Memphis is the home of Rock n Roll and the blues and I wanted to broadcast the best Rock music available in the early '70's like Led Zepplin , Queen, and etc. I couldn't do it legally because back then I couldn't afford a FCC license and all the other red tape and hoops to jump through. So I would hide me equipment and install my antenna in my neighbors tree and broadcasted. I figured the FCC only worked 9-5 hours during the week days. So I scheduled my broadcast around their hours. During the week days I would broadcast from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. And on weekends from 7 a.m. to mid night. I could be heard all over south east Memphis and most people thought I was a legal station. My station also caught the attention of the local legal radio stations and within a couple of years I had competition. WEGR Rock 103 on the FM dial came on the scene. I remember buying my first home stereo system with the new FM dial just to listen to them. Well to make a long story short. I am no longer a pirate and work for Spacial now selling SAM Broadcaster and consulting clients new to online radio. Your generation has it easy now because of the internet. You don't have to invest a lot of money in equipment and hide antennas in trees and church steeples. lol. I wish you luck and hope you turn your talent into a life long career. I will check out your online radio too.
    Great story you have! Thank you and best of luck to you as well! And I very much agree, the Internet has made things much easier to do along the lines of radio.
