WHFS 102.3FM TAPES FROM ROBBIE

Robbie kindly mailed CDs to me containing 6 90 minute tapes of WHFS taped in 1983.

I sampled some of them, and frankly the sound is pretty bad in parts. I suspect warped, stretched tapes, playback azimuth not calibrated, or just plain cheap tapes. Some of it is unlistenable in my opinion. The 1st Weazel tape for example, has extreme wow and flutter in the beginning, but smooths out later on. I don't have time to listen to them all, so I am just gonna post 'em all now.
There is plenty of good stuff in here, so if you crave more HFS from the 102.3 era, here ya go.
 In no means am I bustin' Robbie's chops here. It is what it is. The man has sent a wealth of music to post here and I thank him for that!

Each download contains two sides of a 90 minute tape, MP3@192

This is like the golden days of Camarillo Brillo. Still amazing for those who grew up on this magical station in the DC area; thanks

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...
