Re: [ARSCLIST] Muzak is bankrupt

For the 1963-4 World's Fair, I made a 3-3/4 ips 14" background music tape for a reversable Scully that was used for background music in various venues. Mine was at the daily fashion show. I also ran their PA every day- no days off- for 6 months.

Some jobs have different benefits than others.

For a different job, I made another tape for use in, of all things, an elevator.

I remember a K-Mart in Tacoma (the first one in this area)

several 7" tape decks behind the customer service counter
that played the background music.  I don't know if the
music was licensed from Muzak, but it definitely wasn't
piped in; it was played from within the store.   FWIW.

One of the Naxos family of recordings is a collection of 'soft classics' for storecast. IIRC, they are sold in sets of ten or twenty CDs. At Klaus Heyman's suggestion, I made an MP3 CD-ROM to provide uninterrupted play so no one would have to attend to the player throughout the day.

I've no idea whether the CD-ROM version was ever issued. Of course, Klaus had all rights to the recordings and they were licensed for storecast use.
