And the Bonus Codes. And the comic strip (??)
If you want something other than corporate rock for a while, check out the local
Celtic folk scene.
