Identifying WBTW news theme 1994
« on: February 06, 2024, 07:06:52 PM »
I'd like help identifying this library track used by WBTW (Florence/Myrtle Beach, SC CBS affiliate) for their newscasts around 1994/1995.
https://youtu.be/q7oJRcpAUcM?si=FSECJPxfHXa6C2NF&t=1887

I thought it was some kind of proper news package or custom theme, but I quickly learned it's probably a library track after I heard it in this radio ID from 2022:
https://tophour.com/audio/Norfolk-Virginia%20Beach%20VA/fm0973hd2_2022-03_wgh-fm-hd2_cmaxwell.mp3

My assumption is that it's from one of the retired FirstCom albums released in the early 90s, since WBTW used other FirstCom cuts around this time.

This is another variation used on the 11pm news open that sounds like it could be from the same album: https://youtu.be/Z5lmtXWUjaM?si=pO8_7Uy9k9YN9wra&t=1783

Any help would be appreciated!
