Any of you who’ve been following the SWLing Post for a while know how much I love recording music over the shortwaves. Lately, Radio Kuwait has been booming into my part of eastern North America with great vivacity.
Yesterday, I recorded several hours of their broadcast on my WinRadio Excalibur. I couldn’t help but notice, the last time I posted a recording, that their music had a great deal of variety. Their mix yesterday afternoon encompassed hip hop, country, pop, rock, R&B, and even a little Billy Joel and Donovan.
Though the hip-hop and boy bands don’t particularly hold my personal interest, hearing “Mellow Yellow” over 7,000 miles of ether certainly has appeal.
If you’re looking for music variety (well, a lot of variety), with some items of cultural interest thrown in, check out Radio Kuwait:
Greetings from Mexico.
Who knows the e-mail address on the Kuwait Radio website?
73 from Mexico.
The last time I heard “Mellow Yellow” on shortwave, it was a WBNY Commander Bunny satire. I always meant to post some of those WBNY tracks to ShortWaveMusic back in the day…
Oh-you should still post’em if you got’em, Myke! Were you receiving WBNY on the west or east coast?
East coast for sure. The shortwave out here sucks.
