Did Jay, Al Weiner, and Mal ever figure that one out?

I think Mal rebuilt one but it only received Captain Ron broadcasting from his cardboard box outside Fansomeís trailer behind the A&P.

Off topic, whatever became of Capt. Ron? He, Andy Yoder, and I appeared on a regional radio show to talk Pirate Radio two nights before 9/11. I saw him logged in to the FRN a couple of times later on, then he was gone.

Fansome's constant nonsense about penguins and tire pressure probably drove him off

I havenít heard from him in years. We used to trade emails, if you are out there Ron, let us know. Iíll try some of my old email addresses and see if I get an answer,
