"I will be on WBCQ Area 51 following Allan Weiner Worldwide with my brand new show the Hall of Fame Spotlight. Allan usually  wraps up his show around 9:15 pm Eastern or so and then I’ll be on after him, 5110 khz on WBCQ.

So tune into WBCQ, Area 51, 5110 kHz Friday nights a little after 9pm eastern and catch the Hall of Fame spotlight where we will be taking an in depth look at some of the best pirate shortwave radio has to offer.

Gary Drew writes: "A very interesting story of how WNKR used to broadcast on shortwave between the years between 1987 and 1994. Slightly edited for some language issues but great fun.
