Written by Bob Sorrentino

Available nine of ten TV Audio Air Checks of HAPPY DAYS (1970)
8 June 2016 | by griestvaudioSee all my reviews

Archival Television Audio (www.atvaudio.com) has nine of the ten HAPPY DAYS complete 52 minute broadcasts,(June 25-August 27, 1970...missing July 16) preserved on 1/4" reel to reel master tapes...all recorded at the time of the airing for direct line pristine sound quality.The archive, Archival Television Audio, Inc. archives over 15,000 hours of mostly "lost" and not presently available TV broadcast AUDIO circa 1946 thru 1982, at which time networks and local stations wiped 2" Quad tapes for space and financial reasons. Only a few of the 10 original HAPPY DAYS programs can be found at UCLA and at PALEY archives. To date ATA has the most BROADCAST EXAMPLES and in excellent sound condition. And, it is the SOUND that makes this nostalgic trip back to the 30's so special.
