The source info, according to Ted: The Museum of TV & Radio in NYC dubbed his original reel-to-reel tape and a friend converted it to CDR.

Or, in more detailed fashion:

museum of tv & radio in nyc dubbed the original reel
to reel on to cassette for their listening archives
(museum of tv & radio in beverly hills also gets
copies).

a friend converted it to cdr also from the original
reel to reel (lost touch with him and never knew how
he converted analog to digital)

i recorded it at the kppc-fm 106.7 radio studio (at 99
south chester in pasadena, california near cal tech)
during the live broadcast on a scully tape deck (at
7.5 ips on quarter inch two track stereo 1.5 mil
acetate scotch audio tape); when the nrps song
louisiana lady was played on the scully tape deck in
the radio studio during the interview, the scotch
audio tape was moved to a similar scully tape deck in
the kppc-fm production studio down the hall to
continue taping the live broadcast; music played from
lps on turntables was scoped by stopping the tape
during the broadcast to make sure that the entire
interview would fit on our only blank tape available
at the time on a sunday afternoon.

peace, ted

  1. I love these out-of-the way tapes you find and post. The interview here is classic irreverent Jerry and Bob from the early days. They simply cannot help but give the interviewing DJ a hard time. Marmaduke explains how NRPS came together which I hadn’t heard or read before. And the short acoustic set is wonderful. Thanks so much for this little gem!
