Editing notes:

* An 11-second station ID was removed at 3:58 into Track 5 then a crossfade was applied;
* A 0.34-second broadcast dropout at 49 seconds into Track 7 was repaired with a 0.8-second splice from a near-identical passage;
* Another 0.34-second broadcast dropout at 3:01 into Track 7 was repaired with a 1.6-second splice from a similar passage;
* A 0.05-second broadcast dropout at 56 seconds into Track 9 was removed;
* At 4:45 into Track 9 -- just as Track 10 song was starting -- there was a 78-second station id. I removed the station announcements, inserted a second of silence, and mostly retained WWOZ original's fade-up of the next song (Track 10);
* There was a glitch at 2:58 into Track 11 that I edited out;
* A 0.28-second broadcast dropout at 4:10 into Track 11 was repaired with a 5-second splice;
* A 0.12-second broadcast dropout at 5:43 into Track 11 was repaired with a 0.1-second splice then another 0.1 seconds was removed to fix the glitch;
* A -30db notch filter was used to remove the 19kHz FM pilot tone; and
* The entire recording was normalized by 1.31 then the left channel was boosted another 0.3 db, leaving about 0.10 db head room.
