Happy Boxing Day all. Here’s six minutes of rare footage I found fascinating and hopefully you will too.

On Saturday, December 26, 1970, the day after Christmas, Detroit radio DJ Don Schuster can be seen showing off the W4 studio. Schuster, who sports a deep “radio” voice but looks to be about age 19, displays the UPI Tele-Type machine and explains how songs played are on “the computer” (an automated reel-to-reel tape system). The young pro can also be seen playing Beatles tunes, introducing commercials for Sly & the Family Stone and 8-Track Stereos and playing the “#1 L.P in the country” Abraxas by Carlos Santana. Roll it!
