RADIO-RELATED STUFF

Great to hear Johnny Lightning on Area 51 Sunday night.

World Harvest Radio appears to have a lot of holes in it's schedule.

I've really been enjoying the new program on WRMI "Revelation Ready." I just wish Dan Duvall would get a website.

Was hearing a weather beacon while listening to WRMI tonight.

MEDIA-RELATED STUFF

Was listening to WBCQ 7490 Sunday night till sign-off at midnight with violin-heavy instrumental version of Daftpunk "Get Lucky." Signal excellent.

Signal fair to good on WBCQ 5110 Sunday night listening to Plastic Magic.

I see by WWCR's latest schedule that Gene Scott and his widow are no longer on that station 24 hours a day: just 21 hours Monday-Friday, 22 hours Saturday and all day Sunday. Also Brother Stair is on Transmitter Four less than in his heyday in the nineties.

So George is going to host "Hockey Night in Canada" even though he doesn't know anything about sports. Also, he and Don Cherry are probably polar opposites on most issues.

Ben Swan seems like a fairly good talk show host from the half hour or so I listened to him today.

RADIO-RELATED STUFF

Been hearing that reverb ham letters and numbers again on WTWW 5830.

Was picking up WBCQ 7490 till near midnight last night. Lots of good stuff, too: an old episode of "Radio Tim Tron", "Lumpy Gravy", "The Eric Daltry Mystery Hour", and one of Michael Ketter's old broadcasts.

Was picking up WINB this afternoon. Signal not the best but could make out preacher, clear ID and into woman preacher.

Picked up the mighty KBC last night.

AN INTERESTING STORY

A few years ago a friend of mine and his girlfriend agreed to board his parents' cat at their place while the parents were on vacation. The friend's cat, who was still fairly young at the time and had never met a fellow feline, was excited to have another cat visiting her house. However, the friend's cat and the friend's parents' cat just did not get along. Despite the friend's cat's attempts to make nice with the other cat, the other cat was still hostile toward her.

In fact, so hostile was my friend's parents' cat toward his cat that sometime after my friend and his girlfriend had the mean cat at their place, my friend, while grooming his cat one day, found a claw in her head.

MEDIA-RELATED STUFF

I don't at all like that Coors Light vented can commercial.

It sucks Deana Spengola won't be heard weekdays on RBN anymore.

Got WBCQ clearly tonight for the first time in a few months.

Cool about all the plans Allen has to better WBCQ's facilities.

Also cool Zombo's going to record some new shows.
