Beatles' Atlantic City concert to be aired on radio

Press call at Atlantic City
A press release from yesterday:
Saturday marks the 50th anniversary of the Beatles playing in Atlantic City, and local radio station KOOL-98.3 FM has a treat for local fans. At 6:15 p.m. Saturday, the station will play a recording of the band's full 30-minute show here. Staff at Longport Media discovered the recording in the station's archives as they worked to commemorate the concert anniversary, said Dave Coskey, president of the media company. "It's a 50 year old tape, it certainly doesn't sound pristine, but we think the historic value of it outweighs the technical quality," Coskey said. "I sat down and listened to it from start to finish. I thought it was especially cool, I'd always heard about the Beatles in Convention Hall, this is going to be as close as you can get to seeing it."

The broadcast is at 6:15 p.m. on SATURDAY August 30th, 50 years after the original show. Although they took the stage at 8:15 p.m., this show will air at 6:15 p.m.

I wonder if it will turn out to be the "Whiskey Flats" tape after all. Hopefully it's not the Ed Rudy LP!

Damn, it's Philadelphia 1964!

Mitchell Axelrod said...

Yes, it turned out to be the Philadelphia show which was simulcast on the New Jersey station at the time. So that is where the new Kool 98.3 was mistaken.

Sounded like it came from a bootleg also, a cut during roll over Beethoven also.
