Could you make a jingle where you say: "Today we're going to the Greek restaurant!!!!" ? It sounds random but would be a nice thing to send to my colleagues when we have to go there ... it's an inside joke we have :)

Thanks man!

mike_russell8 karma

This will be fun. I'm working on it!

ISwag25 karma

Great ! Many thanks ! :) You can short it to "Today we're going to the Greeks" as well. Whatever sounds better. :)

mike_russell13 karma

How about both versions? ;)

Coming right up in ~1 minute here: http://youtu.be/aP7mK8IABzQ

ISwag22 karma

Man you rock! Thanks so much! You are great :) I love it !

mike_russell3 karma

You are most welcome. Enjoy!

motherstep11 karma

You are an amazing man.

I'd love a jingle with my username in it. I am a mash-up DJ so anything along those lines would be excellent. Thank you.

I'll also ask a question so it doesn't like I'm after one thing - how did you get into the job you're in?

mike_russell12 karma

Working on this now motherstep - nice request!

To answer your question I've always loved radio jingles from since I can remember. It was listening to the jingles on Capital FM in London that first made me go "wow, I need to know how that's done". Then through some self tuition and the help of great mentors at the first radio stations I worked at I managed to make a career out of jingle creation. I love what I do and that's what encourages me to keep on creating more :)

aMANescape12 karma

I love that you exist

mike_russell7 karma

Thank YOU!

motherstep5 karma

Good, self tuition is where it's at. It's nice to have people teach you but to really carve your own style you just have to plug away by yourself and do what feels good.

Thanks for doing it, by the way.

mike_russell12 karma

Yep, trying and testing different effects, creating your own style. That's were it's at for sure! Well, motherstep, you were second in so here's my second custom jingle and video especially for you ;)


motherstep7 karma

This is amazing, a step-by-step of the making of it. Thank you very much.

mike_russell5 karma

Glad you like it!

skaschmidt10 karma

My band is disbanding after 10 years. We're called Son of Dad and we play ska music. Any chance of a jingle so we could inform our fans we're done? Thank you.

mike_russell3 karma

I wish you the very best for the future and hope you enjoy this creation ;)


nottinylil7 karma

That's quite a specific job you have there. Were you a child when you had the idea that you wanted to be a pro radio jingle creator? Or did it just stem off of audio producer? Did you get the idea from watching television, music or what have you?

As for a jingle, I've finally began to try and dedicate myself to becoming a more effective person at my education, to study and revise plenty everyday. Right now I'm just procrastinating though, and that's no good. I'd appreciate it if you made this jingle for me. Thanks :>

I had some fun with autotune on this one ;)

mike_russell8 karma

It was listening to music radio that first got me in to making radio jingles. I always loved the way the sounded in between the songs. The deep powerful voice overs, the singing bits, the comedy and art involved in branding a radio station and giving it a unique sound. That's what inspired me along with my love for tweaking audio :)

OK, I'm going to have some fun with your jingle request - standby ;)

mike_russell6 karma

Tomboston7 karma

Hello there. My name is Tom Boston and I would love a jingle for my community radio show I host.

'You are listening to Tom Boston on NE1FM 102.5'

Thank you!

mike_russell11 karma

I LOVE community radio! You can be sure this is on my to do list!

Tomboston6 karma

mike_russell15 karma

Go ahead, use this on the air, let me know when you do: http://youtu.be/2ZiBBUbCOWw


mike_russell7 karma

Thank you for all the posts to my AMA.

I'm working through them in order. I will not be considering any further jingle requests from this point in time onwards. I will however be happy to answer any further questions you may have.

Let me know and enjoy!

Mr_A5 karma

Yeah, one that goes like this:

If you're not real good, no you've been real bad,
Just be glad you're keepin' both your hands,
And you're holed up in the niicest,
Yes absolutely fiinest...

We got chains in the walls,
And hard stone floors,
What do you want?
You can't want more!

Except a rack, don't forget that,
And a spike to poke 'em with,
Barrel of water out of reach,
Croc or two underneath

And more...
All in Bob's Dungeons!

mike_russell7 karma

Something with a spooky theme? Sure, can do!

Mr_A3 karma

Well, actually I was thinking jaunty.

mike_russell9 karma

Jaunty is fine with me! It'll be live in ~5 minutes here:


jenny713 karma

I have often thought this would be such a cool job how do get into this line of work? And does it pay the bills

mike_russell6 karma

I started out at hospital radio, then did virtually every single job (including on the air) at local radio stations. I created jingles for these stations in my spare time. It's something I love to do. I had some wonderful teachers and experimented myself.

Now, I run an online business along with my wife making jingles. I feel blessed to be able to do exactly what I love each and every day.

djmaver1ck2 karma

This is too cool! Can you create a jingle that I can use as my voice mail message?

mike_russell3 karma

Sure. Just type the script and give any direction you'd like. Thanks!

TheShrimpStripper2 karma

Could you make a jingle like "Liberation day from Trolls: live free without Trolls"

How do you warm up before recording sessions?

mike_russell4 karma

I can do for you!

I like to sing the vowels of the alphabet, gargle water, eat a green apple and even stand up occasionally for better impact.

mike_russell2 karma

Here it is for you with a little chat on warming up before sessions at the start too. Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGwYSLyhfFw

Totsean2 karma

Can you do something for a small community.

Totseans: Home to the Finest Human Specimen.

That's the tag line, make it satire or go wild with in.

I will use the end product in videos and will credit your name and channel as well.


mike_russell7 karma

This one is for you: http://youtu.be/QRERCkU-eG8

Live in ~1 minute - hope I got the name correct - enjoy!

Thank you! Could you provide a phonetic spelling for Totseans please?
