What's a Logger Tape?

Few stations made them, but some did, mostly for legal purposes. They were legal proof that a commercial played, or that the DJ or newscaster said something, or didn't. Typically, these recordings were made at 15/16 ips (inches per second) and the fidelity was hardly better than a small portable radio, even when recorded off the station's air monitor. And most of them were destroyed when the lawyers said they could be, or when they became too old to re-use. Only a few survived, like this one recovered by Charlie Ritenburg from tapes saved for over twenty years by former CKLW jock Scott Miller.
[Description by Uncle Ricky. Exhibit contributed by Andy Bologovsky]

Ted Richards finishes his show from the same date, and the late Mike Kelly (d. August 13, 2005) closes out this exhibit with the beginning of his show from June 29, 1973. Once again, we're treated to Grant Hudson and a fierce CKLW newscast. And we have more of Mike Kelly to share.

This recording, like the previous CKLW Logger Tapes (1, 2, 3) recovered from the original logger reels by restorian Charlie Ritenburg, is comparable to a recording made from a narrow-band AM receiver in the local signal area of the mighty CKLW.
