This one once QRM'd me after a long hiatus due to an accident. You can bet I reported it on the FRN. I think it was their first broadcast back around 2003? The guy's on that board were a little tone deaf on accents. They thought Sunshine had an English accent? She had a southern Appalachian accent like everyone who speaks proper English does. Al Fansome said they were all right, so I forgave them.

Al was always right, except when he disagreed with me. He was the King of Pirate Radio.
