The labels used during 1963-1968 were the same as had been used since 1957. There is some notation in collectors' books that a transition label was used with only the information on the bottom of the label changed, to "A Division of Paramount Pictures" on the bottom, but we have not seen this label. Indeed, we have seen albums with the Paramount logo on the jacket and the old Dot label inside. If anyone has one of these transition labels, we would appreciate hearing from you.

There's one incompletely 'scoped song we have to report, but otherwise, this 'scoped exhibit includes some fabulous commercial jingles, and it sounds really nice, despite the infrequent atmospheric crackles and squelched whistle. It has some excellent samples of what made KAAY in Little Rock, Arkansas, a remarkable and memorable Top 40 radio station in the golden age of appropriately regulated radio. It's the 5PM hour, and Buddy Carr is heard with a portion of the countdown of The Silver Dollar Survey . Doc Holliday is featured with a Bannerline newscast. And there are lots of PAMS jingles and sensational production, too! Contributor John Quincy says this aircheck is from the personal collection of the late Lexington, KY. broadcaster Herb Oscar Kent ( WLAP, WVLK ). How about that nearly mystical "bumper" jingle under and after the hits? Really works here, best use of this technique I've heard. And who remembers those record offers for albums featuring soundalike performers? Tonight is Halloween, the Great Pumpkin is out and there's an invite to the KAAY Holiday Haunted House .

. . puttin' some words on ya, and talkin' that trash . . [Description by Uncle Ricky, contributed by John Quincy ] Contributor John Quincy says this aircheck is from the personal collection of the late Lexington, KY. broadcaster Herb Oscar Kent ( WLAP, WVLK ). It was recorded from the FM simulcast of WPLO-AM .

By 1960, most of the album issues were done in both stereo and mono. The logo Dot used was usually the plain circle, but occasionally they used the more elaborate Dot/Paramount logo. There does not seem to be any consistency for this, as some albums have one logo on the front and the other on the back. All used the normal black Dot label, regardless of which logo was on the cover.
