If you missed hearing the Virtual Dance party by Paul Walker at KSKO which was scheduled to air this morning between 0300-0500 UTC, you weren’t alone.
I scheduled a notification to announcing that the date had to be moved due to a schedule conflict at KSKO, but I had the date incorrectly entered in the notice so it didn’t publish. Apologies to Paul and anyone who tried to tune in.
The Virtual Dance Party will be held on Saturday, March 27th 2021 from 0300 to 0500 UTC on 7570 kHz for the west coast and 7780 kHz for the east coast.
Our friend and contributor here on the SWLing Post and the Shortwave Radio Audio Archive, Paul Walker, has been interviewed and featured on the ABC Newcastle program Drive with Paul Turton. It’s a great segment! (Congrats, Paul!)
Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Paul Walker, who shares the following announcement:
Tune into WRMI for “The LIVE Friday Night Virtual Dance Party Request Party Thingy” from community station 89.5 KSKO McGrath, Alaska.
The broadcast will take place on Saturday, March 20th 2021 from 0300 to 0500 UTC on 7570 kHz for the west coast and 7780 kHz for the east coast. KSKO Program Director Paul Walker is going to be hosting the show and WILL take requests by phone at (907) 524-3001 DURING the show!
It’ll be all kinds of music from the 60s to today from all genres, so there’s probably going to be something for everyone. Paul says, “I’m funding the WRMI airtime costs from my own personal pocket, not the stations bank account. I’m doing it just because, for fun.. because I can.. because why not?”
Thanks, Paul! I’ll certainly tune in and perhaps even call in!
I’ve just heard from SWLing Post contributor, Paul Walker, who now works at KSKO in McGrath, Alaska. He’s paid to broadcast KSKO 89.5’s special 2 hour all-Christmas music show on shortwave via WRMI’s 100,000 Watt 5950 kHz transmitter in Okechobee, Florida. The broadcast will take place from 2300 UTC on Thurs. Dec 24th to 0100UTC Fri. Dec. 25th (6-8PM EST). Paul mentioned that he’s doing this for fun and to share a little Christmas cheer from Alaska.
Thanks, Paul, and Merry Christmas!
