ABOUT CREATIVE RADIO JINGLESThe Team Behind Your Creative Jingle
CREATIVE RADIO JINGLES – OUR ROOTS
Creative Radio started in 1994. Five guys that all used to be in broadcast together at one point had a bigger vision for themselves and started a jingle company. Since then we’ve grown, but still stayed relatively small. In fact, most of our 11-person staff have been involved with jingles, radio and advertising since 1989. We have created literally thousands of jingles for business’s large and small, in major cities and small towns across the country for years.
Greg Armstrong, Partner & Musician for Creative Radio
Greg is our head writer and a partner in the company since it’s very beginning. He is basically our very own Charlie Sheen without the baggage! He plays a multitude of instruments with piano being his main instrument. He has been playing professionally for nearly 30 years.
He traveled the world with Bobby Vee (60’s teen idol) in the 90’s and was privileged to share the stage with Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Andrew Lloyd Weber…but that wasn’t enough to have him knighted Sir Gregory, so he decided to keep writing jingles instead.
He played with a local Minneapolis group, G.B. Leighton, for several years and then started his own group in 2006 “The Fabulous Armadillos” after adopting his daughter in 2005. He has written more than 1500 jingles that are played all over the country. He is married and lives in Minneapolis, MN with his wife Sandy, daughter Aili and dog Buddy.
