WGTB and WAMU Shows from 1978, 1979, 1981

Robbie sent his last batch of Radio Shows from classic FM 'Underground' Radio from the D.C. area.
Should be some interesting stuff here about the closing down of WGTB

many many thanks sir!
I 1st met John in the 'gtb studio in the fall of '77 -
he was getting ready to play The hot import of 'Before and After Science'
by Eno o/c, and I had brought with me the new private rls of 'Are We Not Men' (we are devo)
it was quite the conundrum that sunday night...
Mr. Paige became a fan of the boys from ohio that night...

thanks again Sir, I also supplied Chris Thompson with some obscure rock-a-billy and Ralph Records stuff...
those were the days...
Another highlight was walking down the stairs outside of the Childe Harold after watching the Ramones 1st DC gig,
may 20-30 folks there, and having Cerphe from HFS thrust a mic in my face asking about the future of punk rock,
true hilarity!

thanks again Sir -

I'd really appreciate an updated link for these shows. Great memories, I'm sure. Thanks in advance.

tommyc, I cant't find the WAMU files so I added some from another period. The GTB stuff is here.

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...
