Welcome to the third episode of the Technological Retreat podcasts. One of the things I enjoyed most about late-night radio was the creative freedom. More often than not, the radio stations were just thankful to have people up there let alone caring what they did, as long as it followed FCC guidelines and decorum of course. This was before the age of robot DJ’s and audio software.
The three mixes in this episode are from the same night, February 3, 1986. The first mix is from 2:00 AM, and begins with a live recording of Charles Bukowski reading his own work, mixed with South Indian vocal music. The second mix started around 2:45 AM and the third around 3:15 AM.
