Today, January 20th is "Penguin Awareness Day"

They'll be migrating back north in a couple of months. Beware of low fliers and stay away from bodies of water, they can propel themselves at hypersonic speeds onto land. Be careful and beware.

This has been a public service announcement from FANCO Industries, Refiners of Whale Oil for Lighting and Lubrication for over Two Hundred and Fifty years. Look for the Penguin on the containers.

HAPPY DJ DAY, YEAH MAN  https://nationaldaycalendar.com/national-disc-jockey-day-january-20/

Nice combination of two days in one  ;D
Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using a Sony ICF-2010 with a 25 meter (80 ft) longwire antenna in a tree.

Of course it is. Fansome  and I were two of the happiest DJ's alive aboard the whaler "Belinda", powering the generator with whale oil, that fed our 200 gigawatt transmitter, out on the high sea's. We blasted the penguin flocks as we rounded the Horn w/ Go-Go's tunes. Some people blamed us for the hole in the ozone layer, but that was the fault of those damned penguins taking off in great waves disturbing the upper atmosphere.

Whaling is an easy business these days. They swim up on the beaches, waiting to be harpooned. Luckily, we patented a method for tagging our whales before they beach. We've got a family by the name of Ahab, who are champion whale rider's. They tag them right behind the blow-hole, with a surgical steel spike, stamped "Property of FANCO". Haven't lost one to salvagers or do-gooder's since.

As receiver of all negative waves, I got a message from Fansome saying that the Belinda has been recommissioned in the hereafter. However, he has been harassed several times by a skiff containing Beans, Mosby, Thumper and Bouncer all ranting about the coming rodent revolution. He's hoping the penguins will return and provide some air cover.

He'll blast them with the water cannons we used to wash the whale offal over the side. You can't Mosby away from a water cannon in a skiff.
