Ken says:

"Unforgettable, in every way, and forever more, thatís how youíll stay."

Nat "King" Cole first recorded "Unforgettable" in 1952. It's a beautiful song that while written about a woman, could apply to many things. This includes a 14 year period in the history of PAMS (1960 through 1974) when some of its best jingles were written and played on Americaís radio stations.

For me this era represented my teenage years and early 20s, a time I fell in love with top-40 radio and its jingles in particular. People have come and gone in my life. I married, gained a stepson, watched the world change in many serious ways, but the PAMS jingles from the 60s and early 70s will always remain "unforgettable" to me.
