My favorite jingle was "Zing (Sing?) the GIANT...with fifty thousand watts
of living sound....W (snap) BZ'

Speaking of WBZ slogans ... and jingles from long ago, how about "Time is of
the essence, get it now, on W [snap] BZ, W [snap ] BZ, W [snap] BZ.
Or something like that, back in the 60's maybe?  Lodged in my head somewhere
all these years.

This was on WBZ's Wikipedia page. Not that I believe everything I read. The
time line looks correct. I think AT40 ended on WBZ late in 1990.

......" ,[57] but listener complaints[58] led the station to return Brudnoy
to the air by the end of September.[59] It was also late in
1985 that American Top 40 moved to WBZ from WROR (98.5 FM, now WBZ-FM),
remaining on WBZ for the rest of its years as a full-service AC station,
around the same time WBZ's most famous slogan, "The Spirit of New England"
(made famous by a 1987 JAM Creative Productions jingle package of the same
name), was introduced."
