This section of Kim's Musical Activities is the fastest growing segment of his current career... he's currently in the studio working on two soundtracks and when he comes out we will be updating you on the stuff you know about that isn't listed. Keep in mind Kim has lived and created in 38 USA cities and 22 additional countries since 1964... for example: 1995 - 1996 Kim blasted through 10 cities and 8 countries; sometimes the music gets used... and he hears about it last. There is a bit of inconsistency here in the coordination between use - license - legal response - actual transmission/release dates: stay tuned...
