From the original uploader:
Thanks to Harvey Lubar for the seed and Tony Cortazzo for supplying me with
a copy. Thanks to Chuckles for instigational services.

t01 – Truckin’ is only a 00.45 second fragment with the DJ talking over
at the end.
t02 – Includes DJ intro during the first few seconds. Garcia’s vocals are
low in the mix throughout.
t03 – FM static @ 01:54. FM dropouts at 03:51 & 03:54 were removed leaving
a splice. Garcia’s vocals are low in the mix until roughly 03:10
where they return to full strength.
t04 – FM dropout at 0:02 was removed leaving a splice.
t05 – Garcia’s vocals partially dropout at 03:32.
t12 – FM static @ 04:03.

Entire disc was retracked with CDWave

As an overall note when I received this recording it contained a large number
of pops & clicks, plus some scattered level fluctuations. I used Cool Edit
2000 to individually fix a lot of these problems. No noise reduction or
processing was used! All fixes were done by individually repositioning the
waveform. All told I probably fixed more than 200 clicks so there were too
many to list in this file. I also normalized a few spots of over saturated
levels. In some cases I was not able to identify the problem within the
waveform so a number of anomalies, typical for a 35 year old FM recording,
still remain. However, I think the end result is an improvement over the
previous version.

1970/10/04 Winterland, San Francisco

There is no Grateful Dead music in this recording, but it seemed best to label it as a companion to the Dead’s show.
This is the radio broadcast of the set-break between the Dead’s and Airplane’s sets. The show was a quadraphonic broadcast (two radio stations and KQED-TV), and an unknown taper captured the intermission after the Dead’s show in this recording.
In the KSAN broadcast, KSAN DJ Dusty Street wanders around interviewing various people backstage at Winterland about the show, including Marmaduke and Pigpen. There’s some talk about the recording and broadcasting, and the experience at Winterland. Dusty finds out midway that Janis Joplin has just died.
In one channel (at lower volume) is the simultaneous KQED broadcast – you can hear some talking onstage and part of Pink Floyd’s Saucerful of Secrets album.
This copy is incomplete, it fades at the end as the Airplane are getting ready to go on. I don’t know whether the other set-breaks or music sets taped from this source still survive, but hopefully a more complete tape will emerge.

Lineage unknown.
Thanks to Barry Smith.
