The Peanuts Gang Part 15 Christmas

I am pleasantly surprised during The Stuph Files episode 383 from this week.. Peter Anthony Holder presents a good one.. Well, they are all good ones, but this one is different than his usual 'news and comment' theme.
(The Stuph Files is one of the free-to-air sources for part 15 stations featured in our listings at right).

It's not his regular type programming during this hour, he instead features a program his two sons had created (or was it his nephews?) ,  whichever... anyway, in his introduction I think he says they had produced and recorded it years prior, when they were very young.. they are obviously children announcing the songs.. but the point is they had done a really good job putting it all together, and it's an entertaining listen.

The Stuph Files, Episode #383:

It is easy to visualize that you're you might actually be listening to the Peanuts gang with their own little radio station, at least that's the way it struck me, so I'm taking the liberty of calling this show "A Charlie Brown Part 15 Christmas" - Although I doubt that was the intention, Holder actually titles this episode as "The Meshach & Malik Christmas Show", but if you play this hour you'll understand why I say that.

I highly suggest you schedule this hour into your holiday broadcast each year.

Part 15 KCHUNG featured on Radio Survivor podcast

Radio Survivor posted a new podcast today, in which they focus on a part 15 AM station that has been around awhile, and many of us already know, or have at least heard of.. KCHUNG.

Radio Survivor's general focus is usually more of a resource for licensed broadcasters, with discussions and pointers on improving those operations.. However, in the case of this podcast, they dedicated the first 35 minutes of the program specifically to the Part 15 operations of KCHUNG radio;
In this episode Radio Survivor accurately explain (briefly) the legalities and capabilities of Part 15 (and even clarify the actualities of the so called "200ft limitation rule"), with the particular focus on KCHUNG, and express both amusement and fascination concerning the stations workings and operations.
Interviews and sound clips are featured.
It is a positive presentation for Part 15 broadcasting.

Podcast #74 – Radio Anarchy vs Order
"Jennifer Waits brings us the voices of three programmers at a mysterious and chaotic community station with deep connections to the Los Angeles art scene. KCHUNG is an unlicensed part 15 AM radio station with about 40 station managers and extremely eclectic programming.
Paul Riismandel wrote a series of articles, offering strongly worded advice for struggling community radio stations. He lays out his arguments in detail on the podcast and discusses the ideas and issues with his co-hosts..."
