Well spring is officially here, but it sure doesn’t feel like it here in New England. Just about all parts of New England received record amounts of snowfall this winter, including the area where I present you with some new IDs from tonight, Cape Cod. Here’s some new IDs from there, over the past couple years.
As I slowly work as hard as I can to catch up with my backlog of IDs recorded (I’m up to January of this year…) I happen to be home tonight, so what better time than now to clear out my local Boston folder! Included in the update is the launch of 101.7 The Bull in June.
Yes, it’s been a while since I’ve posted an update as well. Guess it’s been a busy summer. Anyway, I’ve been trying to catch up on audio recorded over the past year, and am making significant progress. Today here is some new audio from in and around the largest market in the country. Enjoy new audio from New York City, Long Island, and the Bridgeport-Danbury area of CT.
It was just about a year ago that I was on a business trip in Jacksonville, FL. It was quite eerie hearing all the news reports about the terrible events at the Boston Marathon back home, on the local stations down there. I wasn’t able to get a complete set of IDs for the market, but managed to get quite a few, so enjoy April 2013 IDs from Jacksonville.
This week, fellow DXer Mark Connelly mentioned on some local email lists about how he has been converting recordings made from May 1, 1986 (by Craig Healy) and April 1, 1991. Normally any audio from that long ago would be interesting to hear, but these are even more special. They were recorded through the method described here http://chowdanet.com/markc/webpage/WA1ION/vcrdx.pdf where VCR tapes were used to directly capture large portions of the band. These days, this sort of thing is made easy with recording SDRs such as the Perseus. I have one of those myself, and have still not taken full advantage of it’s abilities in the 2+ years that I’ve owned it. Anyway, enjoy some very special IDs from Albany, Boston, Buffalo, New York, Philadelphia, Providence, and Washington. Thanks very much to Mark Connelly and Craig Healy for their unique time capsules of the AM broadcast band!
