Last Radio Playing

Sounds like some dire prediction, but no, actually it is a good radio show heard on Shortwave, WWCR-2 to be precise.  The show, at least during the weeks that I heard it, consisted of blues and other music that you likely won’t hear anywhere else.  Allan Gray, the host, also often interviews musicians and other persons of note.  I stumbled on this show a few weeks ago while listening to 12,160 KHz on Saturday afternoon. WWCR is touted as “World Wide Christian Radio” and there are many religious shows to be sure.  They also air several secular programs like World of Radio, Golden Age of Radio, DX partyline and Ask WWCR and Info Wars and others.

From reading their schedule, Last Radio Playing can be heard on WWCR-2 Tuesdays at 5pm est (5,070 KHz) , Saturdays and Sundays at 3 pm est (12,160 KHz) and on WWCR-3 at 8 pm (4,840 KHz).  WWRC is located in Nashville, TN.  They have four Continental 418 HF transmitters with a carrier power of 100 KW each.  WWCR-2 uses an azimuth of 85 degrees true and WWCR-3 uses an azimuth of 40 degrees true, both into Rhombic antennas with 14 dBi gain.

Today the show consisted of Christmas Music, which on the AM wide band receiver, sounded pretty good.  Anyway, if you are so inclined, tune in and take a listen.
