Tape 1 Imported 04.08.2010
This reel of tape had Victor Jackovich playing on KSO 1460 AM. There is a hand written date of 1966. Each side of the tape had a different performance. Victor is playing what they called the electric accordion. He’s awesome. He used to play at Michael’s on Fluer in the 60′s.
As I start to google him, I find he was ambassador to Slovenia and Bosnia. The plot thickens…I found theobituary for his wife, Mary Jackovich. There are still plenty of tapes to go. One of which has a hand written letter and a typed letter trying to get into college in Indiana. It also has his senior picture. That one will get imported next.
Tape 2 Imported 05.02.2010
This reel of tape is labeled Blazers. I can only imagine this was the name of the band Victor and his friends had in the 60′s. Some of this is rehearsal, some are songs off the radio. There are some random goodies too.
Tape 3 Imported 05.09.2010
This reel of tape is Victor’s audition tape to get into college. I scanned in the hand written note and a typed letter, plus his senior picture. There was only one side to this one.
Tape 4 Imported 05.23.2010
This appears to just be Victor and friends recording records. There is some talking in the beginning then old records recorded with a microphone.
Tape 5 Imported 05.23.2010
This appears to just be Victor recording himself. There are a few songs on this side. Side two is a radio show called Where the Action Is. On this show they’re saluting The Songs of John Lennon and Paul McCartney. In the show it’s mentioned The Beatles had only been out for 4 years at that point. The fun part is it’s some other band doing the songs.
