My first time listening to this "mighty kbc" thing.  Reminds me of 80s shortwave when rock music was aired: think WRNO, KUSW, etc.  It's refreshing for a change.

WRNO was my favorite and miss it to this day.

I remember KUSW and they were decent.

Earlier this year, WTWW had a Sat (or Friday(?)) night music program and played music like WRNO/KUSA/KBC.

SIO 544 into southern Wisconsin.  When KBC's signal is good, it's very, very good!  :D  Multilingual English, Dutch, German and French ID and frequency info at 0116, which makes a Chanter happy!  

Oop, digital transmission at 0127.  Alas, I lack FLDigi.  Ah well.  

Into 'London Calling' at 0130.  I've only heard a recorded live version of this before.  Hmm.
