WHB-AM 710 Kansas City MO Bobby Day 1972

Bobby Day was the 6:00-10:00PM jock on WHB Radio SEVENTY-ONEderful during the early 1970s.  Unfortunately, this  is a short clip.  The audio quality is only fair.  I was 8 years old at the time and received the broadcast from Apple Valley, Minnesota, approximately 420 miles from Kansas City. 

This recording was made using a Spartan/Atlantic “shoebox” cassette recorder.  I placed the pencil microphone directly next to the speaker of my extremely cheap Midland AM clock radio.  An Audio Magnetics 60 minute “bag cassette” tape completed my arsenal of highly sophisticated equipment.

All things considered, it’s amazing that I was able to grab this and that the tape is still playable after 47 years!
