More Offbeat Music Digitized

Completed the digitization from the original "broadcast" copy audio cassettes of episodes 12-15 of "The TRS Music Show", recorded during my friends and I "fake radio show" producing days in the 1980's.

My first intention when I thought up the series was to have other Tape & Record Show Enterprises members in rotation as co-hosts from week to week, but it seems James Stricklin, Jerry Sanders, and Randy Haney were usually "out of pocket" for the recording sessions at the time of production, so as a result, Paul Morrison co-hosted on the majority of episodes. My "observations" about the episodes below are after listening to them for the first time in decades.

Since the only ACTUAL "listeners" we had at the time were the members of TRSE, I had to take "liberties" to use as "plot devices". I used an actual co-worker's name from Burger King in episode 12 as being someone who supposedly "requested" a song, which I completely diverted to a different song as the song played, for comedy effect. In real life, Cheryl Easterling would have NEVER sent a request to hear "You Light Up My Life" by Debbie Boone. She would have requested something from Prince. I just thought Debbie Boone in contrast to what was actually played would be funnier. After the song played, Paul made a comment about Debbie Boone being so "goody goody" she made Marie Osmond look like a "slut".

I had Paul in defensive mode in episode 13, with a song I claimed was "requested" by his then actual girlfriend Debbie Salisbury, then a risque follow-up song after that which I said included things he'd probably like to "do" with Debbie. Luckily, she never heard the "broadcast", since, as stated before, these were "pretend" radio shows.

More "politically incorrect" comments from Paul at the end of episode 14 after the songs by Culture Club and Moe Bandy/Joe Stampley.

Episode 15 had another fake request from Paul's girlfriend Debbie. All the times I worked that into the show, it's a wonder Paul still co-hosted. If he had stopped co-hosting, "The TRS Music Show" would have become "extinct" rather quickly.

Contents of the four episodes digitally transferred this evening, as described on the original handwritten "broadcast" index cards in the files...
