More Scrap Samplers And A Flagship

After taking a break last night, transferred more of the old Tape & Record Show Enterprises "broadcasts" from the old 1980's era audio cassettes to a more modern medium... listed in the order of conversion...

"Orbit's Independent Sampler: Episode 15. Broadcast Wednesday, November 5, 1986 at 8:00pm central. Theme Music: The Peter Gunn Theme(The Blues Brothers Band). Host: Dennis Goodwin. Songs include: How Much Tequila Did I Drink Last Night(Steve Goodman), Bad Connection(Rosslyn Mountain Boys), To Be Alone With You(Bob Dylan), Walk of Life(Dire Straits), Along Came A Viper(Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks), Moody Park Riot(Jesse James), Be My Friend Tonight(John Prine), Loose and On My Way(Gary P. Nunn and the Lost Gonzo Band), Nights Never Get Lonely(Gary P. Nunn)."

"The TRS Scrap Pile: Episode 9. Broadcast Monday, May 21, 1984 at 9:30pm central. Theme Music: Burt Reynold's House/If You Love Me Tell Me Loud(John Morris/Mel Brooks). In this week's scrap pile: "The Monkees Theme"(The Monkees), "Barefoot Ballad"(Elvis Presley), Richard Pryor talks about prison, "Singin' In the Rain"(Taco Okerse), bloopers from "The James Stricklin Song Mirage" and "Jerry Sanders' Hit Parade", a scene from the film "Little Caesar" with Edward G. Robinson, "D.J."(David Bowie).

The TRS Scrap Pile: Episode 10. Broadcast Monday, May 28, 1984 at 9:30pm central. Theme Music: Burt Reynold's House/If You Love Me Tell Me Loud(John Morris/Mel Brooks). In this week's scrap pile: A spoof of MTV with the theme from "Gilligan's Island", "Fashion"(David Bowie), a scene from the first episode of "Gilligan's Island" which involves the building of the huts, "Icka Prick"(Funkadelic),"Harmonica Man"(Stevie Wonder), "This Is Your F.B. Ieata"(Spike Jones and His City Slickers, from their radio show)."

"The Tape & Record Show: Episode 17. Broadcast Sunday, July 15,1979 at 2:00pm central. Theme Music: Rockin' My Life Away(Jerry Lee Lewis). "Star Trek: Operation - Annihilate!" - The Enterprise crew attempts to stop a plague of amoeba-like creatures from possessing human hosts and spreading throughout the galaxy. / "Merrie Melodies: Lighthouse Mouse"."

Even though Dire Straits "Brothers In Arms" was on compact disc at the time (I had it in my collection...still do), the version Dennis played on the "Independent Sampler" episode was obviously from the LP version, judging from the occasional "crackle". Thinking back however, the university radio station (KNLU) where Dennis' show originated probably hadn't acquired CD equipment yet. It WAS a relatively new format at that time after all.

Just from the unaltered Richard Pryor segment on "The TRS Scrap Pile" episode 9 ALONE, not to mention the Funkadelic song in episode 10, it should definitely be OBVIOUS we weren't a REAL "radio show" production company. There would be so many FCC fines from THOSE parts alone, TRSE, the broadcasting radio stations, etc, would be fined out of existence! Episode 9 of the show also has some narration from me on the "blooper" segments. Rare for any narration to appear on the "Scrap Pile", but guess I thought it was necessary for "context".

Lastly, transferred tonight was episode 17 of the "flagship" series of the TRSE organization, "The Tape & Record Show", WAY back when it was me alone. It was a daily show that year. If you've read previous posts, you may notice Saturday, July 14th is "missing". In this case, it isn't because the source is missing, it's because our first "repeat" was "broadcast" that day. It was a repeat of episode 2 (yes, I've kept written records all these years). Episode 17 marks the show's first theme music change, from "Beethoven's 5th" to Jerry Lee Lewis "Rockin' My Life Away". Also, the first time you hear me announcing the show during the theme. Being I used an external microphone from a portable monophonic cassette player to record the source material back then from the TV speaker, you hear a phone ring in a dramatic part of the "Star Trek" episode at one point. It was the house phone, which was in the same room as the one TV in the house at the time. Also, like in the "Salvage 1" episode the previous weekend, I inserted the cartoon short soundtrack (as "filler" material) in the middle of the episode, so the transition might be "jarring" with no narration. Heck, I was a month short of 14 years old at the time, what'd ya expect?
