Tracking in Mobile

We suspected our town in central Wisconsin wasn’t the only place with something like “The Midnight Tracker” back in the ’70s.

That’s why we wanted to share this great comment from Steve:

Back in the 1970s, WABB-FM in Mobile, Alabama played an entire album each night at 10 p.m. I remember recording many albums on my 8-track recorder including Stevie Wonder’s “Fulfillingness’ First Finale” and Led Zeppelin’s “Presence”. I recall a DJ announcing on the radio for listeners to get their tape recorders ready. At the time, if I liked the music, I would go out and buy the album since I hated messing with the 8-track tape.

If you have a similar story from your town, send it along. We’d love to hear ’em.
