This aught to keep you busy on the long weekend...
I am beginning to go through some old cassette tapes and record them to MP3. I used to record radio broadcasts. I paused during commercials and sometimes there are abrupt beginning and endings to tunes, along with awkward endings to DJ chatter.
I make no apologies for the recording quality, it is what it is. But I always particularly liked this set as it was a nice mix of music from that time period.
KUSF is a college radio station run out of the University of San Francisco. Still entertaining at times today.
