K-Tel Memories

There are K-Tel fans all over the world. If you grew up in the 60s and 70s, K-Tel may have been an important part of your childhood as well.  You may have some memories of specific K-Tel albums or specific songs or bands that you first became acquainted with through K-Tel.

If that is the case, maybe you would want to share your K-Tel Memories.

Introducing K-Tel Memories, featuring K-Tel fans from all over the world sharing their memories of K-Tel Records.  These episodes will be aired on Adventures in Vinyl every so often.

What makes these episodes special is that they are created by you. All you need to do is record your memories about K-Tel. They could be about specific albums, specific songs or bands. Then send your memory to ktel@vinylvoyageradio.com

We will edit your episode and play the songs that you mention.

Criteria:

1) You need to be able to record audio files.
2) In total, your memory should be anywhere between 8-15 minutes. You can send your file as an mp3. Make sure it is at 128kps and at 41000 hz (These are standard settings. See below for more info on how to record audio)
3) Contain references to specific K-Tel albums, artists and songs so that the episode can be constructed with 15 or more tracks to play.

For example, in the first episode of K-Tel Memories, Terry sent me a 12 minute audio file. This file was of him talking about albums and specific Canadian bands that he remembered from K-Tel. In the end, there were 16 tracks played on the episode. You can listen to that episode here.

If you have any questions, please ask. we would love to feature your K-Tel Memories!

Note about recordings:  Obviously, we want the best audio as possible. This can be achieved quite easily, even if you do not have expensive audio equipment. Most phones have voice apps that you can use to create good sounding audio. Just be sure that when you are recording your audio, you do it in a quiet location without much background noise. Believe it or not, one of the best places to record audio is in a closet filled with clothes. The clothes help soundproof the space and absorb any echo-like effects.
