WHFS from March 85 shared by Josh

Josh sent me a comment and mentioned that he had some WHFS he wanted to share. WHFS had moved to Annapolis by this time. So here it is with his comments from the e-mail. Thank Josh for sharing! Can anyone help him with his artist search?

"Thanks for the tips. They helped get me going. I sent the first four files, taken from two cassettes. Let me know if you receive them.

A few words on the process. I put these together by doing a series of random tapes and pulling off the bits I liked from those tapes. I decided to sacrifice quality by going down another generation to get exactly the music I wanted. I also include random PSAs and other debris. Somewhere on Tape 2 there's a DJ messing up on the concert calendar, accompanied by Shadowfax. Tape 2 is one of my favorites, with Brian Eno, Bonzo Goes to Washington, obscure Stranglers, etc. More to come.

I don't always capture the song titles and artists, which is a bit frustrating. I've been trying to find MP3s of my favorites, mostly with good success. However, there is one song on tape 1 that you might be able to help me with. Here are some lyrics

Saw you having breakfast
Down at the campus cafe
You were there with your new man
Babe I didn't know quite what to say

Anyway, when you hear it, let me know if you recognize the tune or the artist. I've Googled, I've checked, I've tried the message boards on New Wave Outpost and had no luck.

Anyway, thanks again for your blog. I recognize the many hours of work that went into it.

Chorus to unknown song

Baby you've been good to me
You only did the best that you could
But I'm travelling with this heart on the highway
and I guess you always understood

I'm with you, but it's okay if it doesn't happen here. I'm sure I'll run into it sooner or later, and the journey's half the fun.

What This Is All About

I've been collecting live music from various sources since the mid to late 70's. Radio shows, TV broadcasts, radio show pre-FM CD's and vinyl LP's and some trades. Most of the shows posted here, I recorded and ripped myself. I always had top of the line stereo equipment and cassette and open reel recorders for those on air broadcasts.

I've downloaded plenty of bootlegged concerts from various blogs. As a rule I will only post stuff from my collection and not what is already available out there.

I also post out of print CDs and LPs from my collection.
I will repost from my readers anything someone sends me as long as it is either out of print or something that's not from someone else's blog. If you want to share a link for a cool item on your blog, or someone else's, please feel free to post it in the comments........

Enjoy and please leave a comment and pass this blog along.

Can you believe that so many out there are starving for the old WHFS? Amazing!

If you leave a comment, how about using a nickname instead of Anonymous. At least make up something please. Thanks!

I have reconsidered my position...and will re-upload dead links, so long as you go to that particular post and make the request from the comments page...
