=======================================================
On all discs, sector boundary errors resolved using TLH.

Finally an appeal. Does anyone have the missing bits:

1. WHYT Detroit, 22nd September
2. CHOM 97.7 Montreal, 25th September
3. The missing ending from KFOG San Francisco
4. The full broadcast of 93 XRT Chicago or KROQ Los Angeles?
