The Ultimate Team for Radio Commercial Production
We’ve acquired an enormous wealth of knowledge during forty years of radio commercial production. Established in 1983 – as John Mountford Studios – the JMS Group is almost as old as the UK’s commercial radio sector itself. We were pioneers of the modern radio commercial production process. We were using ISDN for recording remote voiceover studio sessions and the delivery of finished ads to stations as early as 1988. Several years ago we passed the milestone of 100,000 ads produced, arguably making us one of the most experienced radio commercial production companies in the UK.
Built For Efficiency
When JMS began, there were only two ways to get a radio commercial to a station: Royal Mail Special Delivery, or a courier with a fast car! Our deadlines were fixed to the immovable time of the last mail collection, or the daily 4.30PM arrival of ‘Graham The Taxi’. We optimised the radio commercial production process for efficiency, ensuring we were always ready and able to deliver same-day turnaround of radio advertising packages, from taking the client’s brief to mixing the final ad. Forty years later, we still maintain efficient workflows for rapid radio commercial production services.
We’re No Dinosaur
We’re proud be one of the country’s oldest radio commercial production companies, but we take equal pride in remaining forward-looking. Since 1983, the commercial radio sector has transformed beyond recognition and we’ve always stayed ahead of the curve. The traditional local radio advertising campaign is now part of a far wider audio ad landscape. We refer to our productions as ‘radio commercials’, yet the majority of our work is now delivered to listeners’ devices via addressable audio networks such as DAX, or as audio ads on Spotify, Alexa audio ads, or as podcast ad insertions.
