``Radio Curious: Long Form Interviews About Life and Ideas -- Welcome
to the 28th year of Radio Curious, now proudly part of the Library of
Congress, and broadcast weekly on approximately 85 radio stations.

Here you will find over 700 half hour interviews on a curiously wide
array of topics concerning life and ideas. These programs are a gift
to you from Radio Curious host and producer Barry Vogel. He started
Radio Curious in 1991, to expand the work he began in 1974 as an
Attorney, Counselor and Mediator in Ukiah, California, the Mendocino
County seat, located about 110 miles north of San Francisco,
California.

THIS WEEK’S INTERVIEW: My guest in this program is Wesley Swearingen.
Agents at the Federal Bureau of Investigation have a history of
illegal break-ins to homes and offices and conducting wiretaps without
a search warrant. In the years when J. Edgar Hoover was the Director
of the F.B.I., these warrantless break-ins came to be known as
“black-bag jobs”. This archive edition of Radio Curious is a December
1995 interview with Wesley Swearingen a former F.B.I. agent, who in
1995 wrote “FBI Secrets: An Agent’s Expose.”

All programs are free for anyone to enjoy, download, copy, share or

WOMAN ARRESTED IN CONNECTION TO DEADLY ATTEMPTED COPPER THEFT AT RADIO
TOWER --- Angie West [portrait = mugshot]

SAND SPRINGS, Okla. – A woman was arrested in connection to a
suspected copper theft at a radio station’s transmitter site in
northeast Oklahoma that left one person dead and another in critical
condition.

Just before 10 a.m. Sunday, authorities with the Tulsa County
Sheriff’s Office were called to the KRMG AM transmitter site in Sand
Springs. According to the Tulsa World, an engineer checked on an
interrupted signal and found one man dead with wire pliers in his hand
and another man severely burned, convulsing on the ground.

KRMG reports the injured man was taken to the hospital in critical
condition. Officials have not yet identified the man who died.

The Tulsa World reports 37-year-old Angie West was arrested in
connection to the incident. She reportedly told deputies she had taken
the men to the area to take copper around midnight. She says she fell
asleep in the car and when she woke up, she left. West was arrested
and booked into the Tulsa County jail on a complaint of first-degree
murder.

CMG Tulsa Market Vice President Cathy Gunther released a statement
following the incident.

“Early this morning two individuals broke into the KRMG AM transmitter
site. It appears they attempted to access a building through a conduit
and were electrocuted. One of the individuals is deceased and one was
transported to the hospital. From the tools and materials found at the
site, it appears that they were attempting to steal copper. The safety
of our community is of utmost importance – please do not enter any
transmitter site, for any reason, as the area is extremely dangerous”

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1993 monitoring: confirmed Monday August 5

cut on at *1814 (see IRELAND [non]), 1815 theme ``Triumphal March from

** U S A [and non]. Here`s a great example of how regular bandscanning
can pay off: Despite my local high line noise level (which OG&E blames
on Suddenlink sharing the same poles, waiting for Suddenlink to
remedy), Aug 5 at 1906 I`m running thru the 7 MHz band with BFO for
any signal traces, even at a daypart when nothing would be expected
even without the noise --- and there *is* a JBA carrier on 7505, which
has got to be WRNO, far outside its nominal schedule, 01-04 UT
sometimes, and even outside its registered availability between 22 and
16! Fades up a bit with music, gospel, but cuts off abruptly at 1913*,
a test? Back on at *1917:55 with open carrier; At 1925:45 the gospel
music suddenly surges at S9+10, but that is because my HNL has
unexpectedly cut off temporarily. At 1927, 7505 is gone again. Recheck
at 2141, S9+10 HNL is back on and no WRNO.

