KADS 6925 *0516 - 0547*

Recorder Catch, RX on 6925.0 USB, seemed to be around S6 to S7 here

0516 Spoof commercials alternating with IDs.  Some of the commercials included:
    - Sleepy Bear Coffee, "the most stimulating thing you can do with your mouth"
    - Door Stoppers
    - Disposable Car
    - Go Far Travel Brokers
    - Convergence Airlines, "NY to Paris in 5 minutes"
    - Winner Golf Balls, "you'll never lose again"

Several IDs such as "You are listening to KADS, All ADs Radio.  All ads all the time.  No news, no music, no talk.  Just ads."  "If you like what you're hearing, go out and buy something."

0525 Played a block of music
0547 off

I cannot find any recent reference to this.  In 1966 Gordon McLendon ran a station with this call, which ran only commercials.  It was a flop.  This does not appear to be rebroadcast of that operation, but I am not certain if this is a new pirate or a relay of an older pirate.  Any help would be appreciated.

Really enjoyed the show, and would likewise appreciate your QSL.

I did a search and found this. There was a comedy troupe in the late 70's and
through the 80's called 'Duck's Breath Mystery Theatre', that did comedy sketch performances
and radio skits mainly on national public radio.  One of their radio skits was the 'Sleepy Bear Coffee
Minute Mysteries' with Professor Nervo. It sounds like maybe someone has a recording
of some of their radio skits and rebroadcast one. :-)

SDR recording catch. 0516 sign on with S7 to S8 signal. Starting with Minute Mystery, brought to you by Sleepy Bear, the over the counter coffee.

Thanks for the unique and interesting program! I'd greatly appreciate a QSL, if you offer one.
