In case you haven’t heard, this year marks the 60th Anniversary of our beloved BC Clark Jingle!
Since 1956, the Anniversary Sale Jingle has marked the beginning of the Holidays for thousands of Oklahomans. We’ve been told over the years that our Jingle has woven its way into the Holiday traditions of thousands of families across the state and around the world.
For many of you, the Christmas season does not officially begin until you hear the familiar melody. We receive emails, Facebook messages, and phone calls every year asking us when the Anniversary Sale Jingle is going to hit the airwaves.
Whether you live out of state, or you just don’t want to wait to catch it on the TV or radio, you can get your Jingle fix at www.bcclarkjingle.com anytime.
Wait. You didn’t know that The Jingle has its own website? No problem!
We’ll give you the overview here, so that when you’re ready to travel out to the website, you’ll be well prepared. There’s a lot to discover once you get there, and we’d hate for you to miss out on some of the features.
A Digital Stroll Down Memory Lane.
By far the most popular feature of the Jingle website is the audio player at the top of the home page. You can click the play button and listen to the radio version that started all of this craziness!
A Chance to Bring the Jingle Home
To celebrate the Jingle turning 60, we teamed up with Reed & Barton to bring you an exclusive Jingle Musical Snow Globe. You can read about the globe and find information on how to purchase by following the link on the Jingle home page. Celebrate this Christmas tradition for years to come – whether you’re in Oklahoma or on the other side of the globe.
Time for History Class!
Did you know that one line was taken out of the original version of The Jingle in order to make it fit radio time restrictions? You didn’t know that?!? Well then you’d better head to the “History” section on the home page and brush up on your facts. While there, you can listen to the original version of The Jingle in it entirety.
A Place to Tell Your Story
By far our favorite section, at the bottom of the home page is a chance to share your personal memories and stories about the BC Clark Jingle. We’ve had amazing responses from people all over the world.
This section of the website gives you the opportunity to share your experiences with others and even upload a photo if you’d like. You can also spend some time reading other stories that have been shared throughout the years. All of us here at BC Clark really enjoy reading through these stories every year!
Saving The Best for Last!
And if all of this wasn’t enough, the website footer is FILLED with Jingle extras. (That’s the blue bar down at the bottom of the page for all of you “non-techy” people.)
You can download The Jingle ring tone to your smart phone, watch videos of shoppers singing The Jingle from as far back as 1983, view old Jingle commercials, download and print The Jingle sheet music, and even hit a link to view The Jingle’s Facebook and Twitter pages!
