Crap from the Past
"Carts" were used to pre-record and playback station and program identifications. The cartridge format was invented in 1952, and marketed in 1959. It differs from 8-track tapes in construction and playback quality. The cart labelled "Crap from the Past '70s ID" is from the program of that name hosted by Ron Gerber '90, '92MS. His radio programs are archived at http://crapfromthepast.com/archives/index.htm. The second cart is labelled "Informal ID-50th Anniversary" and may date to 1998, the 50th anniversary of the launch of WRUR.
