I’m very grateful to Shortwave Radio Audio Archive contributor, Greg Shoom, who is digitizing shortwave radio recordings he made in the 1970’s.

His latest contribution is a 1976 recording of HCJB’s 45th Anniversary broadcast. This is a special program, broadcast on Christmas Day of 1976 to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the founding of HCJB. Greg made this recording from his home in Kingston, Ontario, Canada on December 25, 1976, starting at 02:30 UTC on 6,095 kHz.