While the HNL is off I quickly scan the 49mb, at 1925 and find JBA
carriers just where expected at midday from the NAFTA daytime trio:
6185 XEPPM, 6070- CFRX, and 5950 WRMI! (but no 6160v WBCQ)

Furthermore there is a propagation disturbance in progress, making
most of the SW bands almost dead, even above the noise level boundary
worse below 9 MHz: only decent signals circa 1924 being 12160 and
13845 WWCRs; with 9475 WTWW very poor. WWV reported at 1800:

``Solar flux 67 and estimated planetary A-index 4.
The estimated planetary K-index at 1800 UTC on 05 August was 5.
Space weather for the past 24 hours has been minor.
Geomagnetic storms reaching the G1 level occurred.``

Quick check next day Aug 6 at 1837 finds the HNL buzzing of S9 to
S9+10 on most frequencies below 8.8 MHz, with a few gaps (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

NEW TUCSON RADIO VENTURE TARGETS OLDER 'LOST AUDIENCE'
By Cathalena E. Burch Arizona Daily Star Aug 5, 2019 Updated 1 hr
ago

Tucson radio will welcome a new station today that features some
familiar voices.

This morning, 101.7-FM and 830-AM will go live as KDRI The Drive, a
Tucson-focused music and entertainment station targeting listeners
between the ages of 45 to 64.

Owners Fletcher McCusker, Bobby Rich and Jim Arnold say those are the
listeners that have long been neglected not only in Tucson but
nationwide by corporate-owned radio that focuses on the 25-to-40
segment.

“We kind of view them as a lost audience,” said longtime Tucson
business titan and community activist McCusker, the only one among the
trio who doesn’t have an extensive radio or broadcast background.
McCusker’s only foray into radio was a short stint at KWFM — he was
the underground rock station’s first hire — when he was 19 in the late
1960s.

The trio closed last week on the $ 650,000 purchase of the radio
frequencies that had been home to Christian broadcaster Family Life.
The Drive will play a mix of music from the 1960s through the ’80s and
beyond that they say will appeal to an audience that identifies as
baby boomers, Rich said.

“It’s not classic rock. It’s not golden oldies. But it’s going to be
unique, programmed by Bobby Rich,” McCusker said. “His library right
now is 3,000 songs, so you could literally go weeks without hearing
the same songs.”

When pressed for a clearer definition of the format, Rich would only
say that he planned to “present on The Drive something that
(listeners) will be comfortable with and familiar with and will give
them something that they want, which is information and
entertainment.”

On Thursday, Tucson Radio began playing nonstop novelty songs,
including “Camp Granada” and “Purple People Eater” under the name “The
Worm.” On Monday morning, it switches gears as The Drive with Rich and
Hill Bailey, most recently of KHYT 107.5-FM, in the morning driver’s
seat. . .

Glenn: That will explain what you heard on 830 kHz, via your E/W wire.
(-- via GREG HARDISON, CA, August 5, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Which I assumed to be WUMY Memphis, ruling out Tucson due to its
religious format, but now replaced.

FCC AM Query already has 830 as KDRI, 50/1 kW, Direxional night only,
ex-KFLT really since 7/31. It had been KFLT more than 33 years.
Monthly Local Sunset Times:
August 7:15 [0215 UT]
September 6:30 [0130 UT]
Sunrise times MST:
August 5:45 [1245 UT]
September 6:00 [1300 UT]
FCC pattern maps are Not Found! But NRC Pattern Book VIII of 2013
shows it tight toward the SSE, no good here.

I try for KDRI again Aug 6 at 0210 UT before LSS, but hear only a
bigsig from a WCCO SBG on 830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 880, Aug 6 at 0613 UT, hymns are being heard underneath
JimBo from KRVN Nebraska. First thought would be KHAC, Tse Bonito NM,
the make-the-Navajos-Christian station next to Window Rock AZ, but the
music is on DSB, not USB only as KHAC transmits. Is KLRG Sheridan AR
active or not? Was REL, could be on 220 W night power. It was silent
as of 5/2018 per NRC AM Log published last August. See another
discussion of this situation in DXLD 19-06. At 0630 I hear a jingle
reminding me of REE Spain? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9580, August 5 at 0135, CRI relay is S9+20/30 but
undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. 9570 Albania
relay is still OFF (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9640, UT Monday August 5 at 0136, RHC `En Contacto` is
starting, undermodulated but sufficient, also on 11760. Arnie opens
with info that the average sunspot number in July was only 0.9.
Recheck at 0145, Pepe Bueno in Spain is concluding his monthly DX
report on behalf of AER, giving the schedule of Radio CANDIP, Congo DR
on 5066! Don`t you believe it. This station has been inactive for at
least two years. He is probably relying on ``A-19`` schedule info in
the June issue of El Dial-E:

