WRNR: Chris Then Craig Dec 5-6 1997



In the late 90's and early 00's WRNR was truly a "Freeform Progressive" radio station. Occasionaly, before I hit the rack, I would pop a tape in my Kenwood auto reverse cassette deck, and record 'til the tape ran out as I dozed off. I have scores of these tapes and will post 'em as I rip 'em. The Midnight Shift tapes from DJ Craig are exceptional to say the least. Very few commercials, just music, concert promos and the occasional weather report. Here is another fine Maxell 90 minute WRNR tape of DJ's Chris then Craig recorded Wed Evening and Thursday Morning Dec 5th and 6th 1997.



Winter Hours, Huffamoose, Peter Rowan, Delbert McClinton, Richard Thompson, Yo La Tango, Jefferson Airplane, William Topely, Traffic, Duncan Shiek, Nick Drake, Quicksilver, Etta James, Cherry Poppin' Daddys, Annie De Franco, Tracy Chapmen, Michelle Shocked

Kayaker, I have enjoyed these RNR tapes just as much as the HFS tapes. Very cool to have this rip. I will probably use this tape to drift off to sleep myself.....last night I listened to Bob "Here" from 4-20-83....a great setlist featuring Dire Straits, George Winston, Joan Armatrading, Van Morrison and others....
thanks,
VanFan

Kayaker, I am listening to 12-5-97 right now...very cool. I remember being tempted to move up to Annapolis, MD during the 90s. I couldn't get RNR at all here in Herndon, VA.

I might have been worth the move. Annapolis area is very nice. Beats the $hit outta NoVA IMHO...No offence...

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...
