Session Details: 

This is a radio broadcast with announcements by Bob Garrity and Symphony Sid. The track times between Losin and Sutherland & Burton vary, and it seems to be because Sutherland leaves out some of the time during which an announcement is made, but not over any music. Just in the interest of including everything, we will use the more complete info from Losin. -JS
