Note: There was a dropout and likely some glitches in the recording that were inherent in the FM broadcast AND the online mp3 stream. The glitches seem to be related to the station's use of a computer for recording or processing that seems to get overwhelmed or overloaded, possibly from an overloaded processor, a too-slow hard-drive or a fragmented drive. The glitches sound sort of like a single note repeating itself over the space of a fraction of a second. The issues have plagued WWOZ's live broadcasts for years.
Where possible the dropouts and glitches were repaired or removed:
* A 0.85-second dropout at 1:57 into Track 4 was closed up.
