Fat, 10 over signal. You think he'd play "Grandma Got Ran Over By a Reindeer" a few times in a row after the unforgivable thing he did to WART on Christmas Eve.

Pigmeat: We think you mean WANK and they were off 3 minutes (0155 UTC) before our interval started at 0158.  We had a clear frequency or would not have started.  Hats off to WANK for the pre-show!  We loved it!  More pirates are better!

I heard it live, you ran over WANK. And now you're playing the abomination called "Feliz Navidad". You could at least play the Charro version so we could hear her chi-chi's banging up against that amplified acoustic guitar.

Pigmeat:  You couldn't even spell the station's call right, so your report is suspect.  They were clearly receivable on our announced and unusual pirate frequency at our location until the perfect time for us to start.  It seemed to us that we were working together for everyone's enjoyment.  Anyone who thinks differently should email BallSmacker@protonmail.net and let us know.  We respect and encourage all pirate transmissions until there is a legal option for North America (at less than 50kW) like there is in other countries on our precious, but fading, shortwave frequencies.  Shout out to them as just coincidentally we had that song as our second.  Let's tie these TXs together to put together a whole night of music!  We are almost always under 2 hours.
