For many years, AM Philadelphia on WPVI-TV was a Philadelphia favorite. We have in our video archive an interview that host Wally Kennedy did with former mayor turned broadcaster Frank Rizzo. The year is 1987. This recording was originally mastered on VHS tape. It was then dubbed to Beta SP, a professional video tape used mainly by television stations. Our copy comes off of the Beta SP tape.

However, it had extremely low volume, almost non-existent. We were able to increase the volume to a normal level but that process unfortunately increased background noise of the tape. You may hear a low frequency hum. We are very much aware that it is there. While we were able to reduce the hum, it is still there on the recording. If any out there has a better copy of this interview, we would be delighted to receive it.
