Bill Dernoff writes that one of his favorite programs is Money Talks on Deutsche Welle. He says for the month of May they are going to focus on appropriate ways to offer and accept bribes. Several corporate executives with extensive experience in bribing Third World political leaders will be featured on the show. Rumors are that our own Bill Kyle is one of them. Way to go, Bill!
Beginning in March, WEWN's Sunday morning mass at 1300-1400 is now broadcast from Our Lady of the Synchronous Detector Church in Reynoldsburg, Ohio. They are putting some serious effort into reaching DXers. Perhaps this has something to do with that recent survey by MULE (Minnesota Union of Listening Enthusiasts) that named Pagan Voice Radio as the most popular religious station among DXers. But, how could you not like a religious broadcaster that tells you your DXing will improve if you go the woods, take off your clothes, and sacrifice small hairy rodents on a stone altar? It may or may not work, but it is a lot more fun than going to confession!
Contrary to reports last month, Radio Australia's program Hindsight will NOT be issuing its own QSLs. Probably all for the better.
