Hmmm...a trip to the local ASPCA would probably yield at least a half dozen abandoned pitbulls who would love to patrol your backyard and be your life long friend and protector for a plate of Alpo, water, and an affectionate  pat on the head... ;)

JOE SAMPLE R.I.P. 1939-2014

Joe Sample, who became a jazz star in the 1960s as the pianist with the Jazz Crusaders and an even bigger star a decade later when he began playing electric keyboards and the group simplified its name to the Crusaders, died on September 12, 2014 in Houston. He was 75. The cause was mesothelioma (cancer of the lungs), said his manager, Patrick Rains. Among the albums on which his keyboard work can be heard are Marvin Gayeís Whatís Going On, Joni Mitchellís Court and Spark and The Hissing of Summer Lawns, Tina Turnerís Private Dancer, Steely Danís Aja and Gaucho, and several recordings by BB King.

I had the good fortune to see him with the Crusaders opening up for the Rolling Stones in Boston Garden during the 1975 Stones tour. I had never heard of them at the time, but I was immediately impressed as soon as they started the opening number of the show. There was no question that the audience was also very impressed....they blew the walls out of the building!

Found this in my in box in reply to an inquiry with scant details supplied, as I was going to send a full report to them if the email address was correct! Thanks Chris S for providing what turned out to be the correct decryption of one tough ID!
THANKS Jerry!!! Happy to get this one for the Pirate Wall of Fame! Hope to hear some more from 3885 Radio!
 :) :) :) 6919.7645 KHZ? I gotta get me a new radio ;D

Thanks Chris S :) I do believe that is the best approximation of the email address I am hearing over and over again...and it didn't bounce! But then a couple of other combinations of letters didn't either ???
Oh well, I'm sure I've ended up in someone's spam box a few times ;D

Listened back this morning to the recording and the song sounds like something Tom Lehrer would write....no ID on the tune though. I emailed the following addresses and they all bounced back:

( I can't listen to the ID anymore! It's beginning to sound like KingAHAnimal now....I give up >:( )

0100 UTC "When You're Strange"-Doors
0102 UTC "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These)-Eurythmics
0105 UTC "The Chain"-Fleetwood Mac
(Signal is pretty good here at S7 with some noise and fading)
0010 UTC Man announcer with ID and shoutouts to Skipmuck and ByteBORG! ;D
Tunes by Journey, Pat Benatar, and Rush
( Great to hear you again Renegade...sounding good tonight here in Western MA :) )
0028 UTC Shoutouts to HFU posters and chat about the "dud" solar cycle, into Van Halen
(Signal down to S5 but still well above the noise floor here)
Thanks Renegade! Great show tonight and propagation conditions were awesome!  ;D

Also here at 0005 UTC on 6919.7 KHZ, best in USB because of the selective fading. Man chatting, but music now at 0008 UTC. A rather strange song! Nice audio though, with a solid S8 signal here into Western MA
0011 UTC Man with possible ID (will have to listen back later). Thought he was off, but came back up at 0012 UTC Seems to be 2 ops chatting about getting their signal out
0020 UTC That strange "goofy bouncy " tune again ;D
0024 UTC Definitely an email address, as I could make out the gmail.com part....hmmm

Fading in and out of the noise floor here at 2143 UTC with techno/electronica tune.
2153 UTC Man announcer with ID, then into Jimi Hendrix-"The Wind Cries Mary". Nice S3 peaks :)
Deep fade at 2158 UTC...not even sure still on!

Strong into Western MA tonight with nondescript New Age music....I believe this op was on here a few months back, same frequency. If this is a pesky op, it sure beats the fishtalk! ;D
0050 UTC Seemed to be some sort of talking by man in Portuguese between songs....also a man in Portuguese talking UNDER the music after that. Interesting! Are we being fair to not call this a pirate broadcast? Probably from a boat too! :D
How about a Grand Prize DX award for the first person to QSL a pesky! ::)
Actually, the music is kinda soothing after listening to the Euro's through the ear bleeding static the past few hours!
Just before 0100 UTC, the looped piano music started while the peskies started yakking under the music.
0109 UTC Siren type noises now....someone is having fun here....I think they put something in the vinho :o

Tango Italia is booming in here since 2355 UTC with S5 peaks! Best I've ever heard them. Signal is stronger than the static bursts from the local rainstorm.
Man announcer at 0000 UTC with ID's...the longest I've ever heard the op talk! 0001 UTC Tango!
0010 UTC The coolest jazz tango I've ever heard, with some flashy lead guitar work!
0018 UTC Short ID by man announcer, then a song that doesn't sound like a tango :o
0033 UTC CW and ID's in various languages by man announcer. IS?
0035 UTC Music
0038 UTC More CW and ID's, IS then off at 0039 UTC Carrier off at 0040
(Nice to hear Tango Italia with this good a signal...would have been excellent if not for the storm static. I'd give this reception a 45333 overall)

Just above the noise here from 2212 UTC with "You Better You Bet"-Pete Townshend and "Don't Stand So Close To Me"-Police. OFF at 2229 UTC

Fair signal here just above the noise with good peaks from 2007 UTC with late 50's/early 60's Doo Wop tunes, man announcer at 2019 UTC, into another Doo Wop tune. I love this "Clear Channel" frequency!
