Offshore Pirate Radio Free America 1973

Before Radio New York International did it's broadcasts off the coast of Long Island during the late 80's, there was an earlier offshore pirate in 1973 that dropped anchor off the coast of Cape May for a very short time: http://www.nj.com/inside-jersey/index.ssf/2014/03/the_pirate_of_collingswood_th...

Ray Manzarek RIP

It was sad to hear that another key to The Doors, Ray Manzarek, died Monday (5/20/13) in Germany at the age of 74 from bile duct cancer. His unique keyboard sounds will definately be missed. Here are some videos to showcase his great talent: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLCZ2mrbQ-Q http://www.yout...

Blizzard of 2013

Local TV stations have been showing pictures and video of the blizzard that hit the Northeast. I came across a NASA image that I think shows the total effect from the storm:

FM Pirate 92.1

Last night (2/1/13) around 6pm while doing some errands I came across a fm pirate on 92.1 on my car radio. They were relaying rock music from the Boomerradio.com website. Did not catch any relay ID, only the website ID "...you're listening to Boomerradio.com...". The 92.1 freq is unused in my area. ...

WBCQ financial trouble?

I wonder if WBCQ is having some financial trouble up there in Maine. Came across a listing that WBCQ FM is for sale. The asking price is $1,000,000.00. Someone posted that the station is probably worth no more than $65,000.00 with very little equipment and no real estate. http://www.radiotvdeals.com...
