When Chris Waterbury & Jerry celebrated 10 years broadcasts of their radio show The Musical Transportation Spree on July 28, 2001, video cameraman Casey Holt followed them into KFAI’s Minneapolis studios, thanks to him we have this clip. See and hear Chris & Jerry proudly look back on their history of presenting diverse home-recorded sound artists. Watch:
Some tape voices from out of their past overheard: Earl Root from Root of All Evil; Minoy; Brian (ZXQ) Anderson; Hermanos Guzanos; Plastic Eye Miracle; Joe (Rudy Schwartz Project) Newman; Revlac; Bat Lenny & more.
Special gratitude to Greg Carr for digital conversion; also Blanche Fubar.

These half-wits matched wits on the air February 27, 1987 (KFAI, Minneapolis-St.Paul) and met again at a house party a year later February 13, 1988 as the tape recorder rolled capturing the event (photos) before a gathering of their friends (pardon some of the overripe sound levels).
