Universe – Part 55

Universe pt 55 What About 60s pt S-2 Alternate Jimi.


June 13, 2014


This is not a survey of great alternate Hendrix cuts, itโ€™s a MASH of great alternate Hendrix cuts. A relentless attempt at the longest, continuous simulplays ever done and done only with the greatest rock guitarist of the 60s, or any other time. Beware, this is unreasonable listening. Few programs on Over The Edge actually live up to our name in my opinion, but this one does.

Extinct Technology:
As many might know, I use broadcast cart machines to mix OTE. This analog bit playing technology is now long gone from broadcasting and everywhere else. Any example of cart players/recorders are automatically old and very used. Repairs are a constant problem (everyone I’ve gone to doesn’t even know what this thing is) and so I’m asking if anyone out there, hopefully in the S.F. Bay Area, is capable of repairing/refurbishing cart machines.

But breakdowns are still a drag, and I’m even more interested in finding NEW or unused machines, if they exist. I’ve searched all over on line, but most all are well worn and the sellers, usually without carts or cables, can’t even test them. Anybody know where new or nearly new, fully operating cart recorder/players might be availble?
Thanks for any help.

    How about these guys?

    Another thought that someone suggested is to approach rural radio stations. They may have some in the basement.

    I am still searching for someone in SF who does tape machines. Will let you know. And yes, this episode is one of the more challenging ๐Ÿ™‚
