WBCQ celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first broadcast of Radio Caroline with special programming
On March 28, 1964, Radio Caroline began broadcasting on 199 meters (1520 KHz) from the MV Caroline , anchored off the coast of England. Radio Caroline went on to revolutionize radio and popular music in the United Kingdom and the world, and influenced an entire generation.
WBCQ will be airing special programming celebrating the legacy of Radio Caroline and offshore free radio starting Friday night, March 28, 2014, at 8:00pm US eastern time (0000 UTC Saturday) on 5.110, 7.490, and 9.330 MHz with Allan Weiner Worldwide. Special programming will continue on 5.110 MHz following Allan’s show this evening and for the next week.
This is a WWII Navy model TCK-4, our latest backup transmitter.
WBCQ is hosting a celebration of Jennifer’s life tomorrow at Monticello. Part of this celebration will be airing classic episodes of Jennifer’s radio show “867-5309″ on Saturday from 2 to 7 p.m. US eastern time (1800-2300 UTC).
MONTICELLO, Maine — Jennifer grew up in Bourne, but recently lived in Maine and Florida. She and her husband owned several commercial AM, FM and shortwave radio stations in northeastern Maine. They both wrote and hosted many public talk shows.
Jennifer was an electronics expert and an advanced computer programmer. She worked for the U.S. Navy and IBM in Groton, CT.
As a child she flew with her father, Christopher Garland, and later earned her pilot’s license. She was an avid horsewoman, tennis player, scuba diver, amateur radio operator — and had an irresistible sense of humor.
Jennifer was deeply religious in the Christian faith and was prayerful, empathetic and kind to all who knew her.
She leaves behind her beloved husband, Allan Weiner, her mother Frances Anderegg, stepfather Jack Anderegg, sister Jill, brother Charles Garland and many dear stepsiblings and cousins in the Cape Cod area and far beyond.
Funeral service Monday August 12th at noon, at the Nickerson-Bourne Funeral Home on Macarthur Blvd in Bourne.
No flowers, please. Or perhaps make a donation to your favorite charity.
For more information, please listen to Allan’s radio show from Friday, August 16, 2013, available on our archive server.
