Snoop tape of day 1. Snippets of Kevin Savage, Jim Ellery, Margaret Rogers, Jim Ellery, Steve Crozier, and Chris Prior.

A Snoop Tape is a recording that is made only when the presenter's microphone is live.  The purpose of a Snoop Tape is to "snoop" on the presenter so that he can be critiqued later. While the Snoop Tape only captured audio while the presenter's microphone is live, you do get to hear tiny segments of the show as it unfolds.
