PREFACE by Ronny Raphter
Since the "Human Dinosaurs" book series (HumanDinosaurs.com) makes several references to "Cabel T-B" recordings, we have decided to post the "Stories of Cabel T-B" so that the readers can get a better idea of what is mentioned in the books (assuming you did not grow up in southern Louisiana in the '80s and have never heard any of these recordings).  As one of the top executives of "Bonerman Records", as well as a former president of Cabel T-B, I have the honor and privilege of being able to listen to the entire collection of 50 Cabel T-B recordings.  Since the majority of these recordings are not available to the public, being too controversial, I will present the stories here for all Cabel T-B fans to know.  I will also include my own personal "Overall" review of each recording which, through my unique perspective of being a part of Cabel T-B productions from 1982-1988 and 2004-2008, should help you know what you are missing.  The recordings are divided in groups of ten, each being referred to as a "Deca".  Each Deca also represents the evolutionary progress of Cabel T-B, as well as containing its own special time period in Cabel T-B history.  Also, with recordings that are mentioned in the "Human Dinosaurs" book series I will try to put a note (*) indicating it was mentioned and may also add additional information for further clarity (Cabel T-B recordings and broadcasts are mentioned all throughout the book series, being that some of the characters in the story are Cabel T-B fans and at least three Cabel T-B characters actually appear at points in the story).  If you have any questions, including requests for copies of any of these recordings, you can email me at ronny@bonermanrecords.com

THE STORY OF
CABEL T-B 1982-1987
Recordings of "Deca 1" (1-10)

THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING #1
"Special First"
    This is the oldest know Cabel T-B recording in existence!!!  Made in Houma, Louisiana in the summer of 1982 (approximately) on 102 Krumbhaar Drive.  It is considered a "production" because it was not a recording of an actual radio broadcast.  Although we can't conclusively prove that the recording took place in 1982 (it could have been as early as the summer of 1981), we believe that it did (or at the very least was finished in 1982).  Although it is the oldest recording that we have in our possession, it was not the first.  The words "Cabel T-B" were uttered into a tape recorder for the first time somewhere in the late 70's by the young child named Dino Duet.  However, all other older recordings were lost and only this one survived all these years, so we called it "Special First" (also this is the first known Cabel T-B recording done with someone other than just Dino by himself).  This is the first and last recording with "Stacey Roth" (one part of the recording actually takes place in her house, making this the first time Cabel T-B records outside of the studio and "on location", which becomes a big deal later on in "Deca 2").  The recording was made on the second side of a 60 minute tape and is only 30 minutes long.  The recording starts with Dino saying "this is Cabel T-B" and then the recording continues with the pulling of a cat's tail among many other childish things (after all they were children approximately 8-10 years old).  There is also a brief appearance of "Jack Duet", later to be known as "Crappy Jack".

Overall, the recording itself is essentially pointless and plotless.  However, it would prove to be "the seed" that would germinate in Lafayette, Louisiana, becoming the inspiration for the first official radio broadcast.
 
 

THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING #2
"9 to 5"
    This was the first official radio broadcast for Cabel T-B.  It was recorded in late December of 1983 on Monday Square drive (not sure about the house number and can't find it in Google maps for some reason) in Lafayette, Louisiana.  This would be the first broadcast made outside of Houma, Louisiana and the first one featuring "Shep German" and "Kelly Galloway".  The recording is called "9 to 5" because that is what was written on the tape that was used to record this broadcast.  It was also recorded on a second side of a 60 minute tape, like its predecessor, and is also 30 minutes long.  This would be the first of 3 tapes used during the many broadcasts in Lafayette, but the other two tapes would eventually be recorded over with newer broadcasts, making "9 to 5" the only surviving complete recording made there.  The broadcast itself was mostly of ridiculous commercials, songs played from other radio stations, sports reports with Shep, and news with Kelly.  Another important first is the introduction of Cabel T-B's first "top ten", which would be done for many years to come.  Unfortunately, the music used is from another radio station and a few silly sound clips.  *Part of this recording is mentioned in the book "Human Dinosaurs PART ONE: The Tales of Mitch".

Overall, it went well as this was one of very few recordings that Dino and Kelly worked good together on.  As of this recording, Cabel T-B is now officially born as a radio station!
 
