One of my earliest off air radio recordings.
KMET-FM Live broadcasts every Saturday night from the BBC transcription discs.
This is from the original 1974 airing of this show in Los Angeles.
Lots of clean up needed for this one.
Many Pops and Crackles from the transcription disc were repaired.
I could not get it all so some surface noise still remains.
A few audio stream breaks were spliced back together (I think they came from my DAT).
Audacity was used to do this editing and to re-sample at 44.1 kHz.
Overall this tape has good stereo seperation and a minimum of hiss.
Classic BBC Radio.
