Awesome! This was my first pirate logged sometime in 1982!!! Brings back some great memories of pirate radio back before the days of the internet :) :) :)

Hearing the late great R F Burns voice again reminds me of how much he sounded like Joe Adimov from Radio Moscow's "Moscow Mailbag".

You never knew when or where on the shortwave bands RC would turn up..sometimes in the middle of the shortwave broadcast bands!

OFF at 0057 UTC
Thank you very much to the relayer for this show! You made my whole week with this! Ahhh, the old days 8)
