I'm hearing some spacey new age music, a lot like the stuff that WEZL was putting out last night.

Pirate Radio History / What about that mail drop in Hilo, Hawaii?
« on: October 17, 2021, 2153 UTC »
I remember back in the 80's there was as PO Box in Hilo, Hawaii where you could write for QSL's.  It was almost universal with the shortwave pirates.  Are they still in business?  Does anyone know the history of that, or who was operating it?

General Radio Discussion / Bob Fass Obit

I don't remember Bob Fass, but the hi-jinks in this obit certainly brought back memories of pirate radio back in the 80's. Back then, pirate radio was cool because it was subversive and funny.  Kinda like National Lampoon doing drug and political humor on the radio.  But then again, who remembers the National Lampoon Radio hour syndicated to FM rock stations in the 70's?

I recently got back into SWL and searching for the pirates after a 30 year hiatus. I'm disappointed by all the music.  I can get that stuff from the local FM classic rock station, or Pandora, or Sirius.  I could go on but my point is that there's so much potential for pirate radio that's being missed. Pirate radio should be something you won't find in the mainstream.  Otherwise, why would you do it?

My two cents. YMMV. Void where prohibited. Cover before striking.
