Swing the Jingle

Swing the Jingle!


I wrote a fairly extensive blog post for Coca-Cola Journey which gave detailed history of the 1965 -1974 campaign to "Swing the Jingle."  This innovative music campaign featured more that 100 of the top musical artist of the day.  The article for Journey was getting too long, so we had to cut the list of musicians.  Since I did all the research, I wanted to share it on this site.  Make sure to read the full story on Journey here, and see how many of these artist you can remember.  ^TR
