DID YOU GROW UP IN THE FABULOUS 80's? OR DO YOU LOVE THE GREAT MUSIC OF THE 80's? DO YOU LIKE COUNTDOWNS, INTERVIEWS AND SPECIAL FEATURES?
T MEMORIES THAT YOU CAN RELIVE ANYTIME YOU WANT JUST BY PUTTING THIS INTO YOUR REEL TO REEL TAPE PLAYER? WHAT IS REEL TO REEL? WEAR OUT, OR SHOW ANY WEAR AS CAN LPs AND CDs (with inherent CD rot), THIS IS IT!SO, BEFORE WE GO FURTHER, EXACTLY WHAT IS A' SUB MASTER. WHEN A FINAL RECORDING IS MADE OF AN ALBUM OR RADIO SHOW, IT IS A' MASTER', THE ORIGINAL.
THE'MASTER' IS PRECIOUS BECAUSE IT IS THE ONLY ACTUAL FINAL RECORDING OF WHAT WAS PRODUCED. ANY FIRST GENERATION PRESSING OF THAT ORIGINAL IS CALLED A' SUB MASTER'. IT IS THE BEST REPRODUCTION OF THE MASTER THAN CAN EVER EXIST. IN TODAY'S DIGITAL WORLD, THOSE MASTERS ARE EASILY PROTECTED FROM DAMAGE BUT BACK'IN THE DAY' AS WE SAY, MASTERS WERE USUALLY ON HUGE REEL TO REEL TAPE REELS AND COULD BE EASILY DESTROYED, LOST, OR DAMAGED BY FIRE, NEGLECT, OR JUST BY BEING BULK ERASED AND REUSED BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT THOUGHT TO BE OF ANY FUTURE VALUE. (THIS WOULD BE ESPECIALLY TRUE OF RADIO SHOWS).
I KNOW, IN FACT, THAT MANY OF THE LARGEST SYNDICATORS OF RADIO SHOWS DELETED ALL THE PAST SHOWS AFTER THE SERIES ENDED OR MOVED TO ANOTHER SYNDICATOR. MANY OF THE GREATEST DJ's OF THE ROCK ERA DON'T EVEN HAVE COPIES OF THEIR OWN SHOWS FOR THIS REASON. RADIO SHOW'MASTERS' IN PARTICULAR WERE NOT KEPT BECAUSE AFTER THE SHOW WAS PRESSED ON LP FROM THE MASTER AND SENT TO THE AFFILIATE STATION, THEY WERE NO LONGER NEEDED. THEY WERE MOST OFTEN TRASHED OR TAPED OVER FOR A FUTURE SHOW.IN SUCH A CASE, THE' SUB MASTER' WOULD BE THE NEXT GENERATION AND ONLY REMAINING PRISTINE COPY OF THE SHOW. KEITH'S KOLLECTABLES STRONGLY SUGGESTS TO YOU THAT YOU ADD THESE UNIQUE SHOWS TO YOUR COLLECTION, THAT YOU PLAY IT ONCE ONLY TO PROTECT ITS RARENESS. DOWNLOAD IT TO YOUR COMPUTER, CONVERT IT TO AN MP3, WAV, AND/OR CDs, AND STORE THE ORIGINAL SHOW FOR THE FUTURE. THE TAPE IS A GRT AUDIO MASTER TAPE ONE OF THE BRANDS MOST OFTEN USED BY RADIO SHOW PRODUCERS. THERE ARE NO LITERALLY NO OTHER SUBMASTER TAPES AVAILABLE OF THIS SHOW IN THIS CONDITION!
THERE IS NO WAY I CAN IMPRESS UPON MY FELLOW COLLECTORS HOW UNIQUE THIS PRESENTATION IS. IN A WAY, IT DOES NOT MATTER IF YOU ARE A COLLECTOR OF THE GROUP PRESENTED, IT IS A TREASURE THAT PROBABLY SHOULD BE IN THE SMITHSONIAN AND NOT IN AN INDIVIDUAL'S COLLECTION. A FINAL IMPORTANT WORD TO YOU.
