Mid-week Loggings: 4/23-4/24/15
Doing some listening to the radio tonight & also via the Twente online web receiver earlier.
The first print run of the 2014 Pirate Radio Annual is almost sold out. I'm looking into printing costs right now to see if it's worth ordering more copies.
The Crystal Ship: 6876, 4/24, 0040+ Heartbreak Hotel Show (lots of ballads), Julianna Montana ID. I've been lucking out & hearing TCS a lot over the past two months. As always, the signal's awesome, but tonight there's more noise as we're heading into the spring & summer months (even if it doesn't feel like it tonight). Rainbow "Stone Cold"
OTR unid: 6770, 4/24, 0330+ A Day in the Life of Dennis Day episode
European pirate loggings via the Twente web receiver:
Radio Verona: 6290, 4/23, 1455+ Weak pop music with occ. fade-ups. Light ‘70s or ‘80s pop, ‘80s pop/dance music, schlager. Fast-talking male announcer in Dutch, clear ID. Seems to be long periods of dead air
?: 6300, 4/23, 1532+ Rick James “Super Freak.” Had to leave before IDs
Radio Merlin International: 6255, 4/23, 1758+ Good signal, clear IDs from DJ with contact info “Nobody plays a better variety of music” promo. Music a little harder & angrier than I’ve typically heard from Merlin
Radio Python: 6291, 4/23, 1818+ “Altrex just closed down, but he’s not listening, I think . . . he’s moved on to better & bigger things” Asked for requests “so you don’t have to hear my crazy music” Song “Get Your Rocks Off” Mentioned that XAT screws up all of the URLs.
Delta Radio (WB): 6325, 4/23, 1920+ Electronic & dance music + Madness “Baggy Trousers,” A Flock of Seagulls “I Ran,” The Fratellis “Mistress Mabel” OM testing with “one, two” test counts at 1954 UTC. Genesis “I Can’t Dance,” Heart “Barracuda” Thanks to Metallica, “This is Delta Radio, from the south west of Holland.” Said 20 watts, Iron Butterfly “Inagaddadavida” (the single version), Led Zeppelin “Kashmir,” Metallica “Creeping Death” “Blackened”
Zender Barcelona: 1633, 4/23, 2100-2107* OM in Dutch, tough to copy IDs because he’s broadcasting for a Dutch audience and not slowing down for the IDs, mentioned “Zender Barcelona” and I could hear it clearly at sign off. Very old polkas,
