The Eurovision Song Contest gives me seizures. Give me open mic night at a redneck beer joint with lot's of chicken wire around the stage and barrels of empties. It stops electronica dead in it's tracks.  ;)

IMH, they get double-zero straight from Morocco in the Canary Islands. No tobacco laced weed or soap bar need apply, it won't get in the game. Ask ol' Stretchy, he knows.

I wonder if they know the folks at Indy Radio? As the buzzard flies, it's not that far. I tried to get an FM'er in the Canaries to give HF a try in the aughts, but I think he was more interested in twenty-something blonde N. European girls on vacation than screwing around w/ HF. If I'd have been his age, I'd have been interested in the same thing.

Thanks for the SDR info. I'll give it a try for that trippy West African music.

I thought Jimmy Page was with the Yardbirds when they cut "The Shape of Things To Come"? Doesn't matter, they were at their best with Jeff Beck. Lot's of Hollies, they must have been Modding it out?

I've got a buddy from decades ago that used to own Snohomish Falls Brewing. Don't let him know the kind of characters I associate with now.

Huh? / JRC receiver power cords for sale on Ebay...

Who was that pirate dx'er who was crazy about those JRC radios a while back? He could get a pretty good deal on these power cords and the seller isn't that far away.

signal S8+- on the SDR in Vermont
23.57 song "Slow Train"
23.59 image on the waterfall
23-59 song "Athens to Athens"
00.05 SSTV
00.07 song "The Ballad of John Henry"


Thank you for the show. If possible, please QSL. Thank you.

Frank,if you were in the area I'd take you to the Big Bend Tunnel and show you where John Henry beat that steel driving machine. John Henry, unlike many heroes was a real man. He was buried at the graveyard at the old White House Prison in Richmond, Virginia. He was convict labor in the late 19th century. In those days once you got on the chain gang you rarely got off.

Nah, it's part of "Working Class Hero". Marianne Faithful sang it loud and proud on her cover on her late 1979 album, "Broken English". She sounded like all she'd been doing since she recorded "As Tears Goes By" in 1964 and "Broken English" 15 years later was gargling
bleach. I loved her as "God" on "AbFab" a decade later. Lulu was their only client and they were always trying to book Twiggy and Jeanie "The Shrimp" Shrimpton. Eddie would O.D. every few weeks and up would pop Marianne.

That was a month, 12/79 was a damned good one for albums,"London Calling", by The Clash, "Three Imaginary Boys", by The Cure, "Searching For The Young Soul Rebels",Dexy's Midnight Runners The Psychedelic Furs, with their eponymous named album; and all that second wave 2-Tone ska, etc... Except for the Clash, they were intro albums. The song designated for airplay on "London Calling" was the worst tune the Clash had cut in their then, three year career. Their cover of Gene Vincent And The Blue Flames, "Brand New Cadillac" had hit written all over it but the record company wouldn't back it. "New Wave" was the safe way to push punk.

I'd been a fan of Patti Smith when she and Tom Verlaine were dropping F-bombs on their cover of "Hey, Joe", while outting poor little rich girl revolutionary, Patty Hearst before she was busted and put on trial. Gary Trudeau was doing the same thing with "Doonesbury" cells, with the last letters in the final bubble of his strip on a certain day of the week spelling out the last known location of Patty H. and pals. You don't go around blowing places up and spraying down banks w/ submachine gun fire to get your jollies.

F-Bombs were about half of Patti Smith's first two albums, "Horses" and "Radio Ethiopia". She was a poet, using obscene language made it easier to rhyme the verse.

Bowie and Iggy wrote a bunch of stuff for Mott The Hoople and front man Ian Hunter wasn't shy about using the word.

There are no others. That boy is on the dope, plain and simple. He's got a case of the "Waah-waah's" from too much gasoline huffing.

Zeeky, get your head out of the Wonder Bread bag, pronto!

As for the rest of you, quit sending him rolls of paper towels. It's aiding and abetting.

Hey! Arthur was at and in charge of the turkey drop.

Wasn't "I Fought The Law.", originally a hit for the Bobby Fuller Four? Bobby died young and learned the lesson you don't openly screw around with a crazy gangster's #1 sidepiece. John Holmes learned a lesson a decade later that you don't rip the same guy off. Google ,"The Wonderland Murder's", for the details on John's tragic tale.

Zoidberg, I thought you guys delivering packages in interstellar space wouldn't have to worry about the atmosphere? You learn something new every day. Spank that one eyed wonder, Lela, goodnight for me.

SDR in NE PA? Do you ever hear a guy chanting "Hey,yay,yay,yay,yay...", and talking about, "The Chatanooga Shoeshine Boy" on that thing? They used to be kind of famous.

Instrumental guitar music and talk. 2 OM and YL . Sounds like French but it's in and out of the noise. Any ideas on this one? Heard on a W.Pa. Kiwi SDR w/ a big loop.

73
Very weak but it's not a pesky. More like a pirate.

74
Rock music and OM announcer. Westminster KIWI SDR w/ 250 ft. V-beam antenna.

This one is getting too easy, I may start listing it as a partial N. American since people in Europe have trouble hearing it. ;) SIO 222

BTW, it sounds like there's another station mixing with it. Any ideas?

Half Moon Bay is inhabited by suicidal surfers who leap off the cliffs with their boards to ride huge waves. They're not concerned about FCC
regulations when those big waves are rolling in. Nuttier than the guys who get towed out by jet ski to the Cortez Bank off of SoCal to ride waves in excess of 50 ft with a couple of wrecks to dodge.
