NEW RELEASES FROM THE 100 SERIES OF WOR AIRCHECKS 1974 -1977
More from a nearly complete run of the last few years of original WOR broadcasts. These represent the next 6 reels from a set of 70 reels. More will follow in the coming months and years. Sound quality ranges from only adequate on a few to pretty darn good - the masters are third generation AM airchecks, which is as close as I could find to the original tapes. These are complete shows with commercials.
Regular $6 per-tape prices apply, or Take Any Twelve for Only $55! That's right - make your own damn sets from the 100 series! You may combine these only with the 100 series A - D sets previously listed. This offer likely to be withdrawn at any time, so act before the end of the millennium. You may also select the groupings as offered. All 100 Series sets shipped in bookshelf cases at no additional charge. Regular clear soft-poly boxes available on request.
