Chicken Legs and The Nighthawks, Live at Warner Theater Nov 21 1980

Chicken Legs and The Nighthawks, Live at Warner Theater Nov 21 1980
All The Credit Goes To *Camarillo Brillo**


Here is my open reel tape of Chicken Legs and the Nighthawks, live at the Warner Theater. My tape is labeled Nov 21 1980 and states that the show was taped off of WWDC DC-101. The date could be inaccurate as I have Googled this show and found a similar show without as many Nighthawks tunes as I have here, and it is dated Nov 18 1980 and states that the show was taped off of WAVA. I believe there was a 3 or 4 night stand at the Warner Theater, so it's possible I'm correct in the shows date and radio station I taped it from. Also this sounds like the last night, because Paul Barerre mentions how much fun they have had here with the Nighthawks and how much they love DC. It's also possible it could have been re-aired. Hell it's been 27 years since I recorded this show off the radio so who knows for sure. The poster above shows the date of the 17th of November.
Whatever....This sounds great! It starts off a bit shaky for a minute or so then everything settles down and the sound is very good for the next 94 minutes. I ran out of tape during "Down On The Farm"...bummer. But hey, you get 95 minutes of The Nighthawks and
Chicken Legs from 1980!
