This composite was spliced together by your webmaster from CD tracks made from the original reel tapes. Much of this focuses attention on Norm Gregory’s show. There was a ‘Part 1’ that did NOT make it into this composite because I took it as a separate track and posted it many years ago, because it features Larry Lujack on KJR and I felt it needed to be a separate exhibit. You can listen to that one HERE. You will note the various quality variations as this came from different...
