UNID on 108.0 with ID - help please

Post by Nick Gilly » 29 May 2018 23:12

This was recorded on 108.0 MHz yesterday (May 28th) during a big Es opening towards Italy:

https://app.box.com/s/04kxserd5rwg9w07ue0h3pd3ihanyo1h

The language on the first song sounds Balkan, and then there is an ID at 2 min 27 sec, followed by a YL saying "Musika!" and the next song, which sounds Italian. Is this from Italy or the Balkans?

Later on I heard Radio Scan from Albania on this frequency but that was talk, so I think this must be someone else.

Any help with this much appreciated.

Thanks.
Good DX.

here is my solution


it is Radio Studio M from Monte Vesuvio, Italy!!!

the first song is

Quanno stive cu' mme by Alessio
album: Tutto iniziò da me
label: Believe Music / Zeus Record Serie Oro

Alessio is an Neapolitano singer! this lyrics do not correspond to any translation so I think this is sung in Neapolitano language (a strong Italian dialect). The only two Italian stations from the Napels area using 108 FM are

Radio Studio Emme http://www.radiostudioemme.it/
Radio Azzurra Napoli 88.4 FM (no HP found)

there is indeed a clear ID within the recording, what I understand (phonetically) is

per me tu ...radio studio emme.. new hite




however, Albanian stations play a lot of italian music and Alessio is in fact the italian version of the name of the city of Lezhe / Lezha ;)

congrats on this high MUF log from Vesuvio volcano

Well done, PFM. :D

Only a small amendment.
The ID says: Fermati su Radio Studio Emme (and then: New Hit !)

Alessio is one of the most famous "neomelodico" singer, a genre of music that combines Neapolitan love songs and classic Neapolitan mode of singing with "modern" sounds (not so modern, en fact :D).
Usually, I can hardly understand 10% of what they are singing.

The "neomelodici" are very popular in Campania and in other Southern regions of Italy; they are used to sing in public squares, in marriages' banquets and even in Holy Communion's banquets.
On the other hand, some neomelodici are sometimes been suspected to be too close to criminal families. :shock:

sorry my Italian is not very "buon" (or bueno??) :)

I think this kind of music is an excellent indicator of the region, because no commercial AC / CHR station from Rome, Venice or Torino would play that as no one would be able to understand ?

but I can imagine, stations from the Capri area /Ischia / Sorrento do air music in Neapolitano, maybe even on Sardegna :)

Yes, it's true; you can listen neomelodici on regional and local radios in Campania (but also in Puglia, Basilicata and Calabria) but you'll never listen to it on national networs.
Sardinia is a peculiar case: they foster their own language and culture but now they have a stronger connection with Nothern and Central Italy than with Southern.

Thanks very much PFM907 and Franco. The language on the first song didn't sound Italian, and that puzzled me, as it sounded a bit Balkan to me. Interesting to know it's the regional Neapolitan dialect.

I'll amend the log.
Good DX.

Thanks I also had on 108.0 Gestiona Radio,Spain Love FM and Radio Maria,Italy Signals were better at top of band than the lower end as this was mostly mushy soup.
