ODDS & ENDS

ABOUT THIS FINE SERIES

As with the previous and also future titles in this series, Odds & Ends Vol. 1 purposes to present you, the listener, with the best selections available to us, the programmers, of that wide-ranging American musical genre. 

This volume in our long running series might easily be subtitled “It Came from the Garage,” as that is where many of these wonderful records and tapes that make up this set came from. Some were a little worse for the wear, some smelled strongly of mildew, but all had that something, and indeed they quite literally shouted out and implored us to put them on this collection. We believe you will agree we did the right thing.

Among the many fascinating country, blues, and gospel selections, we also present a number of tunes from the provinces of our great land—Hawaii, Louisiana, Europe, and Japan. As many of these have found their way into the slipstream of popular culture, we find they travel quite comfortably next to their more well-considered brethren.  —Irving Snurd, Radio Station WACK, Lompoc, Ca.
