Taped on four type I Memorex dBS 120 cassettes by Brian N., San Pedro, CA, from 106.7 KROQ-FM/Los Angeles, with no noise reduction. Includes some editing out of the commercials. Unsure of the actual day on which the countdown aired, so using New Year’s Eve as a guess.

 

Transferred to the digital world in October 2008 by Ron Gerber, played on Realistic SCT-41, no noise reduction, no EQ, no editing, no pitch correction. Just the cleanest, most un-futzed-with sound Ron could get off the cassettes.
