Re: [ARSCLIST] NAB vs. DIN recordings

I wonder if the EQ was NAB or IEC?
I just cleaned a couple of moldy CBC Toronto tapes and they are indeed
DIN track width. They sound like NAB EQ, however.
Couldn't tell you any more than that..I was a host and producer in the 80s, and
they'd just come through having NABET busted. Prior to '82, if as a free-lancer
I brought in one of my own tapes to play they had to have one of their techs
re-record it (on an off-speed Ampex down in the basement). I eventually swiped
a roll of NABET stickers and began to make sure I used the same type of tape
(which was easy to obtain, since Tape Reclaim never cleared the hallways and a
trip through the building any night would yield up tons of reusable reels).
Them was the days.
