A Word About Support:
Each month, we ask for donations to support our online museum. It’s an ongoing request, because only a few ever donate, despite an audience in the thousands every day. Won’t you please help out and chip in? It goes to a worthy cause, helping to keep these classic radio recordings online and free to the user. Airchexx is a user-supported but free historical and educational website that also provides thousands of hours of listening enjoyment every day. You can make a voluntary, monthly contribution below, or look in the sidebar to the right for a link to make a one-time donation to help us defray costs. Thank you
72 HOURS, CONTINUED
What I ended up getting was a ton of WICC 600 out of Bridgeport. I was flipping through the FM dial using my Sony HD receiver, found WICC, put it on in the background and went on about playing on Facebook. I forgot that this was still recording. I thought I’d hit the STOP button in Adobe Audition. Come to find out, it kept recording. For 72 hours! I got busy with life and totally forgot about it!
The lucky part was, even with 12 gigs of ram on this PC, it still slows down and I thought surely that this recording would never mix down to a file. It did. It took Audition two painstakingly slow hours to render to mp3, especially when I use the highest quality. What you will hear is the first hour of the recording. I did scope out periods of silence (where I had turned the radio off) and full songs. This will post in MANY parts, and not all on the same day. It’s somewhat labor-intensive to go through 72 hours of recording to pull out anything relevant to our listeners.
I hope you enjoy!
