Attention K-mart Shoppers!

“We have a blue-light special down in aisle 8…”

Step back into K-mart in May of 1988 by listening to K-mart’s in-store muzak complete with the in-store commercials preserved for all posterity. You remember K-mart, don’t you? Founded in 1899 as the SS Kresge Corporation in Garden City, Michigan. I think it is still in business.

It’s a pity the music from the 60’s and 70’s isn’t available, when I was shopping there as a child.

This is a digitized version of an in-store reel to reel tape that was played within a Kmart store in May 1988.  Amazingly, Kmart continued to play reel to reels until the late 1980’s when cassettes were put into production.

This is a genuine Tape-A-Thon product and the recording contains both sides, which are 1.5 hours long each, totaling 3 hours.

And this is a Muzak / instrumental fan’s dream.  Many, many incredible instrumentals of well known songs and ads every three recordings.

Special Thanks to Tom Schwarzrock (Zephryrhills, FL) who personally provided this very rare tape to me so that it can be added to the archive collection.
