Bandscan

Post by midlandsfirst » Sun Nov 25, 2012 10:19 pm

87.5 Distinct
87.9st BCMR
90.0 Very Strong carrier all day - off air now though
90.2 Fusion
92.0 Hot
94.2 Skyline
97.5st Sting
99.4 Irie

Not bad day today here...

For those who cant get BCMR - it doesnt play the general pirate fare and is very varied in style. Not quite sure what market they are aiming it at but its very 'you have no idea what is coming next'. Some songs i heard tonight were Life In A Northern Town (Dream Academy), You're So Vain (Carly Simon), Fireflies (Owl City), Footsteps Following Me (Frances Nero), Ma Baker (Boney M), Stacey's Mom (Fountains Of Wayne), You Should Be Dancing (Bee Gees), Am I The Same Girl (Swing Out Sister), Crocodile Rock (Elton John), Last Train To Clarkesville (The Monkeys). Currently playing Closer (Ne-Yo)

went to a hill called Mow Cop which is exactly on the border of staffordshire/cheshire on sunday for a pub lunch, weather must have killed reception because it used to be a good spot, wonder if the car radio is being de-sensitised by new services on the radio mast, probably

92.4 Dance Asia (had to tune to 92.5 to hear it 'cos of radio leeds)
94.2 skyline, religious service
97.5 presume the radio caroline relay in stoke, no way would sting be playing 60's stuff like sandy shaw etc, poor
90.2 very un-pirate-ish music mixing with radio 2 , assume its the stoke hobby pirate's other frq

took the scanner in the pub and heard Holland 91.4 for a few minutes @ midday ahead of another bad weather front moving through, by the time we'd eaten and gone back to the car to do the pirate scan it was P*ssing down
