Flea Blocker? 6939 USB 2252 UTC 5 FEB 2024
« on: February 05, 2024, 2252 UTC »
2252 UTC Unid music...not sure of exact frequency! S9 peaks here
2256 UTC Another song of this unid genre of music...I think the 6939 USB is correct
My best description of the music is "ambient psychedelic dirge rock"  :)
2300 UTC Unid song with a familiar opening riff...
2304 UTC OM with a Donald Duck voice said something, into another song of this genre/artist
(2306 UTC OM again said something during the song but I couldn't make it out...will listen back on the recording later!)
2309 UTC OM DJ chatting...Weed Whacker?
2311 UTC More ID's during the song
2312 UTC Another ID...OP said "Flea Blocker? What the F**k"
2313 UTC Different song, same artist
(2316 UTC Getting some local QRN here...OM is talking, but buried in the noise)
2318 UTC Local noise has diminished  :)
2319 UTC ID
2324 UTC OM DJ chatting again...
2330 UTC Another musical composition by this unknown artist
2332 UTC OM DJ mention of "Ralph? ?Blocker and his Atlantic Popping Miracle Gig? performing live from Bally's? Keg and Kettle"
2335 UTC Another song
2341 UTC Another song (If I'm not mistaken, I believe I've heard this music before on 43 meters...forgot who and when)
2347 UTC OM DJ chatting, then a bit of music, and OFF

Thank you for a memorable program! I'll listen back on my recording and see if I can figure out the correct ID, and maybe use the Shazam browser extension to see if I can ID the songs/artist. This was one cool broadcast! Thank you!

After listening to several ID's, it seems that "Flea Blocker" is the ID! As expected, the Shazam browser extension could not ID the songs or artist! Here's my recording of the show:

Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using an SDRPlay RSP1A for SWL with a 40 meter band Inverted V at 40 feet. Kenwood TS-570D for ham use.

Just caught the last six minutes or so of the broadcast and just listened to my recording. It does sound like he said Flea Blocker a mention of an hour of music and a "free jar of (flim-flam?)". The music that I heard sounded like a combination of Tubular Bells and the spaghetti western movie theme songs. Wish I had heard more.