``CONGO DEM.REP. Radio CANDIP Bunia: •
0300-0700 5066vBUN 001 kW / non-dir COD French •
1300-1900 5066vBUN 001 kW / non-dir COD French 5066v=5066,4``

Followed there immediately by another imaginary station long-gone:
``DJIBOUTI Radio Djibouti: • 0300-2200 4780 DBT 050 kW / non-dir EaAf
French/Arabic/Afar``

``B-18 schedules of African Stations`` also from AER were quoted in
Rus-DX of 20 January 2019, not only these but obviously(???) deleted
stations: Chad 6165, Malabo 6250, Hargeisa 7120, Uganda 4976 and
4750!

Last real log of CANDIP we had was from ****2017****, DXLD 17-14:

``CONGO DR. Also R. Candip better than before on 5066.4 till just
after 2000, and also stronger than usual (Thorsten Hallmann, Germany,
March 30, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST)``

I try not to critique fellow DX program presenters despite hearing
erroneous info, but just can`t let this one pass. Some of them I
deliberately do not listen to, so can avoid such conflicts. But:
something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. In last report as I was lamenting KROU/KGOU`s lack of
reception in Enid, you may wonder how then I was quoting it on KWOU:
the cited 88.1 KWOU relay of KGOU via Woodward is extremely marginal,
sometimes audible with a little morning tropo, often barely or blocked
by KMSI Moore; and/or rapid choppy peaks in Doppler fading reflected
via Vance airplane scatter, which are always buzzing over Enid
especially in morning flight training (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DXLD)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1993 monitoring: not confirmed but
presumed still there, Sunday August 4 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, JBA
carrier vs HNL totaling S9+10.

Confirmed UT Monday August 5 at 0130 on WRMI 9955, VG S9+20 following
0129 ID for ``Son-Power Radio from studios of WRMI on 5850, 7455
[abandoned years ago], 9395``. While // 7780 is S9+10 in high noise
level.

Also confirmed UT Monday August 5 at 0258 just in time, the 0230 on
WRMI 7780, very poor.

Also confirmed UT Monday August 5 at 0259 on Area 51 webcast, already
in progress during first item about Andorra [non] so started about 3
minutes early. WBCQ 5130.3v JBA at 0327 check when HRI has already
started; no trace vs HNL now nor earlier this evening of 6160v, unlike
last week.

Also confirmed UT Monday August 5 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, VG S9+10/20,
following some scary music fill at 0328 and soothing music at 0329.

** U S A. 830, August 5 at 0149 UT on E-W longwire, no WCCO, but a
station playing novelty tune, but modulation keeps cutting out, for
variable intervals such as on for 22 seconds, off for 5, on for 24,
off for 8, etc., etc. 0156 UT, ``Happy Trails to You``, barbershop
performance, maybe for a sign-off? No, then ``Fish Heads``, but this
is not Dr. Demento; Of course fades out around hourtop; 0202 UT
another novelty song with cutouts.

On the DX-398 it`s hard to DF, best audible with a slow SAH circa 1 Hz
in WCCO null which is ESE/WNW, but seems to peak a bit CCW from there,
i.e. close to E-W. I don`t see how this could be anything but WUMY
Memphis TN (address in Southaven MS suburb), which last year`s NRC AM
Log shows as: a 3 kW daytimer, but CP for U1 8 kW day, 2 WATTS night,
classic hits format in $ tereo; and of course this is way after sunset
which in August is officially 0045 UT. Also FCC AM Query no longer
shows any such CP, just daytimer license to GMF-Christian Media I LLC
[sic] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. BURT WOLF --- TRAVELS & TRADITIONS is an excellent program,
available here only once a week on OETA, Sundays at 2100-2128 UT. It`s
not just a travelogue but deals with a different subject each week. In
current Season 18, two of particular relevance here:

