Larry Tremaine, Border Blaster 1090 XERB | 1968

Just making a guess here, this was recorded at night. Lots of fading and at times the skywave signal cancels out the ground wave, but otherwise its a decent, albeit cleaned up recording that came in on cassette. Best guess at the jocks name is Larry Tremaine. Difficult to read the handwriting that was printed on the tape, but he does announce his name early on. Tremaine says he is in for Huggy Boy. Well, that would be referring to the much beloved Dick Hugg, whom we have featured doing his first show for KRTH K-Earth 101 on this site. Scoping this aircheck down proved to be pointless. The jock talks all thoughout the songs, the quality is poor enough that its doubtful anyone’s going to complain. The few commercials aired were also left in, perhaps someone remembers some of these XERB...

Wolfman Jack, 1090 XERB Rosarito Beach, Baja California, Mexico | April 12, 1970

Contributor Steven Green had this transferred from one of his reels – prized posession, we suspect :). This is an original recording of Wolfman Jack, made in the Spring of 1970. Authentic AM static, Southern California commercials and XERB jingles are all included! Its surprising this hasn’t turned up somewhere before now, but our contributor likely did not share this until now. This is certainly not some ‘bootleg’ Wolfman album or some promotional item from XERB! You will hear (parts) of songs not heard on radio’s airwaves for decades.
