Listen: Sound Museum / Ken Nordine with The Fred Katz Group

A rather quirky one from ’59, not unlike some TWILIGHT ZONE episode. The whole EP is a fun, bachelor pad meets lounge listen. Nice sleeve too.

Ken Nordine was a well known voiceover artist of the 50′s with his deep resonance being featured in many commercials and movie trailers. One critic wrote, “You may not know Ken Nordine by name or face, but you’ll almost certainly recognize his voice.”

I guess jazz does double for anything the media can not easily categorize.

Check out the sound effect around the 2:20 mark. M.I.A., not only did you make a disrespectful fool of yourself on the Super Bowl half time show, you’ve also been punk’d. Please do something original.
