THIS IS MY LAST WHFS TAPE FROM THE BETHESDA DAYS WHFS 102.3FM DAVID 02-07-1983 2:45-4:30PM


I cringe when I stumble onto another recording from WHFS where I f--ked up and used my graphics equalizer on. I did my best to reverse the damage, but you can tell. It's not terrible, just, to my ears, it's sounds a bit different. You be the judge.

I took this CD, recorded 5 years ago straight from the open reel tape, then today I ripped it to my hard drive, played it back using Windows Media Player with reversed equalizer settings, and used Total Recorder Software to re-record it. A tedious process, but the sound is way better then the CD.
Thankfully I recorded with the equalizer on only a handful of times.
This open reel tape of David, recorded Monday Afternoon on Feb 07 1983 is too good of a show to pass up so here it is.

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...
