Two stations have announced special programmes over the festive season:
First up is Radio Mistletoe with a seasonal greeting from Kris Kringle:
"Ho Ho Ho!!! It's almost time for Radio Mistletoe!!
We should be on the air once again over the Christmas season broadcasting from the North Pole. So be sure to listen for us!! We'd really like to personalise the show this year. If you wish, you can send us a greeting or dedication and we'll be glad to include it in the program!!!
Our e-mail address is now open. Write to us at radiomistletoe @ live.com
Make sure you get your greeting, dedication, or request in early. Help us make this year's programme a special one!!" (via www.alfalima.net)
Also planning to take the airwaves is FRS Holland:
"On December 28th, FRS-Holland will continue a long time tradition. And that means we invite you - the listener to participate. Forward your very own personal New Year Greetings to the Free Radio Service Holland and we will make sure it will be read out during our broadcast.
You can dedicate your greetings to friends etc. but you can also make a 'general' NY Greeting. It can be written or (preferably!) taped (cassette, CD, MD or MP3 file) and send to our P.O.Box 2702, 6049 ZG Herten in the Netherlands.
Of course the easy & quick way is by sending an e-mail to frs.holland @ hccnet.nl or frs @ frsholland.nl.
You can add something special to our December 28th broadcast by participating. So….don't hesitate and take part in the FRS Party that day. It'll be great fun. Make sure your contribution reaches us before December 5th. We are looking forward hearing from you !!! Tune on the 28th...it'll be great fun !!"
On December 28th FRSH plans to be on 6220 for at least 4 hours from 0800-1200UTC. In addition they hope to be on a different frequency as well, probably in the afternoon. FRSH also adds there is a Christmas Day surprise as the station co-operates with two other long-serving shortwave stations. It promises more details soon.
