Who was the guy who broadcast nightly on 3885 in AM about 20 years ago? He took calls and interviewed people, he'd even give his call sign. He said his mission was to save the AM window for hams. He did his part by hogging it every evening for months.

Huh... Tried listening to 75M AM at stupid oīclock at night, but even on the W.O.G. Antenna, I still get an earful of lightning crashes. A couple of īSī units in LSB, but much more in AM. Web Kiwi-SDRīs maybe the way-duh-go until like mid-October, or November. However, what activity I was hearing was on 3873kHz, so it makes me wonder if they were trying to keep away from 3885.
I was asked if I liked the 80's pop band The Go-Go's, and I answered that I listened to them, like many other Top 40 pop bands of the time, so Eh. However, I did mention that I did kind of feel sorry for them, since I thought that the band members couldn't have sex. I was then asked, "What do you mean?" My reply was, "Duh... They sing about it themselves, their lips are sealed!".
