A Note from Ken Deutsch

Dear jingle fans:

I know that many of you are very interested in obtaining particular jingle packages or CDs from my former catalogue. In 2005 I retired from selling and trading jingles. Even though I get frequent requests via e-mail and phone from collectors, I must politely decline each one.

However, there is some good news. Ted Tatman, my friend and the man who set up this site, may be able to help you. Instead of contacting me, I suggest you write to Ted at ted@tedtatman.com.

I am always available to identify unknown jingles or to answer any questions about jingles or collecting, but if you wish to obtain specific jingles, Ted is the guy to talk to. Thanks!

Ken

PS: My two jingle books are available as e-downloads through www.kendeutsch.com, so if you missed out on purchasing a hard copy, check out the electronic versions which have been expanded with extra material and pictures.

About Primary Contributor Ken Deutsch


Ken Deutsch (2012)

My name is Ken Deutsch, but for years I was known as Ken R, president of Ken R. LLC. From 1980 through 2000, I owned a recording studio in Toledo, Ohio that produced resings of PAMS jingles for clients around the world. However, my inspiration was always the original PAMS of Dallas, which produced exceptional jingles between roughly 1960-1974. (Today PAMS Productions is owned by my friend, Jon Wolfert. You can get the full story at www.PAMS.com.)

But before I owned the studio, I was a jingle collector or "jingle freak" as some people put it. That meant I would beg and borrow jingles from friends, radio stations or DJs and get analog (and sometimes hissy) dubs of them. I started collecting in about 1964, but didn't know anyone else did this until about 1970 when Jon and I began corresponding. You mean there are OTHER folks who collect these? Cool!

A small group of us used to exchange what we called "sampler" tapes, which featured the best of our new acquisitions in montage form. Jon Wolfert, Ken Justiss, Ron Harris and a few other crazies were the best at assembling these. I began putting together my own "mix tapes," and had great fun with it.

In 1980 I lucked into an unusual purchase. I won't go into the details here because the story is told in my various books, but suffice it to say I ended up with over 3000 reels of primo PAMS jingles from the company itself, including the instrumental (backing) tracks.

Since that time I have continued to put together these "samplers," for my own amusement and for the amusement of a few friends. Now, through this wacky thing called the Internet, I am able to share them with a wider audience. I do not sell these samplers; they are free to all who wish to enjoy them with me. (I do sell electronic copies of my jingle books through Kindle, available at www.kendeutsch.com.)

If you enjoy PAMS jingles, or even jingles from other producers, have fun! If you REALLY like PAMS jingles, buy some from Jon Wolfert at JAM/PAMS in Dallas!

And please feel free to write me with any comments or suggestions!

Our Newest Ken Deutsch Jingle Sampler! Released July 1, 2013
PAMS MOSAIC SAMPLER
By Ken Deutsch

Ken says: "Most jingle fans are familiar with the numbered PAMS series (1-49) and a few of the named packages such as Philadelphia Story (1972) and Solid Rock (1971). But to get the entire picture, one must also experience the many custom packages, grids and even not-for-broadcast works that were created between 1960-1978. This sampler was designed to fill in some of the missing spaces in the mosaic.

"Over the last ten years, we have lost many of the people who toiled so hard to make these jingles sparkle back in the day. During assembly of this sampler, death claimed one of the most gifted, Chris Kershaw. He was 62, just about my age. Chris was one of the first of a new generation of people coming up in the late 60s and early 70s, and he was equally adept at arranging, playing various instruments and singing. His work graced some of the best PAMS and JAM packages of that era, and he also started several companies of his own. If life is a mosaic, Chris was a very colorful piece.

"By the way, I mentioned the grid packages that PAMS created. These were custom packages that took advantage of multi-track recording in a unique way. Between the years of approximately 1968 and 1970, a custom-designed 10-track recorder was employed at PAMS so that a handful of instrumental tracks could be sung a number of ways on various layers. With clever mixing and editing, a station was able to get dozens of variations on a theme. Many of these packages were written by Bob Piper and Marv Shaw, two men who also are no longer with us. Engineer Bruce Collier mixed many of these packages, getting a lot of sound out of a limited number of tracks.

"This sampler features exclusively PAMS material, with a couple of exceptions. One spoken line having to do with 'drums' came from the JAM archive, and a few comedy bits came from a record called "Chaos" by Arbogast and Ross (1959)."
