50 year anniversary New Years tape

Post by km1125 » Wed Nov 06, 2019 2:40 pm

I have a reel-to-reel tape of JP McCarthy's "New Years night" countdown on WJR from Dec 31, 1969.

I don't recall exactly how long it is, but it's several hours. He rotates between playing songs and then interviewing the various singers between the songs. Don't know if he did it live or was pre-recorded, but several of the interviews he asked the folks what they're doing for the evening and just a little more light banter. Each one is fairly short, just filling the gaps between songs.

Think I might play it on the evening of Dec 31, seeing that it will be exactly 50 years since it was recorded.

Thinking about streaming it or converting to an MP3. Anybody interested?

Sounds like a great idea!


The only time when it would ever be necessary to be political is if our right to pursue our happiness is taken away. Otherwise, leave politics to politicians!

I have one of Dick Purtan's from the 60s or early 70s.

I just connect the audio to a laptop and record to an MP3. If you want to upload to youtube, you have to make it a video. Could be just simple slide with the audio information attached. I use lightscribe to edit video, but any video editor could do it.

I think that you have to edit the music down to a few seconds in and out to avoid copyright static from YouTube, then you can post it.
