Free Radio Skybird flies again
Just a quick note to let you know that Free Radio Skybird will be heard this Sunday [October 17, 2021] on WRMI 9395 kHz at 2300 UTC. Lots of oldies, known and obscure.
Thanks for the tip, DJ Frederick! We’ll be listening!

Radio Thrift Shop is my long-standing (two decades & counting) show for LPFM stations.
Fantastic! We’ll tune in!

Saturday night (in a shortwave) style
On Saturday 5th October at 2200 UTC/ 2300 UK there’s a new transmission from DJ Frederick’s Free Radio Skybird on 6070 khz on shortwave. The later time which will help propagation hopefully is broadcast by Channel 292 and if you haven’t a shortwave set can also be heard on the SDR link on their site here.
This month’s programme will feature: Justin Patrick Moore’s Radiophonic Laboratory, Steve with Mini-indie radio and our very own One Deck Pete presenting the Skybird Mailbag. They will also play his “Solar minimum but the music’s maximum” mix that has tunes from: Froth Whitlam, Dasya, Andre J Kwenda and a worldwide exclusive from Madtone.
The programme will be available on DJ Frederick’s Soundcloud page the day before, if you want to hear the show in quality stereo. We here prefer it intermingled with the sounds of the ionosphere. Tune in and turn on whichever way you fancy!
Also this weekend coming sees the re-transmission of Free Radio Skybird’s Remixed show on Sunday 29th September at 0800 UTC (0900 UK) on 7440 khz which will feature One Deck Pete’s “Sounds of the shortwave” mix.

I just received a message from DJ Frederick noting that Free Radio Skybird will “broadcast on 4 August @ 1900 UTC on 6070 kHz.”
Free Radio Skybird is “a shortwave radio show celebrating music & culture in the spirit of free radio.”
According to our friend, One Deck Pete, he’ll feature his “Soul on shortwave” and Justin Patrick Moore from Sothismedias will feature the first episode of his Radiophonic Laboratory.
Certainly, a show not to be missed as these radio personalities are all friends of the SWLing Post!
I highly recommend tuning in to Free Radio Skybird, then sending your reception reports to: email@example.com