 

THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING #3
"Brinwood"
    This was the second official radio broadcast for Cabel T-B.  It was recorded in the fall of 1984 on 215 Brinwood drive in Houma, Louisiana.  This recording was titled "Brinwood" after the street name of the new location.  This recording has the first appearance of "Fred on the phone", later to be known as "Fabulous Fred" and "Pot Head Fred".  It would also be the first mention of Dino's girlfriend "Jessica", as well as the first and last recording with "Sexy Sally".  This is also the first use of nick names like "Dinomite Dino" and "Krazy Kelly".  Another important first is the use of drugs during the broadcast, for this would continue for 24 years!  The broadcast begins after a strange encounter with He-man figures.  Kelly is doing cocaine, Fred is getting paid, and he runs out the door when he realizes he is on the air (the opposite of what he would do in later recordings).  At this time Fred is just a small time drug dealer in a partnership with his friend Joey (*not mentioned in the recordings but is mentioned in the book series "Human Dinosaurs PART ONE: The Tales of Mitch").  More of the same type of music is heard with an addition of some trumpet playing.  Kelly does some more top tens, Shep does more sports reports, Dino does some more DJ stuff, and Sexy Sally does some "comedy".

Overall, this broadcast was chaotic, boring,  and nonlinear.  The important introduction of Fred and drug usage seems to be the only things that kept this recording from being erased from history.  It was recorded over one of the Lafayette recordings on a 60 minute tape, but the broadcast is incomplete stopping at 47 minutes in the middle of a top ten (presumably caused by a loss of interest in the broadcast itself).  Also, we begin to see the friction developing between Dino and Kelly which effects the performance, as well as the material, in the broadcast.  Cabel T-B would then remain silent for about 6 months, only to come back with a roar!!!
 
 

THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING #4
"Out of it"
    This was the third official radio broadcast for Cabel T-B.  It was recorded in late winter/early spring of 1985 on 215 Brinwood drive in Houma, LA.  This recording was called "Out of it" because it would be the first broadcast made while Dino was totally drunk.  This broadcast, like the last one, was recorded on a 60 minute tape that was originally used in Lafayette and almost made it full but falls short ending at 55 minutes (Dino gets sick towards the end of the broadcast which just shuts everything down).  This recording includes the first appearance of "Wolfman Johnny".  This is also the first "cigarette light intro" ever used and this tradition would continue all the way to 2008!  It is also the first time you hear Shep's speech impediment, first use of a bulldozer to bring in drugs (also used in "Double Deca"), and first commercial for Fred's drugs (uppers, downers, weeds, etc.).  This would also be the first and last appearance of Dino's girlfriend "Jessica" (with the exception of a cameo appearance in "Double Deca").  With Kelly being out of town, the recording begins and ends with Dino, making it the first recording with him totally in charge of every aspect of the broadcast, making it also Cabel T-B's first official "Private Recording Session" (meaning no outside influence, just Dino).  The recording begins with some tests followed by a change to a broadcast from a private studio where a party ensues.  Some music from MTV is heard followed by a commercial featuring the introduction of Wolfman Johnny.  Dino is later joined by Shep, Wolfman, Fred, and Jessica, as he attempts to DJ and do a top ten.  As Dino gets drunker and drunker, the broadcast eventually ends with a "sign off" to throw up in the bathroom (not recorded). *Some of this recording is mentioned in the book "Human Dinosaurs PART ONE: The Tales of Mitch".

Overall, this broadcast is hilarious from beginning to end, progressively getting more outrageous as the night goes on.  Surely one of Cabel T-B's most infamous broadcasts, this one went down in history as one of Dino's personal favorites.  Setting the stage for many broadcasts to come, "Out of it" makes its mark in history by breaking the silence, that was threatening to end Cabel T-B, and simultaneously evolving it closer to its more modern form.
 
 

THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING #5
"Hit List"
    This was the fourth official radio broadcast for Cabel T-B.  It was recorded on the last day of school in 1985 (I think that was 5-31-85) and would be the last broadcast from 215 Brinwood Drive in Houma, LA until 1990 ("Bad to the Boner!").  This recording is titled "Hit List" because that was what was written on the tape that was used to record it.  The tape used was only 40 minutes long and only 33 minutes of it was actually used for the broadcast.  This recording has many firsts: the first time Fred is referred to as "Fabulous Fred on the phone" (although his official name change was shortened to "Fabulous Fred" later on in "Out of it 2"), first time Fred uses the term "mon" (briefly as he invites the fans to come to the radio station for "free drugs" without actually giving the address of the radio station!), the first character based songs like "The Wolfman Johnny dance" and the "Cabel T-B National Anthem" (broadcasted again on "Double Deca"), the first official Cabel T-B photo session (pictures taken the same night as the broadcast and are included in the CD version), the first "The Joker's a doper" show, and the first appearance of "Mad Madonna".  After hearing about the success of the "Out of it" broadcast, Kelly is once again interested in being part of a Cabel T-B broadcast.  Unfortunately, the friction between Dino and Kelly is still there and, in fact, gets much worse in this broadcast.  The broadcast starts upbeat with the celebration of the last day of school being a major reason.  After the photo session (which includes pictures of all the characters that appear in the broadcast), a top ten begins along with some more, now nostalgic, commercials (like "Dr. Popper") and some interesting character songs.  Then the obvious differences in musical tastes and no clear direction for the broadcast stifles any attempt to make a good recording.  Thus, much of the original broadcast was erased on the second side of the tape.  The broadcast has but one redeeming contribution to Cabel T-B history, and that is "The Joker's a doper" (many renditions of the show appear throughout Cabel T-B history).  The broadcast ends with Fred making a prediction that would later come to pass, the continuation of the "Joker" show in future years starting with "The Joker takes birth control" (which appears in the "Out of it 2" broadcast).  *Some of this recording is mentioned in the book "Human Dinosaurs PART ONE: The Tales of Mitch".  In fact, Chapter 5 "The Day After the Last Day of School" occurs the day after this broadcast was made and in the story Fred appears in the same clothes he wore the night before.

Overall, this broadcast sucks in my opinion.  Dino and Kelly do not get along very much at all; making this broadcast a form of retrogression for Cabel T-B.  Unlike "Out of it", which took Cabel T-B a major evolutionary step forward, this broadcast takes a step back.  Having Fred save the day with his "Joker" show is the only redemption for the whole recording.  This will be Cabel T-B's last broadcast for over a year, but fortunately the best is still yet to come.
 
 

THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING #6
"Out of it 2"
    This was the fifth official radio broadcast for Cabel T-B.  It was recorded in August of 1986 at the new recording studio on 7 Gina street in Houma, LA (also known as "the trailer"; one of only two trailer studios used by Cabel T-B). It was called "Out of it 2" because the broadcast was intended to be a sequel to its drunken predecessor made in 1985.  Unfortunately, this broadcast only starts off that way and ends up being more like a sequel to "Hit List" (since there was not nearly as much alcohol as the first one and by the end of the broadcast they are very much sober).  It was recorded on a 90 minute tape, but falls short of filling it ending at 67 minutes.  It still becomes the longest Cabel T-B recording up to this point, and will maintain that status for almost 3 years.  That is not the only thing that makes this broadcast special, there are also many firsts: first "nonconsecutive" sequel recording (although this is only a two part series, some series recordings would go as high as five!), first major character change (Fred now has an accent), first and last guest appearance of Snapper (mentioned in the original "Out of it"), first recording using "line 1" also known as "the live kicker" (was used for most of the recordings of Deca 1,2, and 3), first use of a "chrome" cassette tape (very rare because of the extra cost to purchase them), first time Fred is called "Fabulous Fred" and Wolfman is called "Weird Wonderful Wolfman Johnny", first and last "Lee products", and first "perverted" style recording.  The broadcast begins with Dino getting drunk in the bathroom, followed by the beginning of a top ten which is interrupted by Snapper and Kelly.  Unlike the first "Out of it", this broadcast is not a total drunken party.  This broadcast goes in a different direction, as Snapper starts wrestling with Dino and makes the recording a bit boring.  However, Snapper eventually leaves and the broadcast goes in a perverted direction with Fred's new "The Joker takes birth control" show and Dino's zany "Lee products".

Overall, the recording is historically significant.  Not only is this the first broadcast in over a year, but it is also a major evolutionary step for Cabel T-B (much like the original).  Fred has spent his time away from Cabel T-B (during the one year break) in Columbia, South America where he picks up his new accent and is no longer just a small time drug dealer.  Also, Dino has hit puberty, sounding and acting accordingly.  This will also be one of the last recordings with Kelly playing a major part, as her life would seem to be destine to take her away from Cabel T-B.  This is a major resurrection for Cabel T-B as a radio station, setting the stage for things to come which will eventually lead to the greatest and longest broadcasting season in Cabel T-B history in 1987.
 
