Editing notes:
* A 1.2-second broadcast dropout at 4:09 into Track 1 was closed up;
* A 91-second station id was removed at 2:55 into Track 4;
* An 11-second station ID was removed at 4:42 into Track 10; crossfade applied;
* A 0.14-second broadcast dropout at 5:19 into Track 10 fell in the middle of a word during Kermit's between-stage patter; I splice in a repair and closed up the gap but there's still an obvious glitch;
* A -30db notch filter was used to remove the 19kHz FM pilot tone; and
* The entire recording was normalized by 1.45 db, then the left channel was raised another 0.21 db.
