Beaker Street's Last "Final Day", Feb. 6, 2011, Part 5

Herewith, the last part we have to offer of the last Beaker Street from KKPT, February 6, 2011.  No weeping here, dear reader- KKPT's loss is someone else's gain.  To be sure, we will continue to archive past Beaker Street programs here on The Mighty 1090 Blogspot to enjoy any time you wish, 24 hours a day, 365 and a quarter days a year...all due to the magic of archiving and computers and the hard work of the founders of this blog and of YOU, dear reader, who have sent in copies of your recordings.

Whether studio recordings or off-the-air airchecks, all are valuable.  Yes, those needle pops on the LPs, the slight atmospheric fade of signal (yes, they occasionally happened, as with any radio signal, even the Gentle Giant!), all created a wonderful sense of nostalgia listening to them today.  You better bet I'll continue searching not only for other Beaker Street material, but for other KAAY audio, as well.

So, with that said, please enjoy this last hour of the last Beaker Street on KKPT...compliments of the computer work of Dave S.:

KAAY, 1966 to 1985...after a pause, KLAZ, then to KZLR (what are they now?), to Magic 105, to KKPT, 2011...it was a long run.  Yes, I wish Clyde had kept a journal....

...but, Clyde mentioned that he's still scheming...stay tuned!

  1. Sounds like he was playing the "Cannabis Sativa" background track backwards. It is funky as-is but backwards is even more so.
