draftervoi's original notes:
Westwood One premiered their Westwood One In Concert series in April of 1981, with a show #81-1, pairing Chuck Berry and George Thorogood. Not playing together, but two separate concert recordings broadcast during the hour. While many of the In Concert shows continued the practice of pairing two artists, some of the In Concert shows featured a single artist...such as this Greg Kihn Band show from later during 1981. 

The numbering on the In Concert shows is very straight-forward, it's a two digit code indicating the year, followed by an ascending count of the number of shows.  81-1, 81-2, 81-3...etc. It looks like they did about 12 shows that first year, but by the mid-80s they were doing a show per week.

This show features the Greg Kihn Band as they were touring behind their breakthrough single, The Break Up Song (They Don't Write 'Em), which had gone Top 20 in the U.S.A.

Many thanks to draftervoi for all his efforts and providing this show through his Voodoo Wagon blog.
