Description by Contributor…

KDWB FM Stereo
Richfield / Mpls. / St. Paul, MN
1980 or 1981 (?)
101.3 Twin Cities KDWB Rainbowsegments – just some odds and ends from same “Sunday Night at the 60’s” show
Remaining info the same other than:
1st generation tape: Maxell UD 35-90 @ 3.75 IPS

Note of interest: My original Pioneer R2R was completely wore out. Too many parties (back in the day…) and non-stop playback while I was working around the house put a big groove in the heads – too expensive to replace so I let it go, box, Instruction manual and all to a pawn shop. 4 years ago, I replaced it with an identical machine from eBay – no head wear what so ever and no oxide buildup around anything! It was pretty much a new (unused) machine – and works like it! Perfect match to my tapes. I’m keeping this one…

Thanks to Donald J. Bohn for this short but sweet look at KDWB-FM from a time before it’s long-running CHR format!

    Great stereo from these 2 airchecks.
    …..just too bad they were samples only.
    Thanks for sharing

    The first voice was that of Steve Oliver and the rest of the aircheck featured Chip Hobart.
