WBCQ begins new program, Cruisin Radio
Cruisin Radio’s Arthur Burton and WBCQ’s Allan Weiner are both people with a long reputation of being pirates at some time in their past, albeit on different sides of the pond, and in Arthur’s case even present, so when two pirates join together does that make Maine’s WCBQ Short Wave now a sort of super pirate?
Starting on 1 October, Cruisin Radio will be doing weekly hour broadcasts every Friday initially, for two months at 2300 UTC on 6160 kHz, that will be 7pm EDT and 12 Midnight in the UK during October, but that changes when those times go back an hour when the clocks change at the end of October.
Cruisin Radio is an Internet station of some years standing, started and run by Arthur Burton, a pirate of many decades experience, going back to the 1970s when he started on Radio Jackie and later Sun Radio London. He was on Nova Italy, RFL, and appeared on the shipborne Radio Caroline in the '80s. Cruisin Radio thrives on quality in both music and presentation and is on the net 24/7 as well as Short Wave at times. E-QSL’s will be available by going to the Cruisin Radio contact page:
