HB Radio Show #2 in the can


I finished Hobby Broadcasting Radio show #2 a few days ago & it's scheduled to be aired on EST Thursday December 15 at 11 PM Eastern/10 PM Central, which is UTC Friday December 16 at 0400 UTC on WBCQ's 5130 kHz transmitter.

This month's show features interviews with CIDX pirate radio columnist Chris Lobdell, who also created the Pirating with Cumbre show that was on via WHRI years ago, and with James Brownyard, who was widely heard on his pirate shortwave station WHYP from 1998 to 2017.

For those who have asked about relaying it: I'm not sure what the proper legal response is to that question. I'm not sure that I can legally request relays . . . and where does the line end? Could any liability be attached to expressing gratitude to a station for relaying the program without a license? I don't really know, so I'm playing it safe and simply putting it out there and if someone relays it without a license, that's beyond my control.

BTW, I have been sending out QSLs to those who send in reports for unlicensed relays, such as the one last month from Mix Radio International.

I do plan to start uploading the shows to some place like You Tube, Rumble, and/or We'll see; I haven't quite gotten there yet.

Thanks also to those people who have reached out to me already about providing interviews and recordings. I've been trying to create a schedule for future shows and I've been contacting people as I go. If you haven't heard back from me in the past month or so, it's not because I'm not interested--it's because I've just been trying to finish the last show.
