tent. BBC Jersey??

Post by PFM907 »

this afternoon, during this enormous opening towards Sth/West. France and Nth.Spain I suddenly observed an english language station on 89.6fm with the following content:

...fading in with the instrumental outro of oldies music (guitar sounds like Tom Petty)
(no name of the station was mentioned)

presenter:
"Tim Smith is on the end of the line here and I'm ear (here?) euuh...
I did phone Tim up last night just to briefly tell him...
but JAWS was on, the original JAWS and I tell you
what I wanted to tell you...
what...in the end you went to bed!
you didn`t watch it `coz you`ve seen it how many times??
"

man calling in:
"I think i`ve seen it about 47 times...not always all the way thru...."

fading out.
the reception took like 30 secs. or so

Am I right this is "LES PLATONS / CHANNEL ISLAND JERSEY" tx. with strong directional antenna pattern?
woild be 790 watts.
opening angle was 248 degrees
Brest France was also logged a few moments later.

which UK tv channel had JAWS on last night??? Tim Smith is a Radio Two host!!

It was the Janice Long show on BBC R Wales, it was on this evening, I was listening on DAB and I kept thinking 'I've heard this before'
You can listen again on Sounds
How it got on 89.6 I can't imagine, there isn't a R Wales allocation

Nor can I explain why you heard it in the afternoon.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000jphq
starts around 1:45
Tim Lovejoy was calling in from his bedroom in Brighton btw and he mentioned that he started out as a pirate DJ

Maybe a completely different interview...

Sorry, it wAS Dave Pierce who was being chatted to
Don't know why I started on this, sorry, I only came here to see what I'd missed on OIRT, nothing apparently, and I checked the band several times today
