Greg Barman: Clyde Clifford interview by Jim Snowbarger, 1995

Beaker Street fans, I think you will enjoy this.  In 1995 Clyde Clifford did this telephone interview with Jim Snowbarger, a self-described radio nut, KAAY fan, electrical engineer and internet radio producer/host in Marshalltown, Iowa (it's near Des Moines).  Jim sent me a copy of the interview a few years ago, and he has given me his okay to pass it along to this blog.

The interview last about 29 minutes and Clyde talks about:  The beginnings of Beaker Street; how the background music bed came about; the spookiness of the KAAY transmitter site; the transmitter studio equipment; the last Beaker Street show on KAAY; Beaker Street on FM (1995); Clyde's day job; and why he's still unflappably happy.
