    Alfredo, did you pick up any stations in Jamaica, Haiti and other islands?

    Having once been a bit over 300 pounds, I have been in both situations, but it’s never affected my view that if I pay for a seat, I should be able to use that seat, as should anybody I sit next to. It’s an imposition to crowd somebody out of their seat that they paid to use. I have no objection to airlines giving passengers not only more width in their seats, but more leg room too, as well as on buses and trains.

    I find it rather ironic that a guy named weiner is being knocked by a guy who calls himself dork.

    Mostly I want something that has fair selectivity and sensitivity, for listening on the highway or in town, on both bands. I’ve heard a bunch that are good at FM, but their AM is really crappy.

    A few more names, Michael Jack Kirby did “Rocket To The ’50s” and “Rocket To The ’60s” weekend mornings, Bob Simmons and Bob Dietsche (of Django Records) did an evening jazz program.

    KKSN “Brave New Radio” was a partnership between Portlander Bill Failing and radio veteran Bob Simmons. Bill was GM, Bob was program director (veteran of KSAN San Francisco), and it was a fun place to be and listen to. JW Friday, Todd Tolces, Sleepy John, Alan Stone, Rick Mitchell, Bob Galucci, Dave Harper. “Sully”, Skipp Towne, all had slots there, as well as some names that don’t come to me right now. It signed on in the spring of 1980, the format got tightened up in 1981, and strangled soon after. First it went “Star Station” satellite programming, then came a switch to classical.

    Sometimes Jim Bohannon was interesting, because he was a DXer too, and once a year or two would have a special broadcast with mostly shortwave personalities onall night, some good tapes of radio broadcasts and events. Up all night.

    I was guessing Bill Failing had the jingles.

    When I lived in Astoria I could get Eugene and Vancouver (BC), as well as KPQ Wenatchee.

    Point a strobe light at him, hit the switch as soon as the thumping begins.
