Holiday Greeting: Stephen Pratti

HitRadio played a small library of Christmas standards during the holiday season, one song per hour. This would start the day after Thanksgiving and run until the end of the day on Christmas Eve.

Every staff member would record a holiday greeting, and these greetings would be played like a sweeper before a Christmas song.

These greetings from Christmas 1997 were just taken off of the AudioPak cart in the Fall of 2012. Special thanks to Ian Lainof who found and liberated this cart several years after HitRadio went off the air. He also found the control room sign with the cart, and that is posted in the Memorabilia section.

These were a challenge, as while we still have working cart machines, the cart's pressure pads had deteriorated to nothing and replacements are hard to find. This forced us to make new pads out of air conditioner weather sealing material. The audio quality is not spectacular, but isn't bad for a cart that's been in the basement for almost 15 years and probably had bad tape in it back in 1997.
