Sessions, Jan 11, 2019 – Guest – Samantha Kives Of K – Tel Records

But wait, there’s more!

Samantha Kives, daughter of Philip Kives – the creator of K-Tel records, joins Barry and Matt to chat about her father, their company and the resurgence of one of their most treasured products – The Mini Pops.

Matt gushes about dreaming about girls whilst listening to the Mini Pops and Samantha charts the journey of the band from its inception, through to faltering, and now the resurgence that is leading a nostalgia love in for all things 80’s.

Philip’s daughter discusses her reasoning for working with her father, his passing and the legacy that he’s left behind.

Its a wonderful, warm chat with a daughter that is carrying on her Dad’s penchant for success.
