What's a Logger Tape?

Few stations made them, but some did, mostly for legal purposes. They were legal proof that a commercial played, or that the DJ or newscaster said something, or didn't. Typically, these recordings were made at 15/16 ips (inches per second) and the fidelity was hardly better than a small portable radio, even when recorded off the station's air monitor. And most of them were destroyed when the lawyers said they could be, or when they became too old to re-use. Only a few survived, like this one recovered by Charlie Ritenburg from tapes saved for over twenty years by former CKLW jock Scott Miller.
[Description by Uncle Ricky. Exhibit contributed by Andy Bologovsky]

About an hour into Part Three of the CKLW logger tape from June 29, 1973, we're treated to Grant Hudson and a bit of that famous blood 'n' guts news style, but the rest of the 79 minute exhibit features Ted Richards and a great mix of music from The Big 8.

Like the previous CKLW Logger Tapes (1, 2) recovered from the original logger reels by restorian Charlie Ritenburg, this exhibit is easily comparable to an EXCELLENT recording made from a narrow-band AM receiver in the local signal area of the mighty CKLW.
