Derby Box

The Derby Box.

This is a collection of 274 tapes mixing Peel shows, Friday Rock Shows and Alan Freeman Saturday Rock Shows from 1978 to 1983. They were recorded by Chris Holmes using high standard TDK, Hitachi, Maxell, Fuji and Sony cassettes (among others) using a Sugden T28 Tuner & A28 Amplifier (with roof mounted FM aerial) recorded on a Nakamichi Cassette deck and are of outstanding audio quality: he also prepared a spreadsheet listing the tapes. Responsibility for purchasing the tapes, ripping and sharing them with the Peel Mailing List has been taken on by members Rob F, Stuart Weatherman and Rocker. The first recordings were shared on 11 November 2014.

Some of the tapes were sold on ebay previous to this purchase: however, five of these are in the hands of a lister who is prepared to rip and share them on his own account. Many thanks to Chris, Rob, Stuart & Rocker for bringing such excellent recordings to public attention.

Tapes DB044 through to DB048 do not exist due to the numbering system being thrown out by the frequent de-gaussing of tapes up until this point. The tapes were being re-numbered as they were re-used. The numbering system now recommences from DB049.
