WHFS 102.3 XIV Mark March 1 and March 3 1983 From DaveB

Holy crap! It looks like this tape was run over by a truck and then an attempt to straighten it out with vice grips. You can't really tell from the scans, but the cassette is so badly warped I feared there was no chance to get this bad boy ripped. The fix luckily was rather easy. I removed the top two screws and that gave the mechanism enough room for the reels to turn inside. We did lose the last couple of minutes of side 2 however. But hey, still managed to get 85 minutes of great Mark and some Milo for your listening pleasure. Thanks again Dave!

Ok -- I know I am loosing it... :) or as it was stated on Monty Python --- "My brain hurts!"

I just realized that the island music I heard was on the earlier tape, and not the warped cartridge... all the same... still great tunes and great to listen to.

Thanks again CB.

Has anyone else noticed that as you listen to tapes you made long ago -- you can anticipate the next song? So many of these have Echo and the Bunneymen, Comsat Angels, Roxy Music, and others that mix/match the playsets... one advantage to having and ever expanding set of tunes is that it is harder to anticipate and it is much closer to having the old 102.3right here in...

(if only...).

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...
