This is apparently WBCN's 1st live broadcast from the Channel, which was a rock club for years and host to many fine shows in boston. it is the whole show and being posted from my FM master recording, which had never been played for almost 28 years, since being recorded live over FM. some of "Adam and The Ants" are also in this group.

The lead singer was 16 years old at the time of this show. the radio announcer mentions that track 18 is sort of an anthem for home tapers and that this band is taper friendly. the first few seconds of track 16 (due to a tape flip) and the end of the closing radio credits are missing. all the other songs are complete. maybe a c-60 would have been better to avoid the cutin to track16, but who is to know before the show? I had never heard of this band before, and the radio DJ mentions this show being WBCN's 1st live broadcast from the Channel, which mainly hosted local bands who aren't really "big". this band wasn't around very long (began in 1981) and included some former members of "Adam and the Ants". -Original
