In this EP, IÂ will share one of the most unusual recordsÂ and probably the rarest LP I ever found digging. I pulled this out of a $3 bin a few years back, with little knowledge as to what is was.
The REM concert was officially released and band-sanctioned, promotional-only radio show known as â€œNBC The Source Broadcast.â€ Professionally recorded live by NBC Radio Young Adult Network at Seattleâ€™s Music Hall on June 27, 1984, it was subsequently pressed onto a double-LP set and distributed to a select handful of American radio stations for broadcast on the weekend of July 20-22, 1984 as part of the syndicated show â€œThe Source.â€
I play a few tracks and tell the story of the record.
