Tribute To TM Founder, Tom Merriman Set
July 28, 2008 at 5:04 AM (PT)
A tribute to TOM MERRIMAN, the legendary composer best known for his work creating radio station jingles and as the co-founder of TM PRODUCTIONS in 1967, will be held on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13th in DALLAS.
MERRIMAN wrote and recorded the first radio jingle [for KLIF] ever recorded in DALLAS. He wrote countless commercials in the early days of the business that are still recognizable and remembered, today, including recording the voice on his classic, "I’m OTTO, the ORKIN Man."
A little known fact on MERRIMAN’s bio is that he was one of the original owners of KVIL Radio. Legendary local DJ, RON CHAPMAN, who will emcee the tribute, describes MERRIMAN as the guy who, " writes musical arrangements like LINCOLN did the GETTYSBURG ADDRESS ... on the back of an envelope ... and they are equally historic!".
Friends and clients from the world over are expected to attend. Seating is limited, so please reserve your seats today. Find out more at www.TomMerrimanTribute.com.
