CAFO Effluence On the Air
(CAFO=Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation)
Listening this morning to the FM station in Carolina Beach, North Carolina, while they worked out technical issues resulting from Hurricane Florence, we happened to hear a newscast from Townhall, a source previously unfamiliar to us at KDX. Curiosity pointed toward the website at [] which labels itself a "conservative" news source. The home page overflows with left bashing stories achieved through lie, deception, omission and obfuscation, pairing Townhall with the likes of Fox.

How Many Communications Channels?
During Hurricane Florence KDX has been covering the event by re-streaming the internet signal from an FM station in Willmington, North Carolina, which was relaying live coverage from a local TV station, itself also streaming on its own website and carried on cable systems.
While all this was going on we posted notice of our role in all the interactivity on a broadcast forum site and describe it now here on The Blare Blog.
Phone calls were made, Emails sent, Facebook, Twitter and Linked In notified, prayer said and in-person conversations held. Communications went out on all channels. Along the line the Willmington TV station lost its transmitter at a remote tower location which needed to be overflown by helicopter to seek a means of access through surrounding flood waters, while viewers had the option of tv cable or streaming from the station's website except where delivery to the home was cut off, leaving radio as the last channel standing. -C.Blare 180918

The Prison Strike - C.Blare 180913 5:39 PM CDT
The U.S.Constitution enables use of convicted prisoners as veritable slaves.
During time of Draft (Selective Service) is yet another form of slavery in which politicians can send soldiers involuntarily onto gunnery ranges as biological living targets with full honors at burial.

Carl's Better OnAir Shows
There may not be any "Best of Carl", but there are Better Carls and here's one of them now:
Blare OnAir August 8, 2017 titled- "Acting Lord At Large"
On this show we talk about Brooce MICRO1700 behind his back, and an intellectual property theft by a former chairman at the ALPB who took our "Acting Lord" title and used it as his own.

Now Comes a Comment - C.Blare 180913 4:18 PM CDT
On September 5th The Blare Blog posted a link to the Anonymous View from the Whitehouse Op-Ed that'd been published in the New York Times. We underscored the link with our caveat that neither KDX nor Carl Blare intended any comment per the link.
Since then we've listened to many journalists and radio hosts analyzing and responding to the item, and eventually reached our own hunch about the likely identity of the "insider" and his/her motive.
No one likes a spoiler so we'll reserve further remark as the story continues to simmer.


This story from the Polemicist is either very good journalism or it's not.
We at KDX know which it is, but will you?

Words Overboard
Spellcheck agreed with my spelling and use of "imminent", and presented many similar words including eminent, immanent, immanant and emanate, that exist to prevent vocabulary self-confidence.

Renewed Dedication to the Low Power Cause
Since 2007 KDX Worldround Radio has served the listener who built it, me of course, as a solution to poor radio programming available in  the local area. From time to time I tune the dial to be sure that the poor programming is still going, and am disappointed all over again by what is heard.
The majority of local stations broadcast religious programming which is never any different as there's so little to say about the patch-work of children's short stories that comprise religion. The rest of the programming centers on perpetual sports including numerical game statistics and intrusive gossip about the lives of adult game playing "professionals".
In the middle of the night several nationally syndicated shows specialize in small talk, last night hearing a host describe his laundry circulation based on how often he changes his socks, and the imminent appearance of the Anti Christ set in a science fiction frame.
It is therefore delightful to own a station completely under our own control that can be programmed at or above the special school level. You'd think more people would start their own transmitters.

When KDX Opened a Hush Up Department
-This is a news release from May 25, 2017-
Unwanted Programs Can Be Paid to Leave the Air
The growing number of right-wing nationalistic christian theocratic misogynist racist supremists no longer have to tolerate lefty libtard radio programming such as our skeptical, rational, intellectual, atheistic, religion scam exposing, secular, humanistic, elite classical music, scientific, factual, truthful, realism based shows as heard on KDX.
Now you can make it all go away with hush money tossed at the problem.
Contact Program Prevention Director Bent Krutz in the Hush Services Office.
KDX Hush Services is funded through a grant from the City Back-Office for Gentrification.

Coins Have Many Sides - C. Blare 180902 3:46 PM CDT
There's a stickler in all of us that wants to cast shade on other people's ideas, especially when we are right according to the laws of physics and reason.
What we ignore is that hobby radio is driven in many cases by fantasy and we do harm to the hobby if we puncture the rising balloons of inspiration stemming from the fantastic sense.
In those halcyon Knight Kit days when two glowing tubes put The Champ's "Tequila" from one room to another on the 3rd floor of the parent's house where I could watch the loudspeaker-cone shove air back and forth as Wattage drove the voice-coil, I was at the very center of the most interesting radio exhibition since Nathan B. Stubblefield sent harmonica music through the air at his farm in Kentucky around 1892.
Of course being reminded that C-QUAM remains failed and one more rock station is meaningless are useful as sanity checks, but too much sanity can be a downer, so a little fantasy now and then helps spark things up a little bit.
In my fantasy the next phone call will be from a college girl who likes older announcers.


I can't tell people to go to hell because I don't want to run into them when I go there.

The Latest Date Coming Up In a Minute
Radio stations give the current time as a normal routine but never seem to mention the day's date, which KDX is thinking about doing.
Today, for example, is estimated to be September 2 but the page hasn't been turned on the wall calendar and we're still seeing August, so it would be helpful if the date came over the radio.
As good an idea as it is, having 2nd thought, I foresee inadvertently skipping the task of updating the date, possibly putting listeners confusingly off-schedule and it would be our fault.
The idea is hereby canceled.
- Carl Blare, date withheld
