[Description by Uncle Ricky]

The venerable Sam Van Zandt sounds fine here, but the format is insane. I'm sure there was some reason why Sam had to backsell songs after a long commercial set, but any advantage seems lost now. If it was intended to create confusion, it did. It almost sounds like an automation system with bad programming, the pieces out of order. Van Zandt had much better placement at other stations in the Bay Area over the years.

This is a somewhat distorted mono cassette recording of a stereo FM broadcast, so we're always on the edge here, hoping it will improve. Turns out the best improvements are Sam, and Bill Larson with ABC Contemporary News.

There's a Public Affairs segment with Leora Johnson, all about clean indoor air, where we learn that We ARE The ONE - KAY ONE OH ONE! There's a HOT jingle, too.
