Tune in here at 8pm UK time and listen to the programme with the added bonus of the sound of radio waves bouncing off the ionosphere. If you rather listen to a clear audio version we’ve included a link to the recording of what’s going to be broadcast tomorrow which is posted up on DJ Frederick’s soundcloud for a limited period.

The hour of eclectic programming includes Weed’s very own One Deck Pete with “Soul on shortwave” at 23.53 in, Steve with Mini Indie Radio and the first episode of Justin Patrick Moore of Sothismedias’ Radiophonic Laboratory (featuring tunes by Meat Beat Manifesto, Fred Judd G2BCX and more) at 46.17.

Tune in to Radio Free Skybird via the ionosphere or the internet and as DJ Frederick says “Keep your radio free, keep your mind free and keep your spirit free.”
