They should do "WJML The Music Station" and a "JML" jingle between alternating tracks.
Assuming the master reels are still in the old building, they're probably in rough shape. Who was the JML voice guy? He probably did the liners and ID's for WMUS as well. Did PAMS do the jingles? I don't remember.
If you're talking about the voice behind the time bombs at the top of the hour and the 1/4 hour voicers, it was Lyle Dean from Chicago.

JML had both PAMS and JAM jingles over the years. When I got there in 1979 we were using the JAM jingles. Then we went to the hideous "whispers" for a while in 1981. We went back to the PAMS jingles in 1982 because they wouldn't let us use the JAM jingles.

I assume "kager" is Mark Kage?

There was a close connection between Chicago Radio and News and WJML. John Harrington the original owner did news at WBBM and possibly some other stations. Lyle Dean was at WLS and WGN.