THIS IS NOT A STANDARD REEL TO REEL TAPE DESIGNED FOR HOME USE. THE TAPE IS ON A LARGE REEL THAT WILL NOT FIT ON A STANDARD CONSUMER BRAND REEL TO REEL RECORDER AND PLAYER. IN ORDER TO LISTEN TO IT, SHOULD YOU DESIRE TO DO SO, YOU WOULD NEED TO SPOOL THE TAPE ON TO TWO NORMAL REELS DESIGNED FOR CONSUMER USE OR HAVE IT PROFESSIONALLY TRANSFERRED FOR YOU.IT WOULD NOT BE A DIFFICULT TASK FOR YOU TO DO AT HOME IF YOU HAVE A REEL TO REEL UPRIGHT RECORDER/PLAYER SUCH AS A SONY MODEL. IT WOULD BE QUITE DIFFICULT IF YOU OWNED A MACHINE THAT LAY FLAT AND NOT UPRIGHT. PLEASE REMEMBER MY SPECIAL OFFER TO FELLOW COLLECTORS. IT IS THE LEAST I CAN DO FOR EVERYONE WHO LOOKS FOR GREAT DEALS JUST AS I DO. AND IF YOU COMBINE THE ABOVE WITH KEITH'S KOLLECTABLES ONE HALF AND REDUCED PRICE WEEKLY SPECIALS TO WHICH KEITH ADDS DAILY, YOU WILL SAVE MORE.... LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THIS SHOW AND THEN IF YOU DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT RADIO SHOWS KEEP READING AND I WILL GIVE IT MY BEST SHOT FOR YOU.

READ ON FOR A DESCRIPTION OF THIS SHOW AND SERIES AND IF YOU ARE INTERESTED AND DO NOT KNOW MUCH ABOUT RADIO SHOWS, PLEASE READ ON FOR MY HUMBLE'RADIO SHOWS 101'. A DICK AND JANE PRIMER ABOUT THEIR HISTORY NOT DICK AND JANE, BUT RADIO SHOWS! THE HOT ONES WITH DAVE ROBERTS AIRED WEEKLY FOR ONE HOUR ON THE LEGENDARY RKO RADIO NETWORKS AND FOR ITS FINAL YEAR ON THE NEWLY FORMED UNITED STATIONS RADIO NETWORK. IT WAS A LEGENDARY AND IS SOUGHT AFTER BY COLLECTORS BECAUSE THERE ARE SO FEW AVAILABLE.
IT COMES ON ONE LP IN MINT NEW CONDITION ALONG WITH ITS CUE SHEETS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. On the air, Dave Roberts was a smooth, straight-ahead Bay Area disc jockey hosting the afternoon drive for KYA and K101. Off the air he was Dr. Dave, " armed with a doctorate in communications research and a knack for launching and driving radio formats "Dave was energetic, but not in a hyped-up, Top-40 style, said Ben Fong-Torres, longtime radio columnist for The Chronicle.
He did the right thing for any format he was working. His voice was heard nationwide on "The Hot Ones With Dave Roberts, " an interview show syndicated to 200 stations, and "American Top 40, " where he filled in for legendary radio host Casey Kasem. As a program director, Roberts' boldest move was to switch KCBS-FM from classic hits to album-oriented rock.
He came up with the call letters KRQR and the handle the Rocker. When KRQR went live in 1982, it became one of the last hit stations in the golden age of album-oriented rock. "KCBS was a stodgy oldies format, and New York management did not think it would be CBS to play hard rock, " said Peter B. Collins, morning host on KRQR. Dave did the research and proved them wrong.
KRQR lasted for 10 years and bested KMEL and KKCY ("The City"). We even beat KFOG in some years. That success got him a promotion to director of programming for CBS FM stations nationwide.
"Dave gave me my big break, and the big breaks for many other people, " Collins said. He was a good guy in an industry with a lot of creeps. David Bob Kelliher was born Nov. 1, 1948, in Los Angeles, where he grew up spinning the dial on a transistor radio.At Yucaipa High School, east of Los Angeles, he played trumpet in the marching band until he was kicked out for riffing a solo during the national anthem. He later played trumpet and guitar in the Peppermint Trolley Company, a six-piece prom band with a recording contract and regular gigs at Disneyland. He served out his tour as a radio and TV producer for the Marine Corps. His deep voice also earned him the job of narrator for "Moments of Valor, " a program syndicated by the Marines.
After his discharge in 1970, Roberts used the GI Bill for nine years of college, culminating in his doctorate from the University of Oregon. At one of his first radio jobs, a station manager told him the name David Kelliher would never cut it on air. When Kelliher said his middle name was Bob, he became Dave Roberts, though nobody away from work ever called him that. In the late 1980s, Roberts left radio stations to form a consulting firm with Dave Cooke, a former news director. Roberts/Cooke Media Research and Resources operated out of Roberts' house in Mill Valley.
He was able to combine these talents and skills to effectively interpret what stations needed to do to improve their ratings. At the time, Roberts was married to Pam Hamilton, who ran the public relations firm Hamilton Ink, also out of their home in Mill Valley. That marriage ended in divorce and soon after, Roberts met attorney Marsha Cox at a party. They became part of a circle of friends that toured Italy in the summer of 1992, and along the way, Roberts proposed.
