Seattle 1973 [JEMS Archive, 1CD]

Seattle West Studios aka Sea West Studios, Seattle, WA. August 13, 1973. Broadcast on August 19, 1973. Very good KOL FM broadcast.

Thanks to Stan; JEMS: BK; and KRW_CO for sharing the show at Dime.

Late last month (January 2020), JEMS lost a second founding member, the great Stan Gutoski. Stan recorded hundreds of shows in and around the Seattle area starting in 1972 and kept taping over five decades. He was famous for recording shows on a Tandberg full-track mono reel to reel, and his masters of Led Zeppelin, Bruce Springsteen, The Who, David Bowie, CSNY and Joni Mitchell are some of the best ’70s recordings of those artists.

What is less widely known about Stan is that he was equally committed to recording radio broadcasts on his home reel to reel which was a Revox B77. If any local Seattle station was broadcasting a live concert or carrying a syndicated concert series, Stan fired up the recorder, sometimes going to sleep with an alarm to wake him up to flip the tape (his job in the postal service required him to report to work very early). He also set up a timer system to record broadcasts when he couldn’t be there to start the deck.

Stan made over 200 radio recordings, some on 10-inch reels that are packed with music and interviews. Those reels were sitting idle in the JEMS Archive for years until our friends at KRW_CO volunteered to transfer them. We were only too happy to let a team whose work we admire take possession of the radio reels and bring Stan’s tireless late-night efforts into the digital age.

  19. This performance is amazing. I will be spending a few hours repairing the dropouts, but it will absolutely be worth it to listen distraction-free. A belated thanks to Mr. Gutoski and his colleagues for making this available.

  21. Hey BigO - things have gotten really ugly in the Comments section. Maybe it’s time to disable the comments completely. As much as I’ve enjoyed people who said interesting things, it’s time to let the trolls go somewhere else.

    thanks for all the music!
