Level the Vibes: October 9, 1995

April 24, 2018 – 10:20 am

This was the debut edition of Level the Vibes, my reggae radio show on college station WMWC. This is from shortly before fall break of my sophomore year, so I’m guessing that someone abandoned their slot and I was granted an extra show from 6-9pm on Monday nights (I was already hosting The Jazz Corner). I recorded this one on my computer via the newly-installed radiating FM cable that the station put in over the previous summer. Interestingly, the recording ends up sounding like an AM broadcast. Not exactly clean, but oh well.

Lots of great cart-based ads and station IDs on this episode that don’t exist on my other compilations of such things.

Playlist after the jump.
