Since I tried to make "The TRS Scrap Pile" as "weird" as possible, I inserted a few VERY short snippits from the "Monty Python's Meaning of Life" soundtrack into The Time's "The Walk" song, and toward the end of the song, the sped-up Vincent Price laugh used at the close of every "Scrap Pile" episode.
Just a reminder, in case you've missed previous posts about my digitization project progress, Dennis Goodwin, who I met via the local record store he owned at the time, never ACTUALLY recorded a series for Tape & Record Show Enterprises, so I took the liberty to make one anyway. I recorded his KNLU radio show, and via editing, made half hour episodes from the actual weekly three hour local radio broadcasts. I remember taking an edited show to the record store for him to listen to. He didn't seem to have any complaints with the edited format. The original unedited versions of the shows I recorded from the radio are still in the TRSE "archives" as "master tapes", but for these transfers, I'm using the TRSE series "broadcast" versions, in other words, the half hour edited ones, since I'm more concentrated firstly on getting all the "series" we made back then transferred. I may decide to transfer a couple of the "master tapes" before I complete the others however at some point. Not sure the radio station, Dennis, or anyone else, still has copies of those original broadcasts after all these years.
I thought the tape I was using was going bad while dubbing episode 14 of "Independent Sampler" when I was hearing warbling during "Sixteen Candles", since I haven't listened to these tapes in ages, but Dennis explained later in the episode that is what happens when you don't have a 45rpm spindle adapter.
