THANK YOU FOR LISTENING TO MARIE'S SHOW!

Posted by powerpopclassics on April 13, 2020 at 4:20 PM

A couple of weeks ago, my incredibly talented daughter Marie took the show over, and, according to all the feedback I have received, basically made it her own!  One very loyal listener sent us the message, "MORE MARIE AND LESS JOHN T.!"  Others were less direct, but the message was certainly received on this end!  After checking reception reports and Mixcloud statistics, it appears that Marie's show was heard by an audience of approximately FIVE TIMES our normal group!!  I am happy to report that she will sit in for me from time to time, whenever she can!  We intend to share the duties from here, and while I will still be doing most of the shows, you will never be TOO far away from another amazing guest hosting stint by MARIE!!!  Cheers,  JTMc

BUSY WITH REAL WORK AND BASKETBALL: REPEATING THE SEPT 21 SHOW!

Posted by powerpopclassics on February 7, 2020 at 11:55 AM

Based upon the craziness of my schedule these past couple of weeks, tomorrow's show will be a repeat of the September 21, 2019 show.  We will be back with an all-new episode (EPISODE 40, if you can believe that) NEXT Saturday!  Thank you for listening, and keep on smiling through the static!!

OVER-THE-AIR AIRCHECKS ON MIXCLOUD!

Posted by powerpopclassics on January 30, 2020 at 8:45 AM
Be sure to check out our Mixcloud profile (which can be accessed on our "LINKS" page) for our new feature:  OVER-THE-AIR 
AIRCHECKS!  Whenever the reception is moderate to good, we will post as many airchecks of the show as we can.  We only 
began doing so after we discovered that Mixcloud's "Digital Identifier" could track most musical selections even through
some shortwave static.  Now that the rights holders will be compensated properly through Mixcloud, we will continue to
post airchecks for the shortwave purists out there!

FINALLY! A NEW SHOW!

Posted by powerpopclassics on September 5, 2019 at 12:45 AM

Well, for those of you who haven't seen the photos on Facebook, I broke my left elbow playing tennis several weeks ago.  While I am extremely lucky that my injuries weren't worse, I am having trouble with everything that involves the use of my left hand and fingers.  Using the computer is terribly slow for me, and the act of hosting the show has been impossible until now.  While I may not be perfect on the board yet, I am broadcasting an all new show this Saturday, September 7, 2019 at 11UTC!  As I say every week, I have to keep on smiling through the static!   Cheers,  JTMc 

DON'T FORGET THE MONO SHOWS!

Posted by powerpopclassics on June 25, 2019 at 7:45 AM

Since all the shortwave broadcasts are in mono, each Mixcloud version of each show also is posted with a mono version!  

CARGOE AND HOT DOGS ON BOARD!

Posted by powerpopclassics on June 25, 2019 at 12:05 AM

Please be sure to listen to 7440 Shortwave this coming Saturday for a DOUBLE HOUR of ALT UNIVERSE TOP 40!  The double hour begins at 11:00 UTC, with the second hour beginning promptly at 12:00 UTC!  And here is a little bit of a teaser for the double bill:  Fans of the Ardent/Stax legendary bands Cargoe and The Hot Dogs will want to listen to BOTH shows.  If you do, then you will feel alright and smile another smile...right through the static!  JTM
