The Office, This Ain't

This is a rerun from last year, but I wanted to bring it back tonight because it goes so well with the next post. Back in ye olden days, like the fifties, the people who worked together actually hung out and did things. Sometimes it was bowling or a softball team, or maybe bridge. But sometimes it was a chorus. And sometimes those groups made records. And sometimes those records survived the years, and someone in Florida would find them at a thrift store, buy them, and share them with all of you through the magic of the internet. So, here's a record made by a chorus of people employed by some company named Kenyon & Eckhardt. I think it's pretty neat, and I hope you will, too. Please download and enjoy Merry Christmas With The KE-Notes (Olmstead Sound Studios OSS-2267, 1959). Did I mention it's on green vinyl? And it's only got one side? Will wonders never cease?

Kenyon & Eckhardt was a big ad agency, later to become part of Bozell Jacobs, then rolled up into True North and now Interpublic. At least I think this is how it went. Very complicated.
