The Mighty KBC, 9450 0000 11/25
« on: November 24, 2012, 2359 UTC »
I know this's technically dated ahead a few minutes, but 2353 already had KBC tuning up their transmitter.  Booming carrier on 9450.  *anxiously awaits sign-on!*

Edited to add: Boom!  On promptly at 0000 with a lovely 'rocking over the ocean' Mighty KBC ID, then into "The Twist"!  SIO 544 here, only some minor fading and static.  
Oh man, Venga Boys!  That song reminds me happily of the spring of '99.  I was fourteen.  
Multilingual English, Dutch, French and possibly German ID at 0042.  :)  

*parks radio dial in one position for a bit*  

Data transmission at 0130, and is that Kim Andrew Elliot?  Huh, I always thought that was a lady.  I figured Andrew-Elliot was a dual last name... shows what I know, and Kim can be a male name.  Ooooopsie.

The Mighty KBC also roaring in to upstate NY at 0000 with a 20 over 9 signal.  Chubby Checker's "Twist Again" at tune in.  Live DJ and canned ID at 0002, into Temptations "Get Ready".  My first time for this one.  Nice sound, great wide age range music mix and fun patter.  Lotsa fun...
