CHIN has really gone downhill.

Just picked up a RTTY signal while listening to CJMR 1320 on my radio/record player combo.

I love This Is Criminal, The Memory Palace and Nocturne.

Happy retirement, Garrison Keilor.

Hope KJES'S new owner can make it everything he wants it to be.

Listened to the last two innings of the Buffalo Bysons game tonight. It was perfect radio for a summer Saturday evening.


Glad Mighty John Marshall has his own radio feature now.

Picked up WHHQ the other night.

Picked up WNEC the other night.

That Intact Insurance ad is stupid.

Have been picking up WDCD Albany the last several nights.

That Megamix program on that Spanish shortwave station is pretty cool.

Glad Michael Rivero is back on RBN.

Listen to B95 from Auckland, New Zealand, the coolest, edgiest radio station I have run across in a long time.

CKOL has definitely gotten a lot better. The other night, they were playing The Velvet Underground.

I love the Indian programming (especially of course the musical aspect) that replaced China Radio International on CHIN 1540.

Glad WBCQ has so many new shows.

Good songs and good music,  and good company to share them with!
That’s what you’ll find this  Sunday afternoon at the Black Dog in Stirling.
Yes! THIS Sunday afternoon! 
So come on out and join us  to share a few tunes at the Amazing Jam? Maybe some of your own, maybe a couple  from someone else....
The Black Dog, 227 West Front St. in Stirling.   
We start up at 2 pm, run until    5....
Looking forward to see you  there.
*And    don’t forget to check the Facebook page ‘BV Amazing Music’ for postings    about more music and events in this area. There’s something happening    here....
The ‘Amazing Jam’! Even more amazing music... 
This Sunday afternoon  at The Black  Dog in Stirling. We’ll be playing music there for about 3 hours. Welcomed by both staff and the patrons in the lounge and  restaurant, our music is appreciated. 
Once a month on Sunday afternoons. This Sunday afternoon (June  19th). Time is from 2 pm until 5.
The format is a ‘song circle’ with  the lead changing from person to person among the group. Everyone has the option  to offer a tune when their turn comes around, or pass to their neighbour if  they’d rather. Depending on the music, the mood, choice of instruments, etc.  some will choose to support whoever is leading a song, others may prefer to sit out and listen.   DSCF1663
We invite you to come out and join us, making music with old friends;  for sure, there’ll be some new faces too.
“Bring your instruments, your voices and your music. It’s  all unplugged  and it’s all good! Guitar, bass,  harmonica, banjo,  mandolin, ukulele,  fiddle, accordion,  flute, celtic harp – the list goes  on.
“There may be only 4 or 5 of us or maybe a whole room full of  musicians. A place for ‘first-timers’ and experienced  players alike. A  good bunch of people playing all kinds of music together.  People in their teens all the way through  proto-geezers. Maybe even an incipient-geriat or two....
“The blues does not rule. Any acoustic music from punk to polka!”
(Baritone sax and tuba set up in the  parking lot....)
Hope to see you Sunday afternoon in  Stirling.

Picked up WYMS 1360 last night.

Heard some hams talking yesterday.

Congratulations on your retirement from your WBZ radio show, Jordan Rich.

Picked up WDCX Buffalo this morning with interview show.

Picked up WDVE Rochester this morning with commercials.

I listened to the first episode of that new CBC show "Out in the Open." I'm not sure what exactly it is they're trying to achieve.

Picked up WWJ Detroit a few days ago.

I have tuned into "The Candy Pometer Show" this week. She's had some interesting guests, but I'm not sure if it's possible to keep up this kind of show in Canada.