 

THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING #7
"Piss-off"
    This was the sixth official radio broadcast for Cabel T-B.  It was recorded in fall/early winter of 1986 on 7 Gina street in Houma, Louisiana.  It was titled "Piss-off" because that was the title of the broadcast for which it was recorded over.  The original recording (in the summer of 1986, shortly before "Out of it 2") was of a broadcast that was incomplete (40 minutes) featuring Kelly and Dino, in which they did nothing but "piss each other off" throughout the entire broadcast.  However, this broadcast (which did not involve Kelly at all) was recorded on a 60 minute tape which, for the first time in Cabel T-B history, was filled completely!!!  There are other important firsts: first anniversary/review style recording, first appearance of "MAC", first and last "scrapbook", first appearance of "Arnold" (later known as "Arnold Swartscoffee"), first action packed fight skit (many more would follow), and first official mention of "Cabel S-C" ("Cabel S-C" was a rival radio station first mentioned in unreleased "Cabel T-B" recordings dating back to 1984; these "lost" recordings appear as "bonus tracks" in the CD version of Cabel T-B's "9 to 5"). *"Cabel S-C" is also mentioned in the "Human Dinosaurs" book series.   The broadcast begins with the announcement of Cabel T-B's "three year review", even though it is technically a "four year review" (1982-1986).  What is not mentioned in any great detail is the fact that the broadcast is being deliberately recorded over the original "Piss-off" broadcast which sucked so badly it need to be erased from Cabel T-B history!  The original broadcast proved that Dino and Kelly had grown too far apart to possibly work together with any degree of success in this time period, bringing the radio station to almost a complete standstill.  Fortunately, the "Out of it 2" broadcast set up a perfect opportunity to bring Cabel T-B back from the brink of destruction and go forward into a broadcast season that would take off into history as the most productive ever (1986-1987).  The broadcast then continues with "MAC" and Dino broadcasting some of the funnier moments in Cabel T-B up to this point, later joined by Fred, Wolfman, Shep, and Arnold.  The broadcast ends with Shep pissing off Arnold who then gets in an armed conflict with Fred which ends in the near destruction of the entire radio station.  After "crashing out" and waking up to a ringing phone and alarm clock, Dino and Fred sign off to prepare for the next recording session of the broadcast.  *Some of this recording is mentioned in the books of the "Human Dinosaurs" series.

Overall, this recording is a bit boring in the beginning.  However, the broadcast takes a walk on the wild side in the second half, with Fred bringing in a serious amount of weed and other drugs right before an interview with Arnold ending in a shoot out and a pass out.  Having successfully carried the torch from "Out of it 2", this recording continues the momentum that would lead to the full blown broadcasting frenzy that would make Cabel T-B "Totally-Banned" and infamous as a radio station.
 
 

THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING #8
"Perverted Piss-off 2"
    This was the seventh official radio broadcast for Cabel T-B.  It was recorded in December of 1986 on 7 Gina street in Houma, Louisiana.  It is called "Perverted Piss-off 2" for two reasons: it is the continuation of the original "Piss-off" broadcast, it is also the most "perverted" recording made up to this point in Cabel T-B history.  It was recorded on a 60 minute tape that was completely filled.  Unfortunately, the original tape was lost and only a poor quality copy of a copy remains (the original copy was loaned to "Dirty Devin", who then lost it forcing Cabel T-B to get another copy from "Radical Ray" who had made a "dual cassette" copy of his copy of the original; unfortunatley that technology produced a very poor quality copy).  Fortunately, that would be the first and last time this would happen to a Cabel T-B recording from this point on.  There are also a few other important firsts for this recording: first "Perversion Hour", first appearance of "Ray Perry" (later known as "Radical Ray" and "The Ferry"), first recording with Dino "totally stoned", first "Editorials" (many more would follow), first mention of "P.T." (also known as "Prick Tease"), first "Blast from the past" (later to be done exclusively by "Howard Badsmell"), and first "consecutive" sequel recording (although this consecutive series is only two parts, there is one consecutive series that would go as high as 4).  The broadcast continues, as it ended in "Piss off", with Dino waiting for the first live broadcast from outside the radio station to begin.  However, this does not happen.  Instead, Dino starts off the first "Perversion Hour", in which calls are taken from perverted fans everywhere leading up to the introduction of "Ray Perry" live at the radio station.  The broadcast continues with both Dino and Ray getting stoned and drunk, doing editorials that are simply outrageous!  The broadcast then winds down with the first "Blast from the past" ever recorded, featuring old recorded clips mostly from 1983.  At the end of the broadcast a "New Year's Bash" is announced, planed to be on location in "Grand Isle" with Kelly.  This also would not happen.  *Some of this recording is mentioned in the book "Human Dinosaurs PART ONE: The Tales of Mitch".

