Project Armed Forces – WOKY Radio Air Check – June 21, 1969

A “Living Letter” tape recording as we knew them during the Vietnam War was originally called A “Letter on a Record”.
A Letter on a Record USO WWII
This brainchild was originally fostered by the USO some time in World War II.
By the Vietnam era they had segued from vinyl disks to magnetic audio tapes.
AKAI X-1800SD Multi-Purpose Tape Recorder
I purchased what was commonly referred to as a tape deck (AKAI X-1800SD) for the express purpose of both recording and playing voice messages to and from my family.
We had 50′ audio tapes on 3″ reels in small pre-packaged mailers available from the base PX (Post Exchange).
I received this WOKY Radio92 air check and enclosed letter mid-tour:
SERIES NO. 260 RECORDING TAPE Box (1)
Sweet Bippy Letter
The air check was recorded over Friday, June 20 and Saturday, June 21st, 1969.
I can be found at 38:46 in recording.
