Rather than just paste the first 8 songs onto the BBC show, I thought I'd build a complete mix of all three sources. This allows the mix to have a similar sound throughout, making it less of a cut and paste job. The BBC source was also fairly sterile - adding the AUD sources overtop livens it up ;-)

The result is a pretty choice show I think, certainly worth a grab. Here's what was done to each of the three recordings...

Wilatw's source:

- Heavy EQ to make it sound more like the top end of the BBC show.
- Amplify and add some missing low end and vocals.

Martinick's source:

- Time adjust to match first source.
- fix about 200 pops and glitches from a bad microphone. By hand, each one.

BBC Source:
- Time adjust to match first source.

The mix was able to:
- Remove the BBC announcer

- Work around several unfixable glitches in Martinick's source, particularly in the intros to songs.

- For the most part, unless working around a glitch or an announcer, the mix is 33% of each source. - The first 8 tracks are 50% of the two AUD sources.

Even without the BBC source this would have been an excellent mix. Adding the the BBC source gives the last 2/3 of the show a bit more body, but doesn't overpower the already great mix made by the other two.

Hope you like it - it will have to do until a complete pre-FM comes out ;-)

And as always, thanks to the original tapers for their hard work, and for their direct permission to create this mix.
