Great Caesar's Ghost.!~!~!  Reminds me of 1992, or was it 1991?  Too old to remember exactly.  It was April.  First day of trout season.  Raining.  Got back home with my son and his award winning brown trout.  Now a wall hanger.  My XYL said that I had had a visitor, but he'd be back.  Sure he was.  John Rahtes, Field Engineer from the Philly office.  Showed him the station (turn tables, decks, compressor/limiter, etc).  Flipped on the rig at his request.  Yeah... 7415 lit up.  Got the "TALK".  He left. 

Later found out that I was not alone.  HOPE RADIO got the pinch, and two others (I think).  Radio Free OZ had been #4 "with a bullet" on an FCC press release.  Not sure about several others; probably all lumped into OZ.

Got a letter that they wanted $1k or it was gonna go to $10k.  I responded that the deal was $1k,... but nothing about 30 days.  Sure enuf... about a month later came a letter from the Feddy DA for the 3rd area.  I called.  We talked.  Told him about the $1k.  Told him about their specious claim of "interfering with health and safety frequencies".  Told him how we had to go QSY when VOA (Africa) came on with megawatts.  He started to whimper that it wasn't worth his time for $10k, let alone $1k.  So I shouted, "Then, FORGET IT.!~!~!"  [heh heh heh] 

Never heard from them again.  ;-))  AHhhhhh the mammaries.....

Commercial Radio... "all bits, all the time".

Max Profit playing ads, shills and PSAs. 

Camel Toe Jeans, Men's Whorehouse, Rhode Island School of BCing, Necro Anon PSA, et al. 

Commentary on the lack of creativity of current Free Radio ops.  So sad.

0250 - 0319* 6960 AM

A leisure time product of The Fox; in conjunction with Sick Puppy Productions

Caught several mentions of Illuminati.  RI??????

At signoff went to 6960 and Canuck programming.  Nice to hear the GWN.  Reminds me of "The Beaver".   ;-))

Just a quicky.

Considering shortwave in full blown 300 to 3k AM; and more so in SSB; the MP3s are just "Fine as Frog's Fur".

Ever see fur on a frog?

Pretty damned fine, ain't it?

Yeah... there are a few... some on the Archive, some elsewhere.  A good search engine should start to find 'em. 

I was getting kinda fed up with the FM wannabees.  Just song after song and use ur Shazam to sort 'em out.  Some of us Olde Heads... remember when the ops used to script funny stuff... for ads and PSAs.  Stuff like Pat Murphy's Broadcast Specialists (think other terms for BS) DJ Course.... or my RISBC (Rhode Island School of BCing (So ya wanna be on the radio...)  How about my "Gland Hoser" ad... poking some fun at Glenn Hauser.  Etc etc etc.

That's why I posted the 'Pirate Bitz'.  Free to use.  Put some Pizzazz in ur shows.  And that sorta thing.

Also, nice to have a shot at whole shows... with no QRM or QRN.  Clear as groundwave from 5 miles away.  ;-))

Thanx, buddy.  C U on the bands.
