Rock and Roll Radio 6925 USB 0628 Jan 1, 2014
« on: January 01, 2014, 0630 UTC »
S8 With the noise hearing music. Good audio. I do not know the song.

0629 ID "This is Rock and Roll Radio. Stay tuned for more rock and roll"
Song then another ID. Signal is fading into the noise now.
Playing another song.
Gave email addy and off the air. Station ID may be something other than Rock and Roll Radio

Thanks for the show and Happy New Year

There seems to be a slight signal and modulation, but it is getting heavily splattered by CW and data here.

SDR recording catch. Same ID heard at 0629z.

Turtle Head Radio ID at 0637, so this may have been a relay?

The song "Do You Remember Rock & Roll Radio?" by The Ramones has a radio-sounding DJ at the beginning and end of the song. At the end, he says "This is Rock and Roll Radio. Stay tuned for more rock and roll," so I suspect that it was Turtlehead playing this song and not that it was a separate station or a relay

That would be my guess, Andy.

I thought someone might be running an old tape of my bogus station "Rock N' Roll Radio" when I first saw the thread. That one used the intro and outro of that Ramones tune as id's.

Turtlehead knows his music.
