As promised here is a sample of the great new crop of audio sent in to us from a volunteer. Mark appears to have a disagreement with economist Ben Stein – and they choose to handle their differences during the interview. Not sure about the timeframe but I will try to infer it from commercials and other audio on the cassettes.
Incidentally, this audio is brought to you by the very generous efforts of a listener who sent in their cassettes to make their audio part of The Mark Scott Project. Without this and other listener’s efforts this site would not be possible.
If you have tapes you would like to contribute (or have them digitized and returned to you) let me know by contacting me.
And without further delay, here is a short clip of Mark Scott:
First off I want to thank EVERYONE who has responded to the call for more Mark Scott tapes. You all are great. And we have already have some of the first new cassettes trickling in to volunteers to begin the conversion process. So, more to follow. If you haven’t contacted me about how to donate your shows or haven’t arranged to get them to a volunteer – please contact me and let’s get that set up soon.
What follows is the final tape – Tape 13- contribution from the fantastic work done for us by Alice. Alice, we have been enjoying your tapes for the past year and are very thankful for all of the work you did. It is great.
Here are the liner notes from Alice

1. Bill of Rights Day. Does the Bill of Rights matter? Topics: raging against self-defense; psychiatrists examining anti-gun mentality; why would successful people regard themselves as victims?
I know that I have had numerous contacts over the years with many of you who have said “hey, I have a few Mark Scott cassette tapes.”
As one person noted to me – ‘Mark always encouraged us to tape the broadcast because it had vitally important information and we would need to be able to listen (and re-listen) to the show on our own time.‘
Those broadcasts that Mark asked you to record exist. They are each a time capsule and have bits and pieces of Mark’s program scattered over many homes and many basements.
Now Is the Time
We aren’t going to live forever and I want to make one solid, huge push to locate and gather all remaining Mark Scott recordings and get them on this site to be enjoyed before there is no point in doing so.
Alice has performed a wonderful job of ensuring her cassettes are not only preserved – but enjoyed by all of us.
What To Do Next
We have Mark Scott Project volunteers to whom you can send your cassettes and they will digitize them to MP3s and load them to our Mark Scott site just like Alice did. We have the people, we have the means…
we just need to get those tapes added to the project once and for all.
I know I have just gone through my email archives and reached out to any of you that have contacted me over the last 2 years about having tapes and I have asked for how best to move this forward with your tapes.
If you are new to he site and you have cassettes – I need to hear from you.
Let’s make one push to gather ALL remaining cassettes of Mark’s broadcast and get them here for all to enjoy.
Getting fit for the New Year! Mark was a voracious reader with show prep.
Here is Tape 11 from Alice’s great work from a while back. As always – THANK YOU, ALICE!

1. American Community Survey. Intrusive census and loss of privacy.
2.The Freedom Party of Canada. Letter received by The Freedom Party of Canada, advising that authorities considered them an extremist group, part of the “The Northern Alliance,” and request for members to appear at the London Police Headquarters to identify their position. What are “extremist” groups? The “intellectual package deal.” Barry Goldwater quote. Upcoming interview with Robert Metz.
3. Items in the News. FDA approved Ru486 Abortion Pill. Some discussion.
Happy 2016! While continuing to mine then internet recently for more obscure Mark Scott media I ran across this video clip. Mark appears at the 3 minute 17 second point – unfortunately you will have to set it there yourself as I can not bookmark it.
Not sure who the interviewer is – but Mark is obviously doing a good deed by appearing….this clip is a demo for a couple of documentaries that this woman was doing. As such, the Mark segment is short.
The Mark Scott Project needs YOUR tapes! All of those airchecks you made back in the day can be properly digitized and made available to fellow fans and be preserved for the future through the Mark Scott Project.
