** Almost every single goddamn Long Distance Dedication ever on American Top 40 was a TearJerker. There was a reason This Troper hated that part of the show as a kid.
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDYK2H0ldbo Maybe you would like this, then]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6gPSSYxex0 Or possibly this?]]. It seems that Kasem himself hated the Long Distance dedications for that reason, especially when someone lost a pet. Kasem, a vegan, loves animals and is a member of several animal protection societies.

* TearJerker/AdventuresInOdyssey



* Whit's departure in the ''AdventuresInOdyssey'' episode "Gone..." is often regarded as a tear-jerker on its own, especially for younger audiences. However, when you know the full story behind the episode, and indeed one particular scene, it hits even harder: Since [[CharacterOutlivesActor Whit's actor had died]], his few lines were all lifted from previous episodes, save for his heartfelt farewell speech which Eugene and Bernard see on tape about a week after the fact. ''That'' came from a real-life appearance of Hal Smith himself, thanking everyone for the cards sent to him after his wife died. Whatta guy.
** Something similar much more recently when voice actor Walker Edmiston died. There was a special tribute track to him on the disk set.
** AdventuresInOdyssey really is good at {{Tear Jerker}}s. Another one that comes to mind is [[spoiler:Mitch's "death"]] in "Plan B", as well as the scene where Mitch and Connie [[spoiler:decide that they really aren't mature enough to get married and call their wedding off... the night before they were supposed to get married]]. Another would be Katrina's father's [[spoiler: death, and how Katrina and Eugene were married quietly by his bedside, because he was too sick to leave the hospital.]]
** The episode when Whit tells Lucy the story of Horatio J. Spafford, who lost his son to an illness, a vast amount of property to the Great Chicago Fire, and then his four daughters to a shipwreck. The catharsis comes as the episode ends with the RealLife scene of Spafford sailing over the coordinates where his daughters died, praying, and saying the words that he would eventually put into the song, which is sung by a choir at the very end, "It is well with my soul."

* Almost every single goddamn Long Distance Dedication ever on American Top 40. There was a reason This Troper hated that part of the show as a kid.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDYK2H0ldbo Maybe you would like this, then]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6gPSSYxex0 Or possibly this?]].
* In CBC's Wiretap, one episode in Season 3, entitled "A Secret History of Famous Friends", told a bizarre story of Barney Rubble accidentally running over Fred Flintstone's pet Dino, and how Fred and Barney's friendship begins to fall apart afterward. Eventually, they make up and have a heart-to-heart talk. Afterwards, an actual musical number from ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' plays, in which Fred and Barney sing about how they'll always be friends. If you don't believe me, you can listen to the episode [[http://www.cbc.ca/wiretap/index.html?copy-audio here.]] (Season 3, "A Secret History of Famous Friends").
* Terry Wogan's final show, today (Friday, December 18th). After having been on BBC Radio since the 60s, and entertaining generations of people, it is time for him to finally leave Radio. And after two and a half hours of a truly heartbreaking broadcast (Old, slow songs. Presents from Sarah Kennedy, John Marsh and Charlie Nove, even a special message from the PrimeMinister). It's clear that by the end, he's fighting back tears. So he finishes on a truly [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming]] message to his viewers. Before leaving Radio forever. Ken Bruce (Who came on afterward) announced that it really was "The End of an Era" for broadcasting. After 40 years of waking up to Terry Wogan's dulcet tones in the morning. He shall never be there again. Never there to share a smile, a laugh, or a tear with his beloved listeners. He shall be missed.
* Of ''all'' things, TheRickyGervaisShow manages one in one 2002 episode. Steve and Ricky inform Karl live on air that he only scored one GCSE (Karl never went to collect his results), which was an E in History. The kicker is that Karl had actually sat at least 4 or 5 other exams, but had forgotten to register for them, thus discounting them. His reaction when told this is actually quite affecting, and even more so, it is one of the only times when Steve and Ricky ''don't'' take the piss and offer to help him resit History and [[HeartwarmingMoments remind him that he's done well for himself and he doesn't need the grades]].

* Casey Kasem always used to do "Long Distance Dedications" on his "American Top 40" radio countdown shows. One from the late 1970s was particularly moving; it was one from a young woman to her older brother, who'd ran away awhile back. The woman hoped that her beloved, much-missed brother would hear what she had to say and come back home. The song she decided to dedicate to her brother was "This One's for You" by Barry Manilow.
