What tapes do you have?

"Cruisin' 1961" certainly doesn't sound quite like the original, but it is
almost the next best thing.  The 1985 WROR Reunion Weekend was a little
less fake.  It was actual radio, running much longer than one LP, and
included real commercials, promos, weather, etc.  It wasn't the real
thing, either, but it wasn't a bad re-creation.
