WRNR 103.1 Christmas Eve with Chris 1997

Thought as long as I was posting Christmas crap on here, I would continue with DJ Chris from WRNR doing his whacked out Xmas Eve show. With tunes like Root Boy's 'Xmas at K-Mart' and John Prine's 'Xmas in Prison' it's a fun one to listen to. I cut out a bunch of commercials but did leave in a few that date things like a piece bragging about their fast 56k digital modem access to the internet.

Asleep at The Wheel, John Prine, Junior Brown, Root Boy Slim, Pablo Black, The Bobs, Bill Kirchen, The Kinks

WHFS 99.1 XXVIII SARA 06-09-1985 From DaveB

This tape has some ambiguities. I'm guessing Dave typo'd the label. It's most likely June not Sept. Getting that out the way, it's a nice mix of your 'HFS favorites that you might expect from mid 1985. I left off the DLR tune from MTV. Thanks again Dave!

WHFS 99.1 XXV, TUE THEN LISA 08-08-1984 FROM DaveB

This is a nice tape from 1984 of DJ Tue, pronounced like the number 2. And Lisa, though it sounds like Neecee to me...but who really knows for sure. Side Two starts with Little Feat live from the Columbus album. Sadly the record is wasted with pops and scratches but, hey you might enjoy that in a weird sort of ways...Enjoy and thanks again Dave!

WHFS 99.1 XXX DIANE 06-14-1985 From DaveB

This is a great tape of DJ Diane from June 14 1985, followed by another DJ who's name I can't recall. It's loaded with great tunes but sadly is marred in a few places with bad reception and drop outs. Definetely worth a download and listen.
Thanks Dave!

Dave caught the transistion from WHFS in Bethesda, MD to WLOM in Annapolis before they aquired the WHFS call letters for what would become 99.1 'HFS. They called themselves 'Progressive 99'. Deejays Adelle and Sarah are recorded on this tape playing some damned fine tunes from 1983. It's a good one!

Warren Zevon, Elvis Costello, Willy Nile, Ian Gomm, Depeche Mode, Fingerprints, Simple Minds, Tim Scott, N.Y. Dolls, Slickee Boys, Stiv Bators, Echo & The Bunnymen, Dream Syndicate, Let's Acive, Bongos, 84 Rooms, R.E.M.

Until I get the MP3 Lame codec installed on my recording software you will just have to deal with Windows Media Audio...Sorry.

WGTB From Robbie: WGTB Hard Implosion Dec 29, 1978 (Frank Cresce) and other WGTB Mini Mega Post

It's been too long since my last post. System crashes suck!
To get things started I am sharing several WGTB tapes that Robbie sent me.
One is 'The Hard Implosion' show from December 29th 1978.
What an awesome treat from Robbie to score some more WGTB Hard Implosion shows.
Chock full of 70's hard rock and wild and crazy stoner banter between the DJ's

Included in the file are couple of other tapes that Robbie uploaded...
The John Zambetti (June 1969) tape includes a rare Neil Young interview Gotta grab this one!

Credit goes to Robbie and Ken Sleeman (former WGTB Program Manager)

It Sucks Losing Your System Drive

My system disk bit the dust last week. I bought a used PC and now most of my stuff works. New versions of old programs were downloaded but I'll be damned if I can figure out how to get my recording software to record MP3's using the lame codec.
I have been dead in the water relying on my HP Tablet PC to access the web and email. As all of you probably know this completely sucks! I guess I need to invest in some mirroring software for the system disc. All my music, photos, and other stuff are safely backed up so no issues there.
Anyways...I'm just about ready to post some more stuff but it's going to be in WMA 9.1 format at least until I figure this stuff out...So don't give me any shit! (-;

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...
