Ken R. Deutsch has completed his first new book in almost 20 years, "Jingles and More." And it's available now as part of the Ken R. Book Bundle Bonanza from JingleSamplers.com!
For over 35 years, Ken has been a writer for "Radio World." In those years he penned many stories about the scoundrels, lunatics, and just plain egomaniacs he met while working for top-40 giant WOHO(AM), and other less prestigious radio outlets. They have been collected here along with many stories and reference articles about the jingle industry, with an emphasis on the 1960s through the 1980s.
You also get Ken's general humor articles about life in these crazy United States. None of these articles has appeared in any of his previous books. Check out Ken's interviews with the likes of JAM/PAMS president Jon Wolfert, WABC's Johnny Donovan, singer Paul Anka, Ron Hicklin (leader of the Los Angeles vocal group), funnymen Soupy Sales and Moe Howard of the Three Stooges, and much more!
We're also including some jingle goodies you can listen to! Ken spent months researching and assembling a massive three-part "Jingles and More" sampler. Each of the three parts is about a half-hour long, which means you get almost 90 minutes of audio in all, narrated by Ken Deutsch, detailing all the lesser-known jingle producers (everyone that is not PAMS, JAM or TM) and providing multiple samples of their work.
Also, as part of the audio bonuses -- which are all in 320 kbps MP3 format and will NOT be posted online -- you get a recent phone interview with Ken conducted by radio personality and jingle collector Morgan Cunningham.
But wait -- there's more!
Ken Deutsch wrote four highly-acclaimed books in the early 2000s: "The Jingle Book," "The Second Jingle Book," "Up and Down the Dial," and "Growing Up Glencoe." These were all worldwide top-sellers in paperback, but since they have been out-of-print for years, we've had requests to make them available again to a whole new generation of jingle collectors and radio fans.
These four classic books -- plus the new "Jingles and More" -- are provided in eBook form. For your reading and dancing pleasure, each has been put into PDF format and you'll be happy to know that no special eBook reader, such as a Kindle, is required. For the first time, all are available in an easy-to-read format for your laptop, desktop, phone or tablet!
Ken R's Book Bundle Bonanza is specially priced at $39 for May 2021 ONLY. Next month, the price goes up.
