Hot Mixed Tapes!

Post by Dee » Wed Oct 21, 2015 9:37 am

Attention Kmart and all other shoppers for this "blue light special"!

Fun story that hit the U.S. national news: Recently, it came to "light" that a former Kmart employee, Mark Davis, had saved years of cassettes with easy-listening music that had been played for shoppers in Kmart stores from the ’80s and ’90s. (Kmart is a big box, retail store chain in the U.S.) Mark is a bit of an audiophile and, after learning that the store would toss their used music cassettes in the trash, he began salvaging the tapes for his own collection and later digitized them. In September of this year, he uploaded this "Kmart" music to Internet Archive. Of course, Glen Campbell is part of this special collection, possibly singing "Blue Christmas". lol
