WBCQ is one of my favorite stations but good grief BRo. Stair (aka BS) broadcast material (audio quality) leaves some thing to be desired ... No I will NOT comment on the content.... just the audio quality.

I posted on the chat about the bad audio on 9330 khz on the 1847 utc broadcast Nov. 2 2018 before I remembered what station it was, No I wasn't giving the boot to BCQ only the crappy audio.

Well here is a recording of the audio... check it for yourself.  If you were the program director would you have let this pass?  I hope not but still we are in the days of much lower expectations. :-)

Listen for yourself;

I know BCQ needs the bucks but still.... What I think this was ... was a replay of an old show (from a telephone) played via a cassette player into a telephone...  In other words BS's 24/7 telephone broadcast...

But you be the judge.... BTW the audio did get a bit better in the next hour where it was only a single telephone involved.

BCQ has a better than average audio system and double telephone audio from a cheap cassette player tosses out spurs and garbage like all get out...

Not bee-itching BCQ just sayin'  OK?

add this to my large rip and rage pile :-)

A guy named Elvis recorded something like that shortly after the other Elvis headed for that Great Burger King in The Sky, Al.

Coincidence? I think not. The cry in the streets in mid-August of 1977 was "Elvis is dead. Long live Elvis!"

I considered it Buddy Holly's revenge. The new Elvis was the spitting image of him.

Elvis lives in a van down by the river with Salmon Rushdie and Jim Morrison.
