Big thanks to John Rabold for rescuing some carts from a DUMPSTER that were WIRE jingles.  Not exactly sure of the vintage, but probably the period when 1430 went back to WIRE as a country station after its early '80's foray into ac/pop.  Also a big thanks to Art Baker (Bouncin' Bill's son) for converting the carts to mp3 at his studio.  These are now on the sound archive page.
Don Nelson, the V.P. & General Manager of WIRE during its successful launch and rocket-to-the-top success as a country station sends these fascinating articles from Billboard Magazine and the Indianapolis News and its radio-tv editor R.K. Shull.
