Eight 90 Minute Tapes Of WHFS from 1983 Megapost


This post is WHFS, DJ Diane, from assorted dates in 1983. These tapes are straight up recordings with commercials, news, public service anouncments and of course tons of great music. I got this in a trade from "Bob". I traded to him, all my WHFS music ripped to my hard drive as well as my WRNR and WGTB music. Hope you don't mind me sharing Bob. It's a big file.

great blog and great post, but you can only download this one with a premium account from megaupload due to its huge size. any chance of splitting it? something to consider next time. thank you.

I'm a junkie for HFS but not going to pay $200 bucks for it. I have faith you will figure something out. thanks again.

don't know why you would pay $200 for megaupload unless you want alifetime membership. Get a free account and wait between uploads or for $10.00 you can download like crazy for a month. Pretty cheap service.

Splitting up is a pain. Bite the bullet. For the price of a bargain CD you can download stuff for a month.

Grew up in Fairfax on a steady diet of HFS. This is just plain wonderful.

I have my own recordings, of lesser quality, if you're interested.

Great,

My e-mail is jebaxt@sbcglobal.net. Go ahead and send me an e-mail, and I'll send you the links, once I figure out how to work the technology. I've never uploaded this much stuff before.

As far as sharing, feel free. I just wanted to return the favor. These posts are excellent.

Does anyone have any WHFS recordings from the early 70s? That's what I'm nostalgic for.
My email address is kramla@aol.com

Diane 5-13-83 show:

Diane gets into a swing and blues theme that is priceless....some Joe Jackson, Tom Waits all kinds of stuff....all played from vinyl (remember, this is still the pre CD era....CDs were only a very small niche in the market)......just classic HFS. Love to hear the pops/clicks from the vinyl in the headphones!

Kayaker, got a chance to really fall back in love with Diane after all these years! After all, she woke me up many a morning back in the day! LOL.
I love the show where she plays New Musik, Simple Minds, Flock Of Seagulls and that great cover of Like A Hurricane by Roxy Music. Just some great music here from Diane. She had a very nice voice to wake up to as well. I sure miss her and Adele - they were truly great.

She is sorely missed...but brought back to life!

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...
