The 1964 AFL Championship GameThe 1964 AFL Championship Game
This is an amateur recording of the 1964 AFL Championship Game. Ralph Hubbell sets the scene for the WBEN audience and play-by-play man Van Miller calls the action from The RockPile in December 1964. Digitally remasterd in the staffannouncer.com studios, the orginal tape was made by someone holding a microphone up to a speaker.. So you hear them cheering on the Bills in their Queen City Living room. The tape also starts and stops, throughout the game, but over the hour, you get a feel for the game where the Bills won their first of back-to-back championships.

War of the Worlds '71!War of the Worlds '71
This is, in essence, the same broadcast as above, only with the Jack Armstrong as the jock, and slightly tighter production.

Paul McCartney is alive and Well, Maybe...Paul McCartney is Alive and Well, Maybe...
Is another twisted production of KB Radio. It chronicles the possibility that Paul McCartney died in a car crash in 1964 and the guy "playing" Paul is really a body double. It points to song lyrics and album covers as proof that the Beatles are playing a trick on you, and Paul is dead. This masterpiece helped further a persistant rumor with great production and a 50,000 watt signal that hit 33 states and half of Canada. Narrated by Jeff Kaye, Dan Neaverth, Stan Roberts, Sandy Beach.
