From Contributor Andy Bologovsky, bits of promos and live shows from 7/3/73. The Gas crisis is on and ‘The New Waves’ provides tips on how to save energy. We hear actual airchecks from Mason Lee Dixon and John Long.
This is a bit tough to listen to. Apparently recorded with a small cassette deck mic placed in front of a radio speaker, the sound is tinny. And if you listen carefully enough, you’ll hear a kid’s voice in the background.
I think all of us recorded the radio in this manner when we were very young and just getting interested. I did – back in ’76 made a few low-quality tapes this way of WBZ Boston, which did survive into the 80s but certainly not long enough to make it to Airchexx (and that’s a shame). How many of our visitors did?
