Nancy Plum’s “skimmer” tape from Ten-Q

This tape turned out to have far more excitement than one could possibly imagine from an old, beat up bare cassette.


Part 2 of this scope is a compilation of two days worth of KTNQ Los Angeles. Its mostly Nancy Plum, but contains a few breaks from Gary Cocker, whose filling in for morning man / Ten-Q Program Director John M. Driscoll, and later, a few minutes that represent at least the first hour of Mr. Driscoll himself… at the end of this recording.


Once again, we are treated to a very high-fidelity recording of what appears to be parts of two shows recorded onto this tape at KTNQ 1020 radio. First-generation tapes can be nice! There’s very little tape hiss, but the station’s on-air processing is caught on tape, as this likely was recorded from the station’s air monitor.
