HB Radio #4 on 5130 3/16 EDT
« on: March 13, 2023, 2107 UTC »
Hi,
Just wanted to let you know that HB Radio #4 is on the air Thursday night on the 5130 kHz transmitter of WBCQ at March 16 at 11 PM EDT/10 Central (UTC 0400 3/17). This one's a change of pace, in some ways from the last: about 9 minutes of brief shortwave news & audio clips into a long interview with Tha Dood, who has run Part-15 and carrier-current stations for 40 years and is active on HFU.

If you don't typically stay up 'til 0500 or are out of the signal range of WBCQ, it's possible that it could be relayed by other outlets at a later date. Also, I can send out some MP3 copies. I'll eventually post the shows on one of the platforms, but I'm trying to catch up with things here . . . and I tend to procrastinate with jumping into new technologies.

BTW, I've finished most of the part 2 episode with Chris Smolinski & plan to finish it soon. Then I'll make it available . . . maybe in about two weeks, but we'll see.

Thanks for your interest, patience, and/or support and hope you like the show!
Andrew

Re: HB Radio #4 on 5130 3/16 EDT, Boomer caught it!

Yeah... Boomer caught it on his Kiwi-SDR.   http://boomerthedog.com/Tha-Dood-On-WBCQ-5130.000-sam-3-16-23.mp3   There, y'all can check it out, before I do.
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a burial that will satisfy everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.

Re: HB Radio #4 on 5130 3/16 EDT. Andrew re-interview?
« Reply #12 on: March 20, 2023, 1942 UTC »
I'm still working on a couple of fronts for another Andrew Yoder follow-up interview, to the 9/10/2001 C2C AM one with the late Art Bell. I've pretty much given-up on George Noory, but still tapping on to Richard Syrett's newer podcasts, Strange Planet,  https://tunein.com/podcasts/News--Politics-Podcasts/Richard-Syretts-Strange-Planet-p1085643/?topicId=266129453 and  https://www.strangeplanet.ca/ . He hasn't said NO to this. Other possibilities maybe Ian Punnett and Connie Willis. https://www.conniewillis.com/  Maybe, even George Knapp? Sooner, or later, someone should say, YES.
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a burial that will satisfy everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt.