Overall, this recording is slow going, having its moments of hilarious dialogue here and there but not everywhere.  It is a landmark recording nonetheless, planting seeds throughout that would eventually germinate and grow into the blossoming hilarious "pervert comedy" that we as fans all know and love.  The introduction of Ray is also of profound importance, as he would become Dino's "right hand man" for many future recordings and eventually his "nemesis" in later years.  This broadcast is also a prelude to Cabel T-B's first and only "New Year's broadcast" which ushers in the greatest single year in Cabel T-B history: 1987!!!
 
 

THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING #9
"New Year's Bash"
    This was the eighth official radio broadcast for Cabel T-B.  It was recorded on 12-31-86 and 1-1-87 in the recording studio on 7 Gina street in Houma, LA.  It is called "New Year's Bash" for obvious reasons.  It was recorded on a 60 minute tape that was filled up to 50 minutes, again for obvious reasons.  Unfortunately, the broadcast ended abruptly with Fred passing out and dropping the "line 1" tape recorder.  This becoming one of the most classic "sign offs" in Cabel T-B history, it more than makes up for him ending the broadcast early.  These firsts and exclusives should be mention: first recording dates fully established (there is no doubt what days the recording was made), first recording made in two different years (others would follow, but few and far between), first Shep with bad accent problems, first New Years' countdown recorded (there would be only one more), first ridiculous amount of Fred commercials (not the last but never as many, being that Fred's Delivery Store was the sole sponsor of Cabel T-B at this point), first mention of Fred's "1-800" number, first character songs since "Hit list" (only a few more would appear in future recordings, but very rare), first mention of the "Cabel T-B Music Album" (still in production at the time), first saying "I have no fucking idea" (later to become a trademark of Cabel T-B in 1987), first mention of "Cerch Jobe" (later to appear in person in the next recording), and first official sign off saying "have a good one, save one for me, and always have one in your pocket" (originated by Fred, and used for many years).   The broadcast begins with Shep and his ridiculously inappropriate accent, followed by Wolfman Johnny announcing the "New Year's Bash" broadcast.  Dino and Fred arrive shortly after to begin the New Year's party right with lots of drugs and booze.  A character song contest begins with a lot of karaoke type performances and silly ad-lib attempts.  Short of Fred's song "Wild Wild Life", the entire attempt is mostly embarrassing and ludicrous.  With Fred's song being the only one that makes sense, he is awarded with taking charge of the broadcast for the rest of the recording.  Using clips from the still incomplete Cabel T-B "Music Album", Fred eventually makes his famous "sign off" that is still used for many years to come. *Some of this recording is mentioned in the book "Human Dinosaurs PART ONE: The Tales of Mitch".

Overall, this recording did very well considering the circumstances.  With the original "Grand Isle" broadcast being canceled at the last minute, Dino and the cast and crew of Cabel T-B give it their all to make it enjoyable right there at the radio station in the trailer.  Also, Fred really shines as a now predominate member (and sole sponsor) of Cabel T-B, producing many, many commercials, including one broadcasted in the middle of someone else's radio broadcast.  This recording becomes the predecessor to one of Cabel T-B's most historic broadcasts ever made, the infamous and popular "Electrical Difficulties".
 
 

THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING #10
"Electrical Difficulties"
    This was the ninth official radio broadcast for Cabel T-B.  It was recorded on 2-15-87 in the recording studio on 7 Gina street in Houma, Louisiana.  It is called "Electrical Difficulties" because of the many problems that developed with the equipment during the broadcast.  It was recorded on a 60 minute tape that was filled completely.  From beginning to end, this broadcast is a roller coaster ride of zany antics.  A monument of Cabel T-B evolutionary progress, many firsts would become part of Cabel T-B for all time.  Although not all of these firsts were THAT important, here is the list: first "Tasty Tampons" commercial (later to become a classic), first "electrical difficulties" style recording (to be used for many years to come), first appearance of "Cerch Jobe" (one of the most loved/hated characters in Cabel T-B history and would be featured in many recordings from 1987-2008), first "Warm-up drill" (many, many more would follow, with the last being in 2005), first mention of "Devin" (later to join Cabel T-B as "Dirty Devin"), first appearance of "Ignorant Hugo", first censored section of lost history (*mentioned in "Human Dinosaurs: PART ONE The Tales of Mitch" in Chapter 15 "The Showdown with Bulldog" and still controversial to this day), first "Johnny Adventures" (many more follow in future recordings and lead to Cabel T-B's first full length original song "Johnny Adventure" in "Still Room for More" in 1989 and another version was recorded in "Going Down the Toilet" in 1992 under the same song title), first saying of "Ah Fuck!" (becoming a trademark of Dino later on), first mention of "Cheeko's Bar" (later to become legendary, having an entire Cabel T-B album dedicated to it, and even a song named after it appearing in the albums "Cheeko's Bar 1987-1997" and "Double Deca volume 1"), first appearance of "Cheeko" (eventually becoming a permanent resident of the radio station), first recording of the "Fatrolls song" (many more versions would follow in later recordings), and first time Dino say's "Cerch Jobe?" when he sees Jobe unexpectedly (this may sound insignificant, but throughout the years and many more recordings Dino would use this as his personal greeting for Jobe and does it EXACTLY the same way every time!).  The broadcast begins, much like the last one ends, with Fred in charge, telling you about "the line up".  Then Dino enters you into "Perversion Hour" with calls from Ray, a commercial for tampons, and Dino's famous disclaimer "if you are under 17 you're not suppose to be listening to Perversion Hour, you're not old enough" (ironic, since Dino is only 14 years old at the time; the saying is also used in "Double Deca").  During perversion hour, the recording equipment begins to experience problems which speeds up the sound of the broadcast.  Later on, Fred, Shep, Wolfman, and Cerch Jobe join in the fun and there is no end in sight.  Cerch Jobe makes his debut appearance in Cabel T-B with his first "Warm-up drill" ("Exercise Until You Die") and Cabel T-B will never be the same!  Unfortunately, as the first half of the recording ends, Fred begins to sing to everyone about his adventures in Columbia, South America only to be erased from the recording for unknown reasons.  It is assumed that Fred later was embarrassed or wanted to protect his connections and it is also said that Dino wanted to protect Fred from incriminating himself permanently on a recording of this broadcast (or perhaps a combination of all these things), but the truth may never be known since no recording of this part of the broadcast has survived to be heard today (*a character in the book "Human Dinosaurs: PART ONE The Tales of Mitch" makes direct reference to this and is upset for obvious reasons in Chapter 15 "The Showdown with Bulldog).  As the second half begins,  Dino is forced to do a "top ten" in electrical difficulties which brings the whole concept into a new level of comedy as all the songs are playing at supernatural speeds (AH FUCK!).  The broadcast ends with the historic introduction of "Cheeko", which Fred says is his friend from Mississippi.  Being totally drunk, as usual, Cheeko wrecks the studio (and repeats history by doing it again 16 years later in the "Double Deca" broadcast).  *Also, a copy of "Electrical Difficulties" on cassette tape is exchanged between two characters of the book "Human Dinosaurs: PART ONE The Tales of Mitch" and there is even artwork in the book showing this exchange  from Chapter 13 "Bitch Bites Bitch".

Overall, this recording was WAY ahead of its time.  The overall production, performance, and material quality of this recording would not be matched for years to come.  Having the mixture of old styles and newer styles, with the naturally complementing performances of the new characters with original characters, it is a surprising treat to the ears!  This would become one of Dino's all time favorites as well as an evolutionary turning point that no single recording can come close to equaling for many years to come.  This recording is a fitting end to the first ten recordings, dubbed "Deca 1", and the ultimate kick start to the historic year 1987 (which would have the record breaking production of 9 1/2 Cabel T-B recordings; counting "New Year's Bash" as only half a recording for 1987 and half for 1986).  The recording of this broadcast would become the most heard and widely distributed of any Cabel T-B recording in the '80s.  It would also be the tie that would bind the soon to be formed "Cabel T-B brothers" (Live Lee, Dynomite Dino, Dirty Devin, and Radical Ray) who were destine to bring the radio station out of the studio and "on location".   The first broadcast with the "Cabel T-B brothers" would be only five days later at "Evergreen Jr. High" on 2-20-87  becoming part of the longest "consecutive" series in Cabel T-B history ("On Location 1-4").  *The events of the day before, on 2-19-87, are recorded in an entire chapter of the book "Human Dinosaurs: PART ONE The Tales of Mitch" which makes direct reference to the plans of this first Cabel T-B on location broadcast in Chapter 14 "Cheeko's Bar".  Also, All of these things occurred because of the "Electrical Difficulties" recording, making it one of the single most important recordings in Cabel T-B history!!!
