Launch of the digital version of the Amsterdam Radio Collection (1991) Amsterdam, September 2016 By Geert Lovink and Bart Schut We’re proud to present a sample of the Amsterdam free radio sounds from the early 1990s. It is a collection of audio cassettes, compiled in 1991, which we’ve digitized. The background of this audio collection is the following.

U.S. pirate radio station KVHF recorded on 6,420 kHz (42-meter band) beginning at 0615 UTC on 9 November 1980 in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Only a few minutes of the recording could be recovered because of the poor physical condition of the original cassette tape. This station was later "busted" by the Federal Communication Commission, at which time its location was revealed to be in California. This made KVHF one of only a handful of "free radio" stations that have operated on...

Radio Clandestine was known for using frequencies inside the regular shortwave broadcasting bands, unlike other...

Off-air recordings of various shortwave pirate radio broadcasts as heard from my home in Texas since 2007. Mostly North American free/pirate shortwave radio broadcasts, I do occasionally snag a European station when conditions are favorable. Most were recorded using a direct line-out connection from a Palstar R30C receiver to a computer, using a shielded audio patch cord fitted with simple ferrite chokes to control the hum/buzzing noise that sometimes occurs with direct connections between a...

CoolAM Radio - Mick Martin's - Blues Party!
Topics: CoolAM Radio, Free Radio, Pirate Radio, Blues Party
The 2010s was a time of great ambivalence and disillusionment when it came to me and broadcast radio. Yeah, it's true. My love of radio sort of ended around 2008 or so, and about midway through the ensuing decade (by the time Iheartradio was taking form and becoming aggressive) my interest in local radio was dead. Although great technological advances were being made in broadcasting during this time, I didn't really care very much since we were watching local radio turning into something...
