Texas Radio Shortwave returns its Janis Joplin Live program to the vault after this weekend, and who knows when they’ll take it out again.
The last two chances to listen are on Sunday, October 24: 0100 UTC, 5950 kHz, on WRMI, and at 0200 UTC, 6160 kHz, on WBCQ.
Joplin was born in Port Arthur, Texas, in 1943 and rose to fame when she performed with Big Brother & The Holding Company at the Monterrey Pop Festival in 1967. She died in Hollywood of an accidental heroin overdose in 1970 at age 27.
Texas Radio Shortwave will offer a special two-panel eQSL for correct reception reports covering at least 20 minutes of the broadcast. In addition to song titles and approximate text of announcements, reports should contain comments on the program content.
Reports should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
