My friend Gary Shurtleff reminded me (nicely) that I have a bunch of his cassettes that need to be digitized, so I dug a few out and got to work on them. The first one is a killer time capsule- Ron Quintana’s Rampage Radio show from 1987! Gary said he would stay up until 2am so he could hit “record” and then listen the next day. I lived out of range of the station, so I never got to hear the show.
Listen for uncirculated(?) live recordings of Y&T, Metallica, and others. I think the Suicidal live is from Perkins Palace 1983.
Ron, did you ever get any crap from the FCC for profanity? That was complete insanity! Love it!!

I also found a killer noise reduction plugin for Sony Sound Forge, so you won’t be hearing any more tape hiss.
