FTIOM & UBMP Farewell to Europe Marathon March 8


Farewell To Europe Special Marathon
Channel 292, 6070 kHz
March 8, 0800-2400 CET (0700-2300 UTC)

From “Uncle Bill” Tilford, producer and host of From the Isle of Music and Uncle Bill’s Melting Pot:
Personal financial circumstances beyond my control recently made it necessary for me to discontinue broadcasts of my programs from stations in Europe, and Channel 292 has made the wonderful gesture of throwing us a going-away party – a 16 hour marathon of some of our favorite From the Isle of Music and Uncle Bill’s Melting Pot episodes on 6070 kHz on March 8 from 0800-2400 CET (0700-2300 UTC).   Working with the station and interacting with its listeners  has been a joy these past few years,  and I am deeply humbled by this act of generosity.  I hope to be able to return to broadcasting from Europe some day.  In the meantime, I have personally selected some favorite episodes of both shows from the past few years for this special event.   Let us make the most of  this bittersweet moment. 
– “Uncle Bill” Tilford
