[Description by Uncle Ricky for this exhibit contributed by Don Jennett]
A scoped partial version of this exhibit has been on REELRADIO since May of 2000, and now, in memory of Dave Diamond who passed on May 5, 2014, here are the entire three hours of the last Diamond Mine program on KBLA.
There were some small technical problems with the original tape, resulting in a few places where speed is lost. Three songs were restored because they were incomplete or for technical reasons. At one point, it sounds like the radio was tuned away for a few seconds, and then tuned back. There's an odd "acoustic" effect on portions of the last 90 minutes, mostly noticeable on voice. Gary Whitaker handles news.
There's plenty of pomp at the end, as KBLA becomes KBBQ.
