I know of a number of stations where production outtakes were preserved for posterity. This one from KILT is probably my favorite. I'm sure that anybody who has been in the situation can relate to it. It could be frustrating at times, but at the end of the day was a lot of fun.
I think one of the voices on the tape is Rob McCloud, who worked at KILT around 1962-64. I recognize another voice on the tape to be Bob Presley. I think that's Bob on the "get bread at Henke's" spot.
I'm pretty sure it was already scoped when I got it. After being inspired by some of the recent restorations on REELRADIO, I though that this one would be fun to restore to its original form, the way it would have sounded at a party. Basically I did it with Cool Edit Pro, using a combination of hard cuts and crossfades. My copy was from a cassette, probably several generations down from the original master and thus rather bright and gritty, so some work with EQ was required. Also, speed variations between the tape and CD versions of the records were sometimes an issue which I more or less solved by trial and error using Cool Edit Pro's speed adjustment features.
