Last ‘From the Isle of Music’ from WBCQ on March 3, 2024

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Bill Tilford, who notes:

The last broadcast of From the Isle of Music from WBCQ The Planet will be March 3 from 2200-2300 UTC on 7490 kHz.

He mentions that there simply hasn’t been the support from listeners in North America to continue broadcasting via WBCQ, thus listeners may need to use a WebSDR in order to listen to the regular broadcasts from Europe. Bill also notes:

The last episode will be a killer Cuban dance party – I am going out with a bang, not a whimper.

We look forward to tuning in! Thank you, Bill, for your dedicated music services over shortwave!