Short Guide To Cell Phone Safety

Description: Burt takes a quick look at the history of communication
from the cavemen to the alphorn, to the telephone and finally the
cellphone. He traces how the cellphone has changed his work and family
life as he travels around the world. He also tracks down a series of
stories in the United States and Europe that suggests that the
cellphone may not be as safe as most of us thought. He meets with
experts in England, Italy, France and the United States to find out
how we can deal with the problems that are emerging. And finally, Burt
follows an Apple developer's conference where they are working on apps
to limit your use of their own products.

** OKLAHOMA. 88.1, Aug 4 at 1339 UT, caught the tail of a KGOU
Manager`s Minute via KWOU Woodward about some KROU upgrade. To website
for text, and while we are at it, a couple previous ones:

https://www.kgou.org/programs/managers-minute

``New Oklahoma City Transmitter Improves Sound
By Dick Pryor • Jul 29, 2019 KGOU --- This is the Manager’s Minute.

We’re pleased to announce installation is complete on the new KROU
transmitter, located on the Spencer/Oklahoma City tower that we lease
from our friends at KFOR Television.

We did this thanks to grant funding from the Anne & Henry Zarrow
Foundation and gifts to Karen’s Legacy Fund, in honor of former KGOU
general manager Karen Holp.

People who listen to KGOU on 105.7 will notice improved audio quality
and a more reliable signal.

The old transmitter, which served us since 1992, is now a backup.

KGOU's "Worldwide Transmitter"
By Dick Pryor • Jul 14, 2019 --- This is the Manager’s Minute.

KGOU broadcasts from five full power transmitters and four
translators, but we also serve listeners through our “worldwide
transmitter”: http://www.kgou.org

On our website, you can find news stories and resources, community
events, streaming audio, weather, the program schedule and information
about our programs.

You can donate online, and also find staff bios, station history,
awards, and job opportunities.

A New Look and a New Sound • May 6, 2019 Manager's Minute
Listen 0:59 === KGOU has a new look; Morning Edition has a new sound

This is the Manager’s Minute. Consistency is one of the most important
attributes of a successful organization. As broadcasters, we know our
listeners expect us to be consistently good and reliable, but also
willing to innovate and change.

This week NPR’s Morning Edition has a new sound. It’s a fresh take on
the traditional Morning Edition theme - warm, engaging, energetic and
modern. The new theme music was inspired by the work of BJ Leiderman
and is designed to be as engaging and ear-catching as possible to
reflect Morning Edition's dynamic mix of engaging, informative and
often surprising stories about today's world.

Also, we’ve freshened KGOU’s brand image. Our previous logo served us
well for 15 years, but now KGOU has a new look that you'll be seeing
online, on social media, in our newsletters and in our business and
promotional materials.

Designed by KGOU listener J.D. Reeves, our new logo is clean, bold and
smart, with a distinctive shape and the hint of a retro feel.

We think it communicates strength, stability and creativity. And, of
course, it reminds everyone KGOU is still Your NPR Source.

Take a look online and email manager@kgou.org to let us know what our
new KGOU logo says to you. Until next time, with the Manager’s Minute,
I’m Dick Pryor.``

Well, I miss the old Morning Edition sound. As for KROU, it`s still
licensed for only 1.6 kW ERP, and impossible in Enid next to local
105.5 translator, not to mention stronger Alva on 105.7; however, we
do get KROU on caradio not too far east or south from Enid, which
remains a larger OKcity with no local public radio signal, unlike many
smaller towns with translators or satellites of KGOU or KUCO. After
expressing some interest in serving 50K Enid, when I greeted him as
new GM, he later said it was not going to happen. So we are stuck with
KOSU only at non-local strength, iffy to receive inside buildings
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, DXLD)

