Got A Late Start

Didn't digitize much of the Tape & Record Show Enterprises "archives" this evening. Between the live "Stu's Show" running long, then afterwards spending time digging through the piles of mostly unorganized cassettes to attempt to locate the tapes needed for projects coming up soon, I didn't start on tonight's project until around 11:30pm...

"The Tape & Record Show: Episode 28. Broadcast Saturday, July 28,1979 at 2:00pm central. Theme Music: King Tut(Steve Martin and The Toot Uncommons). Elvis Presley "Aloha From Hawaii, Part One". Actress Ann-Margret hosts a retrospective of Elvis' 1973 TV special. Songs: See See Rider, Burning Love, Something, You Gave Me A Mountain, Steamroller Blues, Early Morning Rain. / Instrumental Interlude featuring music from the Harold Lloyd silent movie TV showings / Elvis special continued: My Way, Love Me, Johnny B. Goode, Blue Suede Shoes, I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry, I Can't Stop Loving You, Hound Dog, What Now My Love? / Will Rogers Commentary.

The Tape & Record Show: Episode 29. Broadcast Sunday, July 29,1979 at 2:00pm central. Theme Music: King Tut(Steve Martin and The Toot Uncommons). Elvis Presley "Aloha From Hawaii, Part Two". Actress Ann-Margret hosts a retrospective of Elvis' 1973 TV special. Songs: Fever, Welcome To My World, Suspicious Minds, I'll Remember You, Long Tall Sally, Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On, Hawaiian Wedding Song, Ku-u-i-po. / Instrumental Interlude featuring music from the Harold Lloyd silent movie TV showings / Elvis special continued: American Trilogy, Big Hunk of Love, I Can't Help Falling In Love With You. / Will Rogers Commentary / "Looney Tunes: Rabbit Romeo" - Elmer Fudd's Uncle Judd gives him a huge, lovesick Slobovian rabbit who falls for Bugs Bunny."

Since the "Tape and Record Show" Elvis NBC TV special episodes were "remastered" onto new cassettes back in 1988/89, I used audio from the VHS releases of the specials, so the main content of those remasters sound considerably better than the cassettes I originally recorded with a monophonic cassette recorder microphone held up to a 70's era TV speaker. The Ann-Margret segments have "authentic" sound quality however, since I had to use the tapes I recorded off the TV when NBC re-aired the specials after Elvis' death for her bumper segments. Those segments weren't on the VHS releases of the specials.

The "NRA" referred to by Will Rogers in his commentary in episode 28 was the "National Recovery Administration", NOT the current domestic terrorist organization.

Granted, the extended "Instrumental Interludes" to pad the episodes out to an hour could have been replaced with something more "exciting" in the remasters, but since that was what was used in the original "broadcast", I left it "as is" to recreate as close as possible the way I heard the shows when I originally pieced them together. I had a VERY limited budget at the time in 1979. Still almost a month before I'd turn 14.
