Bollywood on Long Island
« on: December 06, 2018, 2128 UTC »

So, on December 3 WLIE 540am became WBWD (Bolly 540 am).  Coming in perfectly across the Sound into southern New England.  I believe this is New York's first East Asian formatted station.  Now I'll be impressed if we get play by play of the India Premier League and India Institute of Technology squash scores.

Zenith T/O G500, Zenith T/O Royal 7000, Emerson AR-176, Zenith 8S154, T/O 7G605 (Bomber), Tecsun PL-880 using 40 feet of copper wire. 
QTH: Durham, Connecticut  (rural setting, 15 miles north of Long Island Sound)

I've been known to hit the Indian and Pakistani cricket boards. There's just enough knowledge of English for it to be the primary language of 90% of the boards. The insults are inventive, to say the least. It's some of the funniest stuff I've ever read.
