Oh yeah... I certainly remember the morning of 9/11/2001, since I was on the road to my Grandpa's funeral in Buffalo, NY. Needless to say, 930WBEN was exciting to listen too right then, as my family and I did. However, I was sleep deprived from staying up all night, 9/10/2001, for big night on the then Art Bell's Coast To Coast AM, when his guest was Andrew Yoder, on the subject of Pirate Radio, mainly the shortwave scene. I stayed up to record off-air the whole thing off of WHTK 1280AM. (I did the same with the Pat Murphy interview as well.) I thought that it all went well, Art got to tune-in to what may have been his 1st pirate station on shortwave, He Man Radio doing the broadcast for the occasion. Art actually aired several pirate ID's and actually aired a full skit from The Voice Of Laryngitis, as well as promote Hobby Broadcasting Zine. Also, a mention of Number Stations that Art has tuned-in to before. I was actually happy with the whole show, then the events of what happened a few hours later totally erased everything. Andrew's thunder was really sniff-out, for sure. Certainly glad that I did the off-air records, and they were on-line on a couple of sites. Are they still? So, even though the terrible events to the twin towers changed everything in America, and even the World, the night before, 9/10/2001, turned out to be the radio event that was, then all of a sudden, wasn't.

When asked about White Supremacy, I do not believe in it, since most white people that I know are very much mediocre. Therefore, I believe in White Mediocracy.
