1982 Halloween Recordings

Just completed and now listening to the digitized and filtered MP3 version via the Sound Forge software of the 10/30/1982 Skatetown audio recording after changing the housing of the inner tape due to the major "technical difficulty" mentioned earlier. Sounds better than the version I made with Audacity, but there is NO way to clean up the distortion in the audio, being how it was originally recorded, with a monophonic Craig brand audio cassette recorder with an external Radio Shack dynamic microphone (used a AAA battery). Less hiss in the transfer however. Music in the rink was loud, so it was distorted. As a result, everyone had to talk loud into the mic, thus more distortion. Frankly, I'm amazed it sounded as "decent" as it did.
