Schedule changes, January 2015

The Overcomer Ministry returns, Tuesday to Sunday 0200-0400 on 7490 effective January 6. BS’s return displaces Shortwave Saturday Night – The Other Pirate Joe Show, which moves from Sunday 0200-0500 to Saturday 2300 to Sunday 0200 on 7490. Pirate Pizza Night is on hiatus for the winter, but may appear at random times.

I added Murray the Machine (WHVW’s automation system) Monday and Friday 2000 to 2100. Pirate Joe’s excellent music show is live on Tuesdays through Thursdays, but WBCQ also runs the WHVW relay on Monday and Friday at the same time.

A new show, Camp Constitution Radio with Hal Shurtleff, Tuesday 0030 to 0100 on 7490, displaces Frecuencia Al Día, which moves to Tuesday 2200-2300 on 7490.

Amos and Andy returns, now Tuesday 2200 to 2230 on 7490.
