WHFS 99.1 XXXIV TOM T 08-07-1987 From DaveB

This is a sweet tape from WHFS 99.1 Deejay Tom T. Taped on a Friday evening in August of 1987.
I guess we all know Tom recently passed away from a bout with cancer. R.I.P Tom T!

Lots of great tunes here, and an especially nice 12" remix of It's Immaterial's "I Mean After All It's Only Dead Man's Curve". Don't think I've heard this version before. Anyway, grab it and let us know what you think and give Dave some love...




















The Truth, Erasure, Dreamtime, Paranorma, Bill Bruford, U2, Leona Byrd, Difjuze, Jennifer Warren, The Nylons, David Sylvian, Bruce Cockburn, It's Immaterial, 10,000 Maniacs

I appreciate your scanning these labels and tapes... Everyone used to speak so highly of the TDK tapes, but I really loved the Maxell XLIIS tapes -- at least, until the Denon tapes came along. I don't know why, but they really seemed to sound better. Higher highs and all of that (not that it really matters when recording off the radio).

If I didn't see the label, I would've thought you were lying... Two XXXIV tapes??? Hrmph. How could I do that!!!

I am downloading the tape now to listen to tomorrow evening... but I just wanted to say thanks for doing this (again) -- and for bearing through all of the morass of errors (wrong tapes, duplicate tape numbers -- but with different music, tapes that have been warped by the sun and pliers!, etc... )

And on top of that, we have found a few more tapes here around the house... I will have to send those on their way to CB for listening and ripping pleasure too... :)

Wow... I never really realized how good all this music is... I have put all of the music here on my IPOD and have been listening to it at work -- needless to say it takes several days to go through all of these sessions.

Today I was listening to XXXIV (the second one :)) and was really impressed by how timeless some of the music is. WHFS was terrific in that regard. And I am so happy that Josh, Bob, and others have provided their music as well. These time slices are terrific reminders -- like you said CB, these time capsules are "awesome".

(BTW -- my rant about two (2) XXXIV's was really just a rant about my own inability to count! Making these tapes over time (a long period of time at that) and I often lost track of tapes I had made -- esp. those made in the middle of the night!

Thanks again CB for working with these and making them available for everyone. They are really terrific...

I can't wait to hear this next one!

Links appear to be dead, are the Tom-T shows online anywhere else?

Mash,
Here is a new link. Sadly, It was back when disk space was expensive, and I compressed it. Sounds good in a car or WMA/MP3 player.

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...
