Editing notes:
* A 0.31-second dropout (inherent in the broadcast) could not be repaired with a splice so the silence was removed and a very slight crossfade was applied at 2:28 into track 4;
* About 1.6 seconds later (still in Track 4), there was an audible glitch (skip) that I massaged by removing about 0.1 seconds and crossfading;
* A dropout of about 0.5 seconds occurred at 2:02 into Track 5. It could not be fully repaired, so a similar, partial 0.25-second passage was spliced in and about .25-seconds of silence was removed. Then a very slight crossfade was applied;
* A 66-second station ID was removed at the end of Track 3; it was replaced with 1 second of silence and track 3 was faded down;
* A -30db notch filter was used to remove the 19kHz FM pilot tone; and
* The entire recording was normalized by 1.79 db, leaving about 0.10 db head room.

Robert Finley was scheduled to play the Blues Tent from 1:45 to 2:40 p.m. on the first Thursday of the 2024 Jazzfest. The set was broadcast live by WWOZ-FM.

This over-the-airwaves FM broadcast was recorded by Richard Russell (nolataper) in New Orleans. It is not from the online mp3 live stream.
