    I just heard Ed and Mike on a station promo for 105.5 WDHA here in northern Jersey. Though I haven't been listening to the station very long, it's still the first Ed/Mike promo duo I can remember hearing anywhere. Anybody ever heard an Ed/Mike station promo?
    Any other northern Jersey VHers know how long the station's been using this one?

    Just now they played it in front of "I'll Wait", and with my head in the Forums, it surprised me a little so my recollection of how it went may be a bit off:
    Ed starts with the standard "This is Eddie Van Halen," then Mike comes in with "And Michael Anthony." Then Ed says "And you're listening to W-D" - then Mike fills in with the other two call letters, "H-A."
    Then the two of 'em seemed to start goofing with the rest of the "New Jersey's best rock" and some other stuff. By the last part they were both laughing.

    Since I haven't heard Ed speak recently, it was tough to tell when they might've recorded the promo. That said, he sounded younger than I imagine he does now.
    As for Mike, his voice sounded pretty close to the way it did a few weeks back when I heard his radio interview. That's not too surprising to me - it doesn't seem like Mikey's aged in 20 years!

    I worked at a radio station when Balance came out..........we had a similar promo recorded with Mike and Ed. We played it as a "breaker" into VH tunes as well.......I am sure this is from the Balance days.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    In 1996 Ed and AL made a promo for 98.5 station here in Mexico and they started goofing around and instead of saying "this is owr new tune Me Wise Magic and you are listening to Radioactive" they said "this is owr new tune Me wise Magic and you are listening to XXX Extesy" and laughed a lot they sounded so cool they were having a great time.
    GREAT MEMEORIE.
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    Station promos... Those were the days.

    I remember when I bought a 'best of' album of the Beach Boys they had a few station promos thrown in and it was cool. Hopefully, when VH opens the archives and releases its rarities, it also throws in some promos like this.
    http://www.vhlinks.com/vbforums/images/avatars/michael3.jpg

    "You are the McCarthy of this board. The witch burner." - strungout, on yours truly

    "Only Eddymon would claim victory during a FOUR game losing streak." - OLO

    "Did I not say, 'I think we should shoot him!' I did. Double rainbow on this end. I require a high five. Out."- track 5, on the delicate art of banning

    "If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire..."
