On tape 35, what is the song that starts at 23:25? I caught that it was by Xmal Deutschland but they did not mention the title.

Found it: 'Jahr um Jahr II'
I have to say I had never heard these guys before now. Sounds pretty good to me. Sort of halfway between Cocteau Twins and older Banshees.

Was just wondering if anyone knew whatever happened to the series "Songs that KROQ forgot", or something similar to this title. I saw a thread about it a while ago on the outpost, but haven't been able to find anything on the net. Looking on soulseek right now I see volumes 1 - 4 with song titles and no artist information. I think there were about 15 - 20 volumes all together. Anyone know anything about this series?

Nice stuff. Thanks. I used to have a lot of recorded radio: KBCO out of Boulder, KTCL of Ft. Collins, and KKFM Colorado Springs (before they went "format.") Unfortunately, those tapes are long lost.

I remember a KBCO tape I made in 1985 that had "What Do All The People Know" by the Monroes. I loved the song and played it to friends, but no one knew who it was. I think I finally found out in the late 90s.

May I resurrect this thread?

Really enjoyed the stuff posted by Rogger and DJCraig.

I have a few recordings that I can share too:
Sam Freeze May 15 1984
Jed the Fish on KWVE Sept 5 1984
Bangles filling in for Rodney Aug 25 1985 (still working on getting hour #2 into the 'puter, though....)

I have a few more that I need to transfer to computer too, and some that I can't find at the moment. Katy Manor on 91X, KCAL-FM "Noon Unit" program, Nina Hagen filling in for Rodney...

Well done Mesa Mike. Any chance you could put together lists of the choons that appear in those sets? More than a couple in there that I either knew but couldn't ID, or that I'd never heard before at all.

Thanks Mesa Mike! Really appreciated, great stuff - looking forward to further additions...

Just by chance, does anyone have vintage logos from those stations?

By the way, "Don't Go" by Yazoo that Jed the Fish played on the KWVE tape I believe was Side 2 of the Club Mix 12" single version of the song....

Hey, thanks for the new old KROQ stuff! If anyone else has anything, ESPECIALLY any old Loveline shows from the 80s or 90s, please post them or get in touch with me, my friend transfers old cassettes for free and would be happy to transfer any that anyone has, I'm sure.

This mykec guy seems to be a bit of a douchebag. He thinks we all owe him $ or to bow down to him with more files? What a complete poser. He deserves NOTHING. He was late to the game and won't share, unbelievable. He gets NOTHING. If anyone wants more kroq tapes I'll give them out for free at some point and if anyone can give me some of this mikec douchebags files.(just to piss him off of course), feel free to pm me.

I have about 14 tapes. 78-91. But I can get A LOT more. Most of my socal friends recorded kroq growing up and have tapes.

I also have some full love line tapes as well as love line stuff and kroq music from the early 90s and mid 90s.

Imo kroq was an utter fucking joke by 92 or so.

I think this is when CBS finally took over after it swallowed up infinity.

Coincidentally this was around the time(early 90s) when eMpTy-V turned to shit.(you know, shit-hop, sissy pop-punk(green day, offspring), worthless grunge, and other inane fuckcraps).

Henry rollins was right. Kroq turned into eddie vedder clone bands. "Welllll Yeaaaaaahh, hell yeaaaahh"

<br>Well, lunatic84, I'm right witch'ya. MykeC obviously recognizes that what he has produced through his tireless effort holds value for some, and that the sweat equity he has in this collection by working to generate the digital content from the analog source means something to him, and he figures it should probably mean something to others. I never said there was anything intrinsically wrong with holding an audio collection for trade. Everyone does that, and for the most part, it works. Everyone in the trade pool ends up with what they want. And, to be accurate, MykeC said that he *prefers* to trade for more KROQ recordings...not that he will *only* trade for more KROQ. But, with all that said, what we have here is a capture of free airwave transmissions, recorded at the time by others, and digitized by another. The original source material collection actually belongs to those who made their tapes available to MykeC to duplicate them in the digital domain. MykeC's "ownership" (if there really is any to be found outside of what the owners of KROQ can legally claim) is in the mastering work. Fine. To each, his own. Credit where credit is due. But MykeC really can't expect much more than the openly-voiced gratitude of those who would wish to have a copy of it all. If there is a trade that can be done, terrific. Both parties come out of it enriched with new content. But if a suitable trade is not in the offing, but the desire to acquire remains, then I believe there really should be nothing to inhibit making a copy available, no strings attached. Like I said earlier, if there is a concern for the ongoing integrity and identity of the collection, then there can be a gentleman's agreement that the copy provided not be disseminated any further. I have no problem with the holder of the digital collection reserving the right to control the manner and/or extent of the distribution of it. I just don't believe that it should be distributed ONLY if something of value is given in return. And again, I say, that MykeC says he only *prefers* to do it that way. So I'm hopeful that I can convince him to share a copy of the collection with me for the price of a DVD-R and postage.

Spot-on here. You may also want to see the 'When did KROQ start to suck?' thread.

Just emailed you neon, really interested in your Love Line and other KROQ tapes, and it'd be cool to hear your friends tapes too. I collect KROQ and love line stuff and recordings as a hobby, I'll have to post pics of the stuff I have.
