In California’s Wonderful Corner!

In 1962, local radio station KNEZ (“The Breezy 960”) produced a promotional piece entitled “I Had a Ball in Big L.”  The song became an instant hit when it hit the airwaves.  It was so popular that KNEZ sold 45 rpm copies of it for $1 apiece. There are very few of those recording still surviving. After 40 plus years, we found one and have provided it here for your listening pleasure. To answer the many questions about who the singer is —- we don’t know. The piece was produced and recorded by a professional jingle company in Los Angeles, that specialized in promotional jingles and commercials.  The 45 recording has no information on its label.  The singer is most likely a contract studio artist.

Click the play button below. Please be patient, it may take a few seconds to begin playing.  Click HERE to read about the song in the February 25, 2007 “Historical Ramblings” column from the Lompoc Record.
