WDAF using the Fox ’98 package

Recommended Posts

Sorry for the phone recording, it was weird hearing this old package during the bumper instead of beyond, WDAF has never used the package in the past to my knowledge. Gave me a KVRR flashback

Woah. That's pretty interesting to me. I think WDAF thought that was the football cut from its FOX Sports NFL package instead. Lol.

Wow, that's really cool to hear that package in use again!

I had difficulty picking up all the audio in that clip, but we usually add music live, and usually from the hard drive. I've seen plenty of old production music CDs down there, though.

Maybe it was freely distributed to a bunch of Fox stations back in the day, which is why a lot of smaller-market affiliates used it? That would be my guess.

It certainly has the same tempo to the percussion as Fox 98--I can say that much.   And if I had to guess, it is Fox 98.

Yes, it sounds like one of the headline bed cuts.

Using headphones, Listen closely at the :17 mark... you hear the squeak that News Music Now puts in their tracks....


Listening to the headline theme on NMN, you hear the squeak at the :17 mark. http://www.newsmusicnow.com/player.php?id=2085

 

Either Fox got short on time and was desperate to use that track so they pulled it off of NMN or this is some kind of resync.

Oh I heard it, a few times. They totally lifted that track off News Music Now.
