The early jingles on Capital were used for quite a few years. The main theme and a few other cuts were performed by Blue Mink, a band who were in the charts during the late 60's and early 70's with songs such as Melting Pot and Banner Man. They were written by Roger Cook with Roger Greenaway and orchestrated by George Martin. The female singer with Blue Mink (Madeline Bell) also sung on the original Radio Caroline jingles. The main theme is very slightly different in the middle from the one used on air. The Swingle Singers were responsible for the acapella cuts plus a few others. Then there were a few jingles from Christopher Rainbow. The 'Capital (clap) 1-9-4 Hello ooo', 'Well this is 194-How are you?' and 'Grab a little piece of heaven with Roger Scott from 3-7' jingles are by David Dundas. The 'open every window, open every door' jingles are by Sue Manning and were used from about 1978 onwards.

For any frustrated downloaders wondering what the Top 2 were on Roger Scott's Capital Countdown: 1 was the Beatles with Yesterday and 2 was Barry White, You See The Trouble With Me.

The 1982 Sue Manning package features the vocals of Mike Smith who was the vocalist with The Dave Clark 5.
