Editing notes:
* A 0.2-second broadcast dropout occurred at 1:32 into Track 2; it was repaired with a 1.5-second splice from a near-identical passage;
* An 8.7-second station ID at 3:42 into Track 4 was removed and cross-faded;
* A 6.5-second station ID at 4:45 into Track 7 was removed and cross-faded;
* A few seconds later (also in Track 7, beginning of Track 8), I removed the first 31 seconds of a 65-second station ID and announcements. I retained the first part of the announcements as it plays on top of the beginning of the song;
* A 0.01-second glitch occurred at 4:03 into Track 9. It was edited out;
* A 14.2-second station ID at 3:48 into Track 12 was edited out and a cross-fade was applied;
* A -30db notch filter was used to remove the 19kHz FM pilot tone; and
* The entire recording was normalized by 1.75 then the left channel was boosted another 0.5 db, leaving about 0.10 db head room.

The broadcast mix of Track 2 is in flux for much of the song, with the volume of the left channel dropping then rising several times before resolving.

Tuba Skinny was scheduled to play the Economy Hall Tent from 4:25 p.m. to 5:25 p.m. on the first Friday of the 2024 Jazzfest.

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