harold camping never waited for the rapture.

rich heard it too!

Gives me such weird fuzzy feelings to hear Harold Camping again

Hello! I'm assuming Travelers Cheques are accepted here?

Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:06pm dale:

harold camping and werner herzog are not that far apart.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:07pm Ike:

Wasn't Camping the one who spent tons of money to put up all those billboards warning people about the end of the world and giving a specific date, and then went bankrupt when the end didn't arrive? Ahh, good ol' eschatology.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:07pm Carmichael:

I believe it was a math error, Ike.
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:08pm dale:

he forgot leap years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:08pm Smokestack:

@Ike pretty much. But it was his followers that put up all the money for that stuff. He was just the messenger. May 21, 2012 came and went... Or maybe we're all in hell right now and we didn't know it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:09pm Rich in Washington:

Say what you will about Camping, but he stood behind every one of his wrong predictions until the bitter end.

Hi Adriene. I have to pay for the luggage, I know...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:10pm Smokestack:

@Rich in WA, that's why I was so fascinated by him. He was so damn sincere and certain.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:10pm Rich in Washington:

and he was also firm in his conviction that a car was just a car, whether it had a Dodge Demon decal on it or not.
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:12pm dale:

i don't hear it. fabio is more jeff goldblumish.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:12pm Ike:

I liked that sample from Micah's show on Tuesday. Interesting mix! Scott W. did something like that once, but his was just *after* the marathon, an attempt to exorcise it. This is more timely, and I liked this mix better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:12pm Krys O.:

Good evening!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:13pm Rich in Washington:

I feel sort of guilty that towards the end of his ministry and life, I recorded one of his episodes of Family Radio and I then edited out every actual word, leaving just the ums, ers, uhs, stammers and false starts to words and sent the file to members of Negativland. It got played on Over the Edge and the following week, Camping had a stroke and had to retire from radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:13pm Krys O.:

Harold Camping used to encroach on FMU's signal back when I was listening at Upsala College in my dorm room.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:14pm Krys O.:

Rich in Washington, thank you for your service.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:15pm Rich in Washington:

He was on the radio for a very long time. I used to get him on some bad reception AM station. It would drive my coworkers bonkers, but I found his show rather hilarious. He didn't screen for prank callers very well back then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:15pm listener 126464:

Krys- this is ratso's friend, rob. we met at WnB art show. do you have a ticket for meat puppets at monty hall by any chance?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:16pm listener 126464:

me and somebody who was at 1985 show at the jetty will be there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:16pm Krys O.:

Hey, Rob 126464, sadly I can't make it to the Meat Puppets show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:17pm listener 126464:

we'll tell them you said hi!
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:19pm TDK60:

Adriene, is there shortwave listening in your past?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:24pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Good evening, mind-controlled tourists.
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:25pm ultradamno:

The cruise
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:25pm Krys O.:

I fondly recall listening to shortwave radio with my dad on the Grundig 1060 that he brought over when the family emigrated in the 1950s. It was fascinating spinning the dials. I adore Adriene's show immensely and it's one of my favorites.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:28pm tom from Glasgow:

i cannot sneer at eschatologists simply because, one day, one of them will be right
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:28pm tom from Glasgow:

nice show, this! really enjoying it
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:29pm dale:

most of shortwave is borther stair or in spanish. the cuban numbers lady is a fun catch, ham operators on sideband and a few shows on wbcq and some good jazz on radio havana cuba.
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:30pm northguineahills:

When I lived in Japan, I had a shortwave radio as a kid, I spent my nights before bed surfing the radio waves from around the world. There was actually standard American pop programming from one station in Alaska that came in clear.
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:30pm dale:

bbc stopped to the americas a long time ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:31pm tom from Glasgow:

BBC still maintains a couple of LW stations but not many
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:32pm TDK60:

...used to surf the shortwave, late 1980s into '90s.
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:33pm northguineahills:

My wife now has my shortwave radio boombox. (I got my shortwave at age 10 in '86, and never stopped using it.
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:34pm dale:

you can go online and remotely control and listen to sdr (software defined radio) receivers in europe and see the activity viewed as a waterfall screen. you can hear european longwave like that.
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:34pm dale:

www.websdr.org
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:34pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I came across a kids' book one time about a youngster living somewhere in central Asia. A poor family; one night, the father came home not with food, but a huge map of the world. They were angry for going hungry that night, but the boy would sit and stare at the map and imagine what the faraway countries were like. It changed his life, he said later. Unfortunately, I don't recall the author or the book's title.

“There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”

Good ol' little face slow tongue, they called hime.
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:41pm TDK60:

dale, that websdr.org is Long Wave radio? internet radio? both?
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:44pm TDK60:

don't think I've ever heard LW.
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:47pm TDK60:

Notable that there have been various radio worlds: AM, the various kinds of FM, SW, LW, ham radio, CB, pirate radio, LPFM, satellite. Internet changed it all.
  Thu. 3/7/19 6:50pm ike:

Awesome!
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:51pm TDK60:

Micah, do you wear a hoody to keep a low profile in public? Cults and all that, y'know.
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:51pm dale:

shortwave, broadcast band, longwave.
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:52pm dale:

tdk - the one i usually play with is the first one from the netherlands. some of the others are at servers where the bandwidth doesn't allow a lot of users.
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:53pm dale:

longwave is just radio. nothing special.
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:55pm TDK60:

..there's someone who compiles a weekly shortwave radio report; I think it's called that or similar.
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:58pm TDK60:

that report: www.outfarpress.com...
Avatar Thu. 3/7/19 6:58pm TDK60:

..thanks Adriene & Micah, what a show...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/19 6:59pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
