    I caught this evening’s inaugural broadcast. It definitely delivered variety. Bluegrass, (comedic) blues, polka, AC/DC gone polka (seriously!), Bulgarian and… Cuban? These types of programs are exactly what shortwave needs right now. An oasis among all the news, religion and politics.

    Thanks, Uncle Bill. Much appreciated.

      Uncle Bill sez…….

      Thank you kindly, Peat. The song that you were wondering about possibly being Cuban was actually Manu Dibango, originally from Cameroon, now in Europe.
      We do have another program dedicated to Cuban Music, From the Isle of Music, on WBCQ 7490 as well as Channel 292 in Germany and undergoing tests with
      Spaceline in Bulgaria.
      Fred Waterer’s article in this month’s The Spectrum Monitor mentions a few programs by different people that are worth a listen. There are a few of us out there for those
      who seek. i agree that there is room on the airwaves for plenty more.
      Thanks again, and
