Use this as a sed script:

:join
/$/{N
s/\n//
}

It read two consecutive lines and joins them; the cycle
is repeated over and over again for the entire file. So,
if the gibberish above is saved in, say, script.sed,
the command

sed -f script.sed "filename"

joins all consecutive lines from that file.

kind regards,
