The Ray Conniff Singers
Anyone here have any of their albums? (They made about a hundred of them)
Their music is like shag carpeting. I picture them all in a studio with Sweaters and corduroy pants on. The men look like Lyle Waggoner and the women look like Florence Henderson.

I loved their cover of "The Pusher" originally recorded by Steppenwolf.

Andre Kostelanetz, Mantovani, Percy Faith and the 101 Strings were instrumental staples of the format.

When I was a kid, Ray Conniff's "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" was THE Christmas album for our house.

My grandmother had several 8-track tapes of this, I believe.

Were they the people who sang that "little green apple" song and pronounced Indianapolis as "Indiana-POE-lis?" It used to drive me crazy when my mom listened to that shit on the car radio.

I always preferred the Do Re Mi Children's Chorus.
