**NOTE: Some tapes may be appear to be off-speed. Last week’s offering of 3KZ certainly was! The good news is that we traced the speed issue to the machine used to record it. No surprise either as often these would be recorded on the cheapest radio/cassette combos and they were frequently off.


2WS Bruce Barnett last show – March 20th 1981
Dur: 30’05”, Mono, 14 MB

**As you can probably tell this cassette presented an absolute challenge. It shed like nothing else – you’ll notice the signal becoming more and more muffled as the audio goes on. There was nothing that could be done, the tape carried extensive damage and this would’ve probably been the last ever playback that it was capable of.
