Thanks to Chris Macias for uploading this one!

Growing up in #Sacramento during the 1980s, if the conditions were just right, you could get KPFA 94.1 from Berkeley on your radio.

The signal might be kind of janky, but it doesn’t matter. You hit “record” on the cassette player and let it roll on the Maximumrocknroll show.

All these years later, it’s a blast of NorCal punk/hardcore that still hits like the Reagan Years all over again

Fun fact: When I was helping Radley (original Gilman soundman & MRR Radio assistant) sell some stuff on ebay, he gave me 2 really cool things: The original P.A. from gilman, from the 80s, and the Ampex tape box that held MRR Radio show #1 on cassette. It would be recorded locally, then sent to a tape duplicator, then cassettes were sent to the radio stations for syndication.
