Tune into a unique tour of music — the flipside, on wrfr.

Jan 23, 2021 | Featured, Human Interest, WRFR

Sundays – 11:00 A.M. TO Noon on WRFR FM 93.3 or WRFR.org

The Flipside show is a tour through Spike’s collection of sound recordings that are kept in his inner sanctum known as ‘The Flipside’.

Spike’s thousands of sound recordings are in the form of 78 rpm records, 16-inch radio transcriptions, reel-to-reel tape, etc.

For those unfamiliar with 16-inch transcriptions, they are records that are truly 16 inches in diameter… giant monster records compared to the common 12-inch LP records most everybody is used to seeing. They were used for radio purposes only from around 1929 to about the 1950s and even later. The content was either specially recorded music not commercially released or radio programs pre-recorded for syndicated broadcasting. 

Spike’s collection and the Flipside show include jazz, big band, classic radio broadcasts, novelty, rare, unusual and/or forgotten goodies! Tune in to WRFR Sunday mornings for this unique tour.
