AiV 50th Episode: Time Machine!

Back in 2010, I opened up the boxes of records I had in storage in my basement and was taken back to my childhood and to simpler days. Among the albums, of course, were countless K-tel compilations. I wanted to share this with the world and in 2011, Vinyl Voyage Radio was born. In January of that year, the very first episode of Adventures in Vinyl was released. It featured the first K-Tel album that I purchased: Music Power from 1974.

And now, we are at our 50th episode!

In honor of our 50th episode, I decided to revisit an idea I had a few years ago. What if we created our own K-Tel compilation? There are songs that have punctuated the K-Tel catalog throughout the 70s. These songs were a big part of my childhood.  Last year I posted an idea: If K-tel would release a new album featuring iconic songs from their catalog, what would go on that album? My response was Time Machine.

Originally, my version had just 14 songs. For the 50th episode of Adventures in Vinyl, I decided to go all out. "20 Original Hits, Original Stars!" The album on the show will be comprised of recordings from K-tel Albums between 1972 and 1980. The Best of K-Tel.

Oh, I even made a retro commercial, too:  

The episode Premieres on September 2, 2017 at 12:30 pm (Central). Hear it throughout the month of September.
