The announcement on RTI's Web page shows a photo of the two Ampegon 2 x

Rather the German service will use 315 and 325 degrees older fixed 4 x 4
curtain antennas as before.

Thursday, June 16 2022



WRMI broadcasts three new one-hour TRSW shows on 5950 kHz, beginning at 2300 UTC on Saturday, June 18, and ending at 0200 UTC on Sunday, June 19.

The shows are two episodes of the old-time radio thriller Suspense, an hour of Reggae music by Texas musicians, and a one-hour celebration of Juneteenth, June 19, 1865, when Texas slaves learned they'd been freed.

TRSW has an eQSL for each show, available for an emailed reception report covering at least 20 minutes of the show, sent to texasradiosw@gmail.com.


Suspense (2300 UTC, Saturday, June 18) 

Suspense was a radio series broadcast on CBS from 1942 through 1962.  One of the great radio shows of the Golden Age of Radio, Suspense, was subtitled "radio's outstanding theater of thrills." The show usually featured leading Hollywood actors of the era.  

The digitally restored shows are from August and June 1942.


Texas Reggae (0000 UTC, Sunday, June 19)

While researching the songs, we learned the groups had some native Texans, but many members were from parts of the US where reggae's more prevalent than in Texas.  These artists are now headquartered in Texas, so we're claiming them for this program.  

The reggae genre's much like rock or country or soul.  While there are songs we might think are pure reggae, most reggae artists don't confine their music to one style.  You'll hear that variety in the tunes we'll play.

The reggae genre's much like rock or country or soul.  While there are songs we might think are pure reggae, most reggae artists don't confine their music to one style.  You'll hear that variety in the tunes we'll play., so we're claiming them for this program.  

Here's the list of featured artists:
Audic Empire (Feat. Collin Gee)
Bum Lucky
Burning Slow
Dem Roots Music
Lion Heights
Roots From The Clay
Sharac Band
Smokey James & The Mau Mau Chaplains


Juneteenth (0100 UTC, Sunday, June 19)

This broadcast commemorates June 19, 1865, when slaves in Texas learned they'd been freed by Abraham Lincoln two and a half years earlier, in 1862.

The show features music by African-American composers.  Some of the music is performed by the artists who wrote the songs.  Other music is performed by orchestras because that's what the music was written for.

This program is a departure from the usual Texas Radio Shortwave fare because the music's not confined to Texas performers, nor are the songs about Texas.

Featured composers are:

Duke Ellington
Earth Wind & Fire (Feat. Ramsey Lewis)
Florence B. Price, Composer (Perf. by New Black Repertory Ensemble)
Jessie Montgomery, Composer (Perf. by Washington Heights Chamber Orchestra)
Margaret Bonds, Composer (Unknown Perf.)
Nina Simone
Scott Joplin
Stevie Wonder
The Sun Ra Arkestra
William Grant Still, Composer (Unknown Perf.).

If you can - send a small contribution to help Encore keep going.
There is a PayPal donation button on the homepage of the website - www.tumbril.co.uk - which folks can use if they want to. If PayPal is no good for you then send me an email and we'll sort something else out.
Thank you.
A big thanks to the folks who have donated already.
This week's Programme - First broadcast this coming Saturday on Channel 292 - starts with several movements from a Telemann horn concerto, then some of Mozart's Piano Concerto in G Major, followed by three songs from Schubert's song cycle Die Schöne Müllerin.
The second half of the programme is a Chopin Ballade and part of Beethoven's symphony No. 3
Channel 292 can be pulled live off the internet if the reception is poor in your location. Easy to find their site with a google search.
