    I really enjoy listening to the Isle of Music. I tuned in last week and the show was wonderful. I emailed a reception report to WBCQ, where I heard the show, but only received a blank WBCQ QSL. Does the Isle of Music and/or Uncle Bill’s melting pot offer unique QSL cards?

    Thanks,
    Tim B
