From the Isle of Music, July 23-29
This week, to celebrate the nomination of Abracadabra in the Fusion category of Cubadisco 2017, we are rebroadcasting our interview (with music) with Oriente López. We will also taste a little of Daniel Martin’s new album Distintos.
Four opportunities to listen on shortwave:
1. For Eastern Europe but audible well beyond the target area in all directions with 100Kw, Sunday 1500-1600 UTC on SpaceLine, 9400 KHz, from Kostinbrod, Bulgaria (1800-1900 MSK)
2. For the Americas and parts of Europe, Tuesday 0000-0100 UTC on WBCQ, 7490 KHz from Monticello, ME, USA (Monday 8-9PM EDT in the US)
3 & 4. For Europe and sometimes beyond, Tuesday 1900-2000 UTC and Saturday 1200-1300 on Channel 292, 6070 KHz from Rohrbach, Germany.
From the Isle of Music is not available for listening on demand but some broadcasts can be heard online during the time of the broadcast using Web SDRs or the WBCQ website (during their broadcast) if you are not receiving the radio signal.
Last week, there was fair to good reception of the signal on 9400 in Japan!
Episode 22 of Uncle Bill’s Melting Pot, a musical variety program that features a little bit of everything from around the planet, will air on WBCQ the Planet, 7490 KHz, Thursday, July 27 from 2300-2330 UTC (7:00pm-7:30pm EDT in the Americas). This week some of our stops include Colombia, South Korea and Bosnia. Lately the WBCQ signal has been punching well into Central Europe as well as the Americas.
