No 12: 1980 01 21 BBC1 114m52 FM (OSFA~MrU)

Now this one ,I had my own tape here of this somewhere in this AltUMRK of mine Laughing sadly havent been able to find it, a shame as I recorded the show using my NAIT02 Tuner Rolling Eyes . That would certainly have been a better version than this. That's not to say this isnt a bad version though. In answer to "knoots" comment of yesterday....
i really appreciate you upping these interview-bits, but maybe it's an idea to sort out the dates, completeness, etc before you upload any more? i have to agree with drew that this seems a bit messy.
.. I agree that one was, & did say at the beginning of that one, I would not be approaching that one again because of the content. Anyway these Interviews/Radio shows are as they were marked on the OSFA tapes in the box and after in excess of 3 years I feel I have spent more than enough time on them now.....please talk with MrsUMRK about that issue Laughing now on with the fun

OK peeps, I’ve had these transferred tapes (digitized) for approaching 3 years now………..heck where did that time go. Shocked[/color]

Before any further comment, I /we are indebted to MrOSFA for his , quite frankly, amazing patience , in waiting to see any of his work on the tracker (yes a few have already gone up, but I have had these for a long time).

Before various things stop me ever getting these out, I’m now making an enormous effort in getting them to you all.

Generally speaking this is how I’ve got to this point.
1: Transferred them….thanks to StatusBaby for letting me do this.
2: Returned box of tapes to be sealed up in zappateers vaults.
3: Supplied samples/fills of the shows as they’ve come up….ongoing.
4: Chosen “Interviews/Radio Shows” section to begin with to attempt to clear things up.
5: Noted ALL interviews already available on zt site.
6: 5 allowed me to more than half the list in the box.
7: Carried out limited work…as always. Only improving sound.
8: Discussed best way to provide these with members of zappateers.
9: Decided with very few exceptions to put up as single file/folders…for speed and my own benefit.
10: Now finally getting them to you now.

Now these Interviews/Radio Shows range from 35s to over 2 hours. No 1 being the 35s one. The quality ranges from A down to C..just. Anything of less than C quality, and there were some, was not fully digitized.

This particular topic…aka Interviews/Radio Shows is quite problematic to those of us that indeed have to go through all the tapes…eg in my “old” mp3 folder there are more than 500 separate interviews. Yep folks, still a long way to go to collect them all in LOSSLESS.

I have kept the songs themselves intact, rather than omit them…call it conceptual continuity.

My dearest wish is particular those that indeed have these tapes…preferably already digitized will hear these and with particular emphasis on the poorer quality ones be able to find amongst there own tapes better quality versions. This appears to me to be preferable to the already well worked. .but overloaded Samples/fills section……..methinks flambay is doing a wonderful job, but heck folks lets give him a break from any further additions to his workload……I’d like to propose that flambay for his efforts should be opted for peerage…aka not Mr but Lord flambay…Surprised

So you’ll now be seeing these Interviews/Radio shows daily (weekend excepted) for the foreseeable future then I’ll return to the remaining Vinyl “Liberated boots” when finished.

Perhaps 1 day I may get some rest and some space back on my hard drive…Surprised

Have a nice feb/march & early April.... Smile

as always , I have avoided ANY modifications to the original tape recording.......this as the info notes state is one of my own, so a known lineage from the boot itself ,I have also made note to remove any officially available material.

Please be aware that during peak time (4pm~midnight GMT) there are restrictions on my ISP, rest of 24 hrs is free for all so patience appreciated.

Thank you
                                                                                thank you
                                                                                                    and thankyou

cooler cooler cooler cooler cooler cooler cooler cooler cooler

Do what you want,do what you will,DON'T mess up your neighbours thrill.....Music is the best.

I'm just in the process of digitising this show myself, from the tapes I made when it was broadcast. I started to do this about 3 years ago (and knew that the show hadn't been uploaded at that point) but only found the last tape in a disused cupboard this morning! In the meantime I also lost the .wavs that I'd already transferred in a hard-drive crash earlier this year. I'd intended to see if it had already been uploaded here before I uploaded my own copy and have just found this post, so someone beat me to it. However, the notes on the original tapes I made show a different date. The date of the transmission when I recorded it from BBC Radio 1 was Sunday 1980-01-27, between 19.00-21.00 GMT. I suppose that it's quite possible that my recording was from a repeat broadcast but I'd be surprised if that were the case.
I think I'll have a crack at downloading this version as the tapes I used at the time weren't of great quality and if this is better than mine, it'll save me splitting my .wavs into individual tracks.
Thanks for the upload....I should have re-checked before I re-recorded it this afternoon!
