I stumbled upon an old cassette tape this afternoon which is mostly filled with random songs and clips from Craig and Company, the morning show on 96.5 WTIC-FM in Hartford. Much to my surprise, one of the clips features what sounds like a remixed version of Brass Bonanza in the background. Go take a listen for yourself on our Brass Bonanza audio page (scroll to the bottom). The recording is from October 8, 1991 – the day of the home opener against Montreal.
On another historical note, here is what the associated press had to say the next day, October 9, 1991: Whalers Rally to Tie Canadiens – Mark Hunter and Rob Brown scored power-play goals in the second period to give the Whalers a 2-2 tie with Montreal last night in Hartford’s home opener. In the first period, the Canadiens took a 2-0 lead on goals by Kirk Muller and Russ Courtnall, but the Whalers scored on two of three second-period power plays.
