Time for the third in our Ken R jingle sampler series; see part one and part two if you don’t know what the bloody hell I’m up to. I’m posting two samplers today – The Big One, and The Big Two, two hours of fantastic 60s and 70s PAMS jingles:

The Big One (99MB ZIP, password: kenr)
The Big Two (101MB ZIP, password: kenr)
