Drake Chenault Radio Tapes
04/28/17 at 04:55:50
Here is a fascinating revelation about how radio station tapes were made...  This particular company is only one of several. Of the many different companies I have collected tapes from, these are generally not the best sounding.  And after hearing them for years even on the radio back in the 70's, I now know why they needed a loudness button to sound right...


Great read.

In that last box of tapes I gave you, was a reel of commercials from Allied Electronics in Chicago, probably from the 50s. They sounded so amazing, so LIVE, that I had friends mesmerized with them for 20 minutes.
