    Well, reception on 9395 kHz varied from fair to non-existent for me in N.B. And 6855 kHz was completely inaudible. Furthermore, the broadcast ended up being much shorter than intended. Reception started out fair at 03:00 UTC but after about 15 minutes, the signal was buried in the noise. The signal came back to an audible level at about 04:30 UTC during the Wave Farm segment but after about 5 minutes there was an audio feed problem and after that the Shindig show was replaced by the World Music filler. Shindig never came back. Perhaps the show was recorded and will be rebroadcast like it was a couple of years ago. By the way, 9395 kHz usually provides a very good signal for me during daylight hours. Nighttime reception on this frequency is not reliable.

    Unfortunately I was unable to get reception on either frequency – not even a hint. I tried WMRI online but they had another [Spanish language] program streaming. C’est la vie.

    Thanks for sharing this the same day it airs as I sometimes see stuff like this I want to listen to and try to remember to tune in but usually forget to do it due to the news being posted days in advance and me losing track that I like seeing this happen the day you posted it.

      By the way is the 20:00 EST you posted a typo as 10 PM EST is actually 22:00 EST and 20:00 EST is 8 PM EST.
