From the Isle of Music & Uncle Bill’s Melting Pot, July 9-15

From the Isle of Music, July 9-15:
No interviews this week – rather, we wander through the Fusion category of Cubadisco 2017. The winner, Buena Fe, also won the Gran Premio (Grand Prize) and the technical category for Recording. The other nominees also recorded some excellent music.
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.

Episode 20 of Uncle Bill’s Melting Pot, a musical variety program that features everything from everywhere EXCEPT music that you are probably familiar with, will air on WBCQ the Planet, 7490 KHz, Thursday, July 13 from 2300-2330 UTC (7:00pm-7:30pm EDT in the Americas). This week, we’ll stick our toes in Benin, Romania and the US (but definitely NOT Top 40)

    Great reception as always on 6070. The music fits so much the weather in Northern Europe today, thank you for always posting the schedules 🙂
