The Giant Jukebox tonight via shortwave

wurlitzerJukeboxI’ve just learned that The Mighty KBC will broadcast The Giant Jukebox on Sunday from 00:00 – 01:00 UTC. 

To be clear, that’s tonight in North America–and only four hours from time of this posting!

Frequency will be 9,925 kHz.

I’ll try to listen from here in Québec. I hope their 125,000 watts will punch through the local QRM!

Correction: The Giant Jukebox broadcast time


I’ve just received a confirmation from The Mighty KBC that The Giant Jukebox will be on the air this Sunday (June 19) from 08:00-10:00 UTC. This is a correction to the UTC time in our previous post..

If propagation isn’t favorable where you live, consider tuning to 6095 kHz on Sunday via the University Twente WebSDR.

I’ve just heard from The Mighty KBC that they will not move to their summer frequency of 9,925 kHz until May 2014.

Until then, you will still hear the KBC’s Giant Jukebox show on Sundays (Saturday evening in the Americas) at 00:00 UTC on 7,375 kHz. Note that this only applies to KBC broadcasts to North and South America.

If you’ve never heard The Mighty KBC’s Giant Jukebox, listen to what you’re missing!

The Mighty KBC’s Giant Jukebox is moving to a new winter frequency

wurlitzerJukeboxI’ve just heard that The Mighty KBC is moving their Giant Jukebox program from 9,925 kHz to 7,375 kHz for the winter listening season. The KBC broadcast will still be scheduled on Sundays from 00:00 – 02:00 UTC.

The Giant Jukebox is an easy catch in North America and well worth tuning in as Eric always spins excellent tunes. For a sample, check out this recording from May 2013.
