More shortwave radio related swag arrived in the mail today, a giant 28 by 14 inch wall calendar from Voice of Korea, DPRK (North Korea).  Click on the link to see all 13 pages from the calendar.

Ah yes, even in death the Great Comrades are with us always. Is there any way to coax you into posting images for every month? :D

Edit: saw the link to the whole album. Most excellent.

My favorite yearly gift calendar was from KBS - each year a different theme - parks, historic landmarks, religious sites, transportation, etc.  One year it was solely K-pop bands, made for quite the conversation piece in my office.   ;)

flipping a calendar's page ahead of time brings bad luck
Most times & frequencies posted are only an approximation.
Due to adulteration of the E.N.I.G.M.A. "designators" they're never posted nor ever used.

Back in the 70's, the National Lampoon ran a parody of Playboy's annual "Girls of The Big 10" (and various conferences) with "Girls of The Communist Bloc". Miss DRNK was a young lady in shredded clothes holding a giant wrench, identified as "Miss Kim; mechanic at Power Station 24" and her line was "My clothes were blown off in boiler explosion".

The don't really deify them until after they die, or are getting close to it. Unless his morbid obesity takes him down by the age of 50, it's going to be a long time until he's getting that treatment.
