Pirate Radio Recordings: UNID (percussion)

AlwaysBeAPirateOn New Year’s Eve (December 31, 2013), while band scanning, I tuned to 6,955 kHz around 22:15 UTC, and  heard a relatively strong pirate station.

For at least 51 minutes, this unidentified pirate played various percussion music, much of which sounded like recordings of live drum circles. I never heard an ID during the broadcast, nor did anyone on the HF Underground board.

    Very cool! I think I could listen to this for hours on end and I will. Thanks for sharing. I love hearing variety from pirate broadcasters rather than just AOR cuts 🙂

      You’re quite welcome, Sean! I actually fell asleep listening to this recording last night. I include all of my pirate radio recordings on the Shortwave Radio Audio Archive, by the way. You can actually podcast and automatically download recordings (of which, pirate radio recordings represent perhaps 35% of the recordings).
