This aircheck is a bit confusing. Actually three different ‘checks on one tape, this starts with the beginning of the famous New York City blackout – Dan Ingram mentioning the electricity ‘slowing down’. Really just a clip, before it moves on to January 25, and then March 22 of 1968.
Notice the majority of this recording lacks WABC’s reverb. Most likely either recorded directly off the board or from WABC-FM 95.5, although no details were included with this package.
This is a short composite, scoped down and of course in glorious AM Mono.
