Tuned in before checking HFU and immediately recognized Radio Animal's voice. Not sure if this is an old show or something new. He said he gave a heads up to a few people, including AJ Michaels. Great to hear WKND again!

Finally! A Real Dog station, and not one of those phony ones that's been popping up lately! Of course, I was recovering from a car wreck in the hospital away from my radios. If I didn't have bad luck, I'd have no luck at all.

I listened to the recording more closely and I think the WKND show was from sometime around 1996. Also, shortly following it was a Radio Free Euphoria show that I think was also from the 1990s (early or mid). Signal was deteriorating at this point, so I didn't get a lot of info. I assumed that these two relays were a different station from the CPRRS relay later, in part because of the change in modes (AM to USB), but also because I didn't hear any CPRRS IDs between the WKND & RFE shows. Also, I've never heard CPRRS run that long.

Pigmeat: I tried to e-mail a get-well wish to you, but it bounced, so I tried to send an HFU message to you, but your account isn't set up to receive messages. So, I'll just say it here: hope you heal up well & hope you're feeling a lot better

It's not? That explains why I never got a response from you when I saw your son was getting married on your Hobby Broadcasting blog. I tried using the PM service here when your email failed. Lord, I can remember when he was playing Little League baseball.

It's all Fansome's and Smolinski's fault, as usual.

I gave up on my Yahoo email accounts after having three go "poof" inside of a year and a half. Boomer has my main Gmail addy

Pigmeat: Thanks for the info

Received an e-QSL from CPRRS today. WKND was relayed by them, followed by RFE, The Joint, Microdot Radio, WPUP, and Voice of the Inky Pen. Unfortunately, I missed the last four.
