Avatar 5:06pm djsheilab:

I set my clock for this. Always a treat to hear what you've got cooked up for us!
  5:07pm Listener Robert:

Toy pianos, I meant. Then I grew up & my parents made me take lessons on a "real" piano, but I wasn't good or motivated, and quit as soon as they let me, which was years. They say you'll regret quitting, but I never did. I just left music to those who had the aptitude for producing, rather than just listening to, it.
  5:07pm listener Gary:

I can't wait to hear your voice! It has been sooooo long

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm Doug Schulkind:

Monica and Sunday evenings, what pair! So so great to hear you on the air, Mo!
Avatar 6:27pm dale:

the thing with the k-tel comps is that they all had about a dozen songs per side when a regular l.p. had 5 or 6. how'd they do that? and is that why they sounded like crap?
  6:27pm ScottC:

Wow Monica! What a great set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yeah - it's...if I thot hearing 'Seasons in the Sun' too much was bad - I had no idea what the Pop40 would become I guess is my point - but the Music Industry & everything else are so different 40 years later - there's no point to this Rabbit hole....
Avatar 6:28pm deanland:

K-Tel preceded Casey Kasem and the record company loss leader compilations. It also served as party music back when the record changer was the in thing. No platters dropping, minimal time space between songs. And all hit music. Tacky though it seemed, it was in fact superb programming and packaging.

barbara mandrell! she and her sisters were poster girl material at spencer gifts.
  Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Walt:

@dale - I think they compress the heck out of the songs (not much low or high frequency) so the grooves on the record can be a lot narrower and they can fit more songs per side. Something like that anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm SeanG:

mandrell and then the judd sisters

SOOO good to hear your voice again Monica - you are missed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

K-Tel intro'd the idea of Compilations (or promoted it) - which made making them w/ Cassettes & cherry-picking your faves seem the next natural thing then. Perhaps DIY & Sampling even devolve from there next a little...
