Dino, thanks for this. Great set, great sound! The Pretenders sometimes get overlooked in the rock 'n roll scheme of things. There aren't many good sounding earlier-era shows of theirs out there. This is one of the best. Appreciate it.

Listen - I have been looking for this (the version of 'Money' in particular) since the day I heard the radio broadcast in 1983.... Needless to say, I'm very happy to see this here - thank you so much.
