As you may have caught on Sunday, we are welcoming a new name to the Toppy fold: welcome Bill Harms, who has become the sixth Tophour editor and will be posting his wares on Sundays. Here’s Mr. Bill in his own words:
I am a radio nut! Although I have not made a career of broadcasting, I have always loved radio. I am an avid DXer, especially any broadcast station on any band.
On a more personal level, I am a middle aged Grandpa who has been married to the same sweet woman for over 30 years. She more than tolerates my radio obsession, and has accompanied me on many of my forays to visit radio stations and record TOH IDs.
Including DX catches, I have over 5000 unique radio station recordings. Of course, not all of them are TOHs or good quality. Right now, I am concentrating on parts of Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia which have not been covered. Additionally, I have recorded TOHs from other parts of the country and even some foreign stuff, including Korean stations with TOH IDs and call letters.
I am looking forward to participating in this project and hope to have lots of fun.
On another note, we will be reopening the site to contributions in the near future. Stay tuned for an announcement on that later in the week.
