I was a writer/producer/instrumentalist/singer at Seacoast Sound for many years. Eventually became Production Manager then Director of Operations. Next to performing in a variety of bands, these were some of the most productive, musically satisfying, and fun years of my life. To this day I still work regularly both live and in the studio with some of the former company principals (Dale Baglo - former Creative Director and Morry Stearns - former Musical Director) on a regular basis, here in Victoria, BC. In Seacoast’s heyday, we grossed millions of dollars annually and placed jingles, soundtracks, and original songs all over the world (Canada, the USA, Great Britain, Japan, and New Zealand, to name a few). I’ll do my best to answer any questions. Cheers, -Duncan (Meiklejohn)

Do you have any demo's with original jingles for any of the big advertisers during 80's or 90's that you could share?

Cheers.

Would love to hear jingles.

Do you have anything in the way of old classic C-FAX 1070 jingles? One in particular was used for Barry Bowman and it went "wakey wakey" was used for many years.

Hello Duncan. I was the originator of this post back in September 2018. When in radio sales, the company that I worked for always recommended Seacoast jingles to accounts when they were inquiring about getting a jingle for their store or company. We had a lot of your jingles on our stations CKNX AM and FM in Ontario.

I would love to hear any demo tapes that you had for chain stores, malls etc. I had a demo tape years ago but can't seem to find it anywhere. Did Seacoast do jingles for radio station call letters?

It is a shame that CHUM folded down the operation after they purchased the company. To this day I still think that Seacoast was the best in it's era. I was always so glad when our radio competitor was pumping jingles from Texas and I was able to put on Seacoasts demo tape for a client that was far superior. And they were surprised to find out it was a Canadian company too, and price wise very reasonable!

You must be very proud of the work that you and your colleagues produced at Seacoast. I know your jingles certainly helped our station and our customers sound so much better on the radio!
