A Lot to Process

Muzak Master Recording

Muzak Master Recording

I think it’s time to take a breath… and see where we’ve been and where we’re going with this music archive voyage we’re on. In past blogs we’ve explored Muzak’s early years, looked into the contributions of our founder, Gen. George Squier, and legendary Muzak producer, Ben Selvin. We’ve visited our earliest recording sessions in Manhattan and discovered some of the amazing recording artists we brought into these sessions. We’ve followed the track for this physical archive collection and found out what we’re doing to bring it back to life.

With over 75 years in our rear window, we have barely scraped the surface. We’ve unearthed information about our first decade, but haven’t touched the ‘40s yet, which many believe was our most impactful decade. Every decade has its own musical story and we have the recordings to prove it.

So, before I move on, I’d like to first thank you for joining me on this journey. Next I’d like to make sure you’re up to speed on my past archive blogs. Go to the top of the page and click “Blogging the Archives”. There you’ll find over 10 blogs about this intriguing subject. Have fun!

I’ll be back in a few days to continue our voyage.
