Copley Plaza Hotel fire March 19 1979.


I just put a 800KB file at the URL above of the Copley Plaza Hotel fire - five alarms - this snippet has the first 9 minutes of the radio traffic (and the first telephone call reporting the fire).

Ch 1 was 33.74 - Ch 2 was 153.89 - Ch 4 was 154.265.

Many thanks to the person who made the tape available for posterity.

Odd, I can't get it to play with my Winamp v 5.2.

WinAmp for Mac (http://www.mac.org/audio-video/macamp/)

Tanks...I installed the Winamp for Mac and I downloaded the file.

It shows on the winamp playlist but I cannot get it to play. Volume on the Winamp is up as is the volume on my speakers.

I press the play button but nothing happens. Am I doing something wrong? Any ideas?

I can't get it to play either it behaves the same way, opens but can't get it to go.
Using Winamp v.5.13.

I have 5.13 and it defaulted to open in winamp, was able to listen to the whole thing without a problem. I don't believe I have any special extensions installed.
