I recorded this several years ago. The reason I never shared it is the big “hum” and other noise in this recording, especially in the Intro DJ and the first 2 minutes and 2 seconds of Eggs And Sausage. I tried to clean it, but wasn’t able to remove the “hum” without damaging music. The interfering noise reduces during the course of the show.

Om 2016-12-26 there was a rebroadcast. Unfortunately I was driving home from work at the beginning of the broadcast. I drove as fast as possible but only managed to record (this time digital) the last 2,5 songs (not added to this upload).

In the intro Hubert tells us he doesn’t know who recorded this. He was present at the show but he had the flu. He was covered with a blanket because of the fever. Two days later the flu was over. He calls it “The healing force of music”.

  1. This one has been floating around in parts only for some time. There’s a Japanese CD FM recording, but again incomplete due to the whole show not being broadcast. Who knows maybe some day.
