WHFS 102.3 Weasel Frantic Friday July 3rd 1983

Had to combine two files from a music CDR of a tape sent in with the tapes from Tom of Kensington to produce this one file. Too bad it ran out before I could catch the rundown from Weasel. One of the tunes I am curious about is, what is probably what Queen covered, "Crazy Little Thing Called Love"...would like to know who that original artist was...
Anyways it's a nice line up great tunes,

The Pole Cats, Nervous Eaters, Mickey Jump. Joe King Carossco, The Stones, The Marvelettes, Martha Reeves, The Belle Stars, Little Anna Bella, Billy Idol, Men Without Hats and more...

Wow! This is one of those great Weasel shows playing the great tunes that I just loved back in the early 80's.
Tom from Kensington sent this on CD that a friend of his sent along with Tom's tapes. It's a short 48 minutes, but oh so good!

Remembering Those Frantic Fridays

Joe Bonomo writes on his blog:

Much of what we endure in the present softens and comes to a mild glow through the wide lens of nostalgia. It's more rare when something vital and urgent in the far past retains its charge in the present. Joyce Carol Oates says that "blood is memory without language." When a recollection stirs us, language vainly tries to translate. So my dilemma: how do I describe the effects on me of Weasel's "Frantic Friday" sets on WHFS in the 1980s, which have retained their charge in my memory.

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...
