This days files is from two sources. One source is a 7" reel recorded aircheck. The other is a slightly edited version, shortening the half-hour broadcast by seven or eight minutes.  According to reliable internet sources, the missing segments include an episode of The Hobby Hut.  The reason for this editing is unknown; it may have been to allow time for ads on a commercial rebroadcast. Dates were also taken from reliable internet sources; special thanks to Archive member Tmack45465 for digging up those sources.
