WMWC Skimmer Tape #3 (September 1997)

September 18, 2019 – 5:29 pm

As is common on college radio, we occasionally ran a skimmer at WMWC. A skimmer would record airbreaks anytime the DJs would turn their mics on. The idea was that station management would listen for profanity, extraneous talking, etc. Truth is, we never really did. And annoyingly, DJs (including me) would sometimes leave their mic on while playing music, filling up the tape way too quickly with music.

A few years ago I posted what I thought was the only skimmer tape from WMWC, but I was surprised to find a second unlabeled one a few months ago and now… a third. Only side A had anything. Side B was blank.

This tape is from Family Weekend 1997, Friday September 26 and Saturday September 27.
