WHFS 102.3FM MILO Then KIM JULY 1981 Shared by super contributor Jim

Camarillo,
 
Here’s a 45 minute tape from July 1981. This is one of my earliest ‘HFS tapes and although the sound quality is good, it’s not put together as cleanly as my later tapes.  No matter, it is still worth a listen.  It begins with tunes from Milo and shifts somewhere in the middle to Kim.  I didn’t catch most of the back announcing on this so had to remember, guess, or look up the artists as best I could.

Milo then Kim
Talking Heads, T. Bone Burnett, Grace Jones, Human Sexual Response (“Jackie Onassis”), The Waitresses, ??? (Marianne), Holly & the Italians, Let’s Active (early version of ‘Blue Line’), ???, 999, Blue Orchids, Medium Medium, and ends as it began with the Talking Heads

I have no doubt it's worth a listen! I'll let you know what I think later.

WOW. I can't BELIEVE anyone has this. Thanks for putting it out.

I was at the station in July 1981, actually. Some friends and I did an interview with Weasel for our high school newspaper. The station was located high up in a building called Triangle Towers.

We arrived early and hung out in the town of Bethesda, checking out a record store that I think was on Cordell Avenue, and popping into the local club, the Psyche-Delly, before being asked to leave because we were too young. We also picked up HFS "homegrown radio" shirts from a local hair place that used to sell them, Magic Scissors.

We got to sit in on the end of Weasel's shift, and after speaking to Weasel, we briefly met Milo. For us, this was like meeting rock stars since we were glued to the station when we discovered it -- sometimes cutting class to catch Damian's afternoon show (we were big fans of his Cajun theme song). I can't remember much about meeting Milo, but it's a trip to get to hear his voice again.

The record store was probably Choice Cuts on St Elmo (one street over) It was a great independent record store with Bootlegs on vinyl sold as "collectibles" behind the counter.

I couldn't find a way to contact you directly, so I put a scan of my high school interview with Weasel out on Zippyshare. Feel free to post it, but with these caveats:

My co-writer Tom and I were 16 and 17 at the time. We had virtually no support for this at our high school and pretty much had to sneak it into the paper. So excuse the typos and misuse of phrases like "progressive rock," which we took to mean rock outside the mainstream. There were only a handful of kids who liked "HFS music" and those who didn't were outright hostile to anyone even remotely related to "punk" or "new wave." It was 1981, but these kids were still very 1971 (the TV show "Freaks and Geeks" captured this time period pretty convincingly).

On the day this issue came out, I got screamed at -- and I mean SCREAMED at -- by a cheerleader who felt I was wasting "valuable space" in the newspaper on my BS that no one cared about.

A dichotomy had developed: The entire school vs. us. You can see this in the classified ads on the newspaper page. There are dozens upon dozens about cheerleading, sports, teachers, etc. Then at the very end, there we made it a point to pay tribute to our favorite album by...The Velvet Underground. We tried.

Love the HFS stories: Blue Line is an incredible song and their best. And Jackie Kennedy "After my date with tragedy, I'll let Aristotle take care of me" should have been a No. 1 hit worldwide. Bill

I wanna be, Jackie Onasis, oh yeah!

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...