It was sometime later that Cox learned "that my last name was not going to be Roberts, but Kelliher, " she recalled. I'd never heard the name Kelliher before, which was odd because I had met his parents.It was smoothed over just in time to correct the wedding invitations. The ceremony was held at Landmark Vineyards in Kenwood in January 1993. After a short stint in Mill Valley, they moved to Austin, Texas, where they lived for 20 years. Roberts built a broadcast studio in their home and did radio and TV voice-over work. When they moved to Michigan, Roberts built another recording studio and continued to work up until his health became a full-time job.
Dave was a really funny and happy-go-lucky guy. Everybody liked him, Cooke said. He was also one of the smartest and nicest people I have ever known. This show aired on JANUARY 2, 1984 AND FEATURED A FULL HOUR OF THE STRAY CATS, IN STUDIO WITH DAVE ROBERTS FEATURING INTERVIEWS AND COMMENTARY ABOUT THEIR HISTORY AND THEIR MUSIC. EVEN THE COMMERCIALS ARE FUN TO LISTEN TO AFTER ALMOST 40 YEARS.FUNNY HOW WE HATED THEM THEN BUT NOW THEY BRING BACK FOND MEMORIES. You will love these shows and they belong in your collection. Please remember, each show I list is the ONLY pure sub mastered copy of the original master and will have none of the imperfections of an lp which as rare as it is can still have some pops and skips. SO HERE ARE THE BIG QUESTIONS IF YOU DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT RADIO SHOWS. WHAT IS A RADIO SHOW? WHERE DO THEY COME FROM? Well, those are good questions, especially if you have never known of them. First allow me tell you my own personal story of discovering the wonder of radio shows.
I discovered radio shows quite by accident while reading one of my favorite (long since departed) magazines called "Discoveries" It was later bought by the same company that publishes "Goldmine" which I personally always considered a lesser publication, but that is another story. I was especially attracted in "Discoveries" to a two page (or more) spread in each issue by a guy called "The Old Hippie". Let me tell you, the Old Hippie had it all.
He was a real pioneer. Way before anyone knew what radio shows even were let alone that they could be bought as rarities, he had the market cornered. Most shows that he advertised were way beyond my budget but I drooled over those pages every issue and once in awhile I could afford one or two.
Now, I have attempted in my own humble way to take on the mantle of "The Old Hippie". I have listed over 11,000 unique radio shows of all genres for you all to drool over, and most at prices, hopefully, that collectors can better afford! I want to make available to collectors what I could not afford and especially in these days of higher prices and lesser availability. Radio shows are harder and harder to find in quantity and the prices for the ones still out there just go higher and higher as they disappear from the market. So, again, what is a radio show?Radio Shows are syndicated productions by one of several large and small distributors who supply broadcast product to radio stations normally during weekends when the usual air personalities have a break. Many air on Saturday or Sunday mornings, afternoons or evenings or less often during overnight segments. They often feature some of the best known voices for their genre from across the country thus the Dick Clark's and Casey Kasem's and Rick Dees and Dick Bartley and so many others. People collect them for various reasons.
Some just collect the series because they like it and want them all. Some collect their favorite artists or genre of music.
Rather than an album by the artist or a compilation, they have a unique presentation of their favorite artist or music not available anywhere else and often with dj presentation which is very entertaining. Some collect interviews with their favorite artists as most shows had interview segments. Some collect commercials especially old car commercials but certainly not limited to only those.
AND, these shows are in limited quantity. They were pressed just for affiliate stations and many have just a few in circulation. Some of the more popular shows may have as many as a few hundred of each week's show that survived but think about it. A few hundred for some 200 million Americans and millions of overseas collectors who look for unique presentations of their favorite artists or form of music.
Many radio stations just tossed them away after airing because they could never be aired again due to the time limited commercials and the limited storage space at most radio stations believe me I know, I worked at one for over seven glorious years as an oldies dj! SO they are increasingly hard to find. They were first distributed on reel to reel tape or on lp, later on CD and even later (after 2000 for most shows) on CDR. Now they are not available at all to collectors since they are distributed by digital download much like you get your music from iTunes.The shows that you get now and hold on to will never decrease in value and only increase. I sell them for near what I bought them for. Finally, it is Americana at its best. Whether the show be from the 60's or 2000's, rock, countdown, oldies, country, classical, religious, jazz or big band, it is unique and home grown. And you just can't find them anywhere. Even record stores that still exist will rarely have any.
Radio shows are wonderful representations of the real golden age of radio at least music wise. Once you get hooked, like me, it is a love affair for life! Also, keep in mind that this and all shows are not just about the music - the music can be found anywhere.
It is the mixture of great music and great announcing that makes it so entertaining. As well, it is a piece of radio history.
You just aren't going to find these shows anymore. Think of what they will be worth in a few years! IF you wanted to sell. Good Luck and God Bless You.
