WAMU 88.5 FM Overnight Express tape from July 13, 1980 From Jim


 My Good buddy Jim, who taped lots of local radio way back in the day... Has shared another cool tape with us. Thanks again as always Jim!

Here's his email text to me.

I've switched computers so don't think I've sent you anything from this email address before but here I am with another find from the basement.

Here's a recording of the WAMU 88.5 FM Overnight Express show from July 13, 1980 which included Bruce Rosenstein's every other week new music show. I found it on the B side of a Live Gang of Four Concert that was played on WHFS a month later.  The concert spilled over a bit and unfortunately I taped over the first minute of Bruce but 25- 30 minutes of his show remains.  I don't remember any of these songs but luckily Bruce back announces all of them. After he signs off there's about 10 minutes of Kim playing the Slickee Boys and The Dark--at least I think the last few are from The Dark.  I have a couple of their tunes on Skip Groff's DC Connected Sampler (LIMP 1005), so it's nice to hear more from them.

Glad to see you still have the blog going and hoping you are in good health.
As always I'll share any additional nuggets that surface.

The Kinks - King Biscuit Flower Hour - Chicago 1986

Recorded Live at the Riviera Theatre, Chicago, Illinois 1986

Another one of my tapes that I thought had been posted here before. It's a good sounding over the air broadcast of the Kinks recorded Feb 17 1989 from 98 Rock, WIYY in Baltimore. Always blows my mind that these 30 plus year old tapes sound this good. Sadly there is a tape flip/splice on You Really Got Me. Shit happens.

Billy Idol - King Biscuit Flower Hour 98 Rock 04-29-1990

Another tape I stumbled on while looking for some goodies to add to my iPod. It's an awesome sounding show taped off of 98 Rock and ripped today to share. I tried looking on line for a cleaner rip from an original KBFH CD, but the only one I found was a dodgy link for a download that I passed on. No matter, this one sounds fuckin' great! Steve Stevens is the real deal! Enjoy!

TEARS FOR FEARS - In Concert Westwood One, from WHFS 1990

I went ahead and ripped this 29 year old cassette today and figured, might as well post it here to share with my fellow 'HFS heads, and anyone else that can dig this.
It's an on the air recording of a Westwood One Radio Broadcast on WHFS circa 1990, recorded on my Akai Open Reel Tape Deck then transferred to this cassette tape. Can't seem to find anything on line about it. It sounds pretty sweet for a 29 year old TDK SA-76 Tape!

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...
