Album Cover for KJR Music Compilation Vol. 1

I bought this album when KJR promoted it on-air. I believe they were selling at Valu-Mart, the same store where we picked up the KJR Fabulous 50 Survey each week.

KJR 16 All American Hits – Various Artists [1967] Along Comes Mary – Association, Western Union – Five Americans, Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron – Royal Guardsmen, I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry – B.J. Thomas, Summer In The City – Lovin’ Spoonful, Gloria – Them, Cherry Cherry – Neil Diamond, See You In September – Happenings, Hanky Panky – Tommy James & Shondells, Hey Joe – Leaves, Pushin’ Too Hard – Seeds, You Turn Me On – Ian Whitcomb, Land Of 1000 Dances – Cannibal & Headhunters, The Witch – Sonics, Leader Of The Pack – Shangri-Las, Dirty Water – Standells.

There was a Volume 2. I didn’t buy that one. The reason may have been that the songs on the album didn’t appeal to me, or I did not have the cash (allowance) at the time.

  1. Check youtube for “Topsy II” by Cozy Cole and “Teen Beat” by Sandy Nelson from 1959…that one by Sandy is probably what you recall.

  2. is there a way to find out about a record that was played over and over on the radio in 1959 by a solo drummer. the name of the record or the drummer?

    1. If you had a clue as to who the drummer is, like Sandy Nelson, who was popular at the time, or could give us some audio of you playing the tune…

  3. I liked the liner notes on volume 2. Pat O’Day writes about the former KJR jocks who have moved on to bigger and better things. I now wish I would have bought that. I got a kick when he wrote “Lee Perkins, 1959 till 1965. WAS for a time , P.D. at WIFE, Indianapolis. Perkins at the time was a salesmen and weekend jock at KOL. Then when it came to DICK CURTIS, 1960 till1967, whereabouts, unknown. Curtis at the time was the P.D. and afternoon driver at KOL. Then he wrote the current lineup. Lan Roberts 6 till 9 a.m. Lan had just left for KOL. When Pat wrote about Buzz Barr, he mentioned that Buzz used to work at another station in town that we cannot mentioned the name of because Buzz does not remember what the name of that station was. Those were great liner notes.

    1. KJR & KOL jock swapping happened often. Ratings mattered and maybe a little extra money to switch teams. Both stations were stepping stones to larger markets.
