How much things have changed in such a short time.
A propos of music and shopping, I offer:
With the timeless "Music to Buy Toasters By".
One of my favorite internet moments was tracking down an mp3 to the old Disneyland Peoplemover attraction.
The pre-recorded announcer said things to this effect. Listen here:
These are MP3s of muzak played in Kresge stores (K-Mart) from the early 1960s.
Can't say I was overly fond of the throwback 80s music it played or the cheesy product ads after hearing the same ones for weeks on end. This was 15+ years after the 80s as well. Thanks to this discussion, I unfortunately have them stuck in my head once again after years of suppressing them :(
It was actually a pretty decent job for where I lived and for being in high school (with above average high school pay). However, I never ever liked the radio system or the pre-recorded announcer.