** U K [and non]. 12005, Aug 4 at 1757, VP signal in SW Asian
language, 1800 time pips a few sex late, and more. Aoki shows first
it`s Radio Farda at 1300-1800 via Woofferton; but then BBC in French
via ASCENSION - I did not note any site or language switch, it was so
poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1993 monitoring: Not confirmed Sat
August 3 before 1500 on HLR GERMANY, 9485-CUSB via UTwente SDR: as
usual, nothing except huge splash from 9490 Romania. But Alan Gale,
England reports at 1454:

``Hi Glenn, No luck hearing World of Radio on 9485 kHz here again
today, but I decided to check out a few webSDRs and see if I could
find it. Most just showed the loud signal on 9490 with the exception
of this one in Finland, I could hear you on there at 1450 UT, not
great, but definitely recognisable:
http://sdr.vy.fi/

The SDRs to the south, even the ones in Germany, seem to be dominated
by the Romanian station, but thankfully this one at least picks up
something. Alan``

And at 1504: ``Hi Glenn, Thought I'd check out a few more of the
Scandinavian webSDRs; this one is run by OH5AE and has you readable, a
short mp3 is attached. Still lots of splatter, but much better. At
least we know where the signal is going to now:
http://oh5ae.dyndns.org:8073/
Alan``

WOR 1993 confirmed here Sat Aug 3 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, which was on a
few minutes earlier with IS/ID loop, but WOR joined only slightly
late, just in time to hear me say in intro ``1993``; fair.

Also confirmed UT Sun Aug 4 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, VG S9+10/20.

Also confirmed UT Sun Aug 4 at 0340 on WA0RCR, Wentzville MO, 1860-AM,
as I am quoting Bob Biermann, about 23 minutes into, so started circa
0317; good S9+10 including noise level. Next:

*NOTE: IRRS might be missing due to transmitter shortage in Romania;
and Aussie Tim Gaynor tells us August 4:

``Unique Radio off air till further notice due to technical issues ---
Hi, Unique Radio 5045 and 3210 kHz, Gunnedah NSW, will be off air due
to several technical issues. Faults in the antenna and also a fault in
the DC power supply to the transmitter have made it necessary to go
off air for a while. These will be fixed as time permits and also will
let you know when coming back on air. WINB broadcasts as per usual and
podcasts.also continue.

** U S A. 7490.1v, UT Sun Aug 4 at 0023, WBCQ unreadable vs noise
level; also detectable on 6160.1v, but not on 5130.4v vs even higher
NL, so suspect Area 51 is missing unless it`s now Area 61 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, UT Sun Aug 4 at 0008, S9+20 YL in French on WRMI,
quelle? O, it`s RFPI as now sked this hour, allegedly also on 5950,
both emitting System G. It`s rather puzzling how some European
broadcasters would rather relay via WRMI to N America in non-English,
e.g. also Italians (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 1160, August 3 at 0612 UT, KSL Salt Lake City is
unusually weak; normally the dominant night signal, as to be expected
for a 50/50 kW U1 = non-direxional clear channel station at only ~800
miles. Now it`s bothered by SAH and some station with Mexican music.
If Unitedstatesian, besides two weak Floridians, per year-old NRC AM
Log (new one soon to be published), that could only be KCTO Cleveland
MO, 230 watts at night direxional. WRTH shows only a single possible
Mexican, 10 kW XEQIN, San Quintín BCN. IRCA Mexican Log says night
power unknown, and four other 1160s have evidently defected to FM.

Getting back to KSL, suspect it is ailing, running low power. Another
check Aug 4 at 0520 UT, music unlikely KSL, but a SAH at 168/minute =
2.8 Hz probably caused by KSL against the otherstation. KSL is
somewhat northerly; attenuated aurorally? Possibly, but similar
latitude altho closer 850 KOA Denver seems normal (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1190, August 3 at 0611 UT, Catholic talk is dominating with
some fades, as usual at night. KDMR Kansas City with EWTN is supposed
to be 500 watts direxional at night, but I suspect may be on 5000 watt
day power, and/or: KDMR night pattern has a notch at 205 degrees, but
we are somewhat beyond that, close to due SW = 225; FCC pattern map
shows major broad lobe centered about 260 degrees
