"How Radio Was Done"  Part 85

1985 radio continues, but with a focus on TV. The computer age has arrived and we celebrate with bits from The Firesign Theatre’s ’85 release, “Eat Or Be Eaten,” followed by Max Headroom, his story and a mix of the BBC pilot show introducing him, and a “live” appearance with David Letterman. Then the music biz (Fantasy Records) and the “Copyright On Love,” and we move into the country with cowboy truckers, their music, and some truck stuff from OTE in ’85. Then the pesky Soviets again and an on-air call to Radio Moscow from OTE in ’85.

3 Hours.
