KTRU digitization is still moving right along.
Our in-house digitization has come to an end. All that is left are a few leftover sticky shed reels and some DAT tapes. These odds and ends, mostly KTRU Outdoor Show recordings, will be sent to The Media Preserve this week.
As for listening, all of the in-house reels have been reviewed and metadata has been created. We’re now moving on to the nearly 100 audio files from the last batch of sticky shed reels that were digitized by The Media Preserve. Most of these are reels from the mid 1980s. Early highlights have included on-location interviews with Culture, Daddy U-Roy, and David Hinds of Steel Pulse from Sunsplash ’87 at Montego Bay, Jamaica.
If you know of anyone that might be holding onto their KTRU reels, it would be a great time to donate them.
