Nash Holos makes debut on shortwave

This Thursday (or Friday, depending on where you are), Nash Holos will make its international shortwave debut on Radio Miami International (WRMI), under the auspices of Taipei-based PCJ Media.

In the Americas, it will air on 9955khz (at the 31 metre band) on Friday, Feb 12, 2010 at 0200UTC (Thursday, Feb. 11 at 6 pm PST). You can also catch the live stream at http://www.wrmi.net/ .

The debut program will be a slightly modified version of the original Vancouver broadcast which aired on January 31st. For the time being, Nash Holos will air on shortwave once a month.

The shortwave world has been notified. Details here.

It's been an interesting experience for me so far! I'm enjoying becoming acquainted with the international radio scene, courtesy Keith and co. at PCJ Media.

Keith Perron is the head honcho at PCJ Media. We worked together briefly in the early days of Nash Holos at CHMB radio until he left for greener pastures in Beijing. About a year ago he revived the world's longest-running shortwave radio program, The Happy Station Show, an extremely entertaining variety show which he now hosts.

He is not Ukrainian himself (his pronunciation kind of gives him away) but has very eclectic musical tastes. He thought that since Nash Holos is delivered in English, it would be a good fit for his budding media network. The broadcast schedule is here.

Stay tuned for more developments as they occur!
