DJ Johnny Silver Is Back and Online

Got an email today from Nyack NY’s own pirate DJ Johnny Silver. He says Iron Action Radio is back up for nightly broadcasts, beginning tonight both at 102.5 FM in Nyack and on-line at Shoutcast. Johnny says the broadcasts will start along the lines of 7 or 8 PM Eastern time.

I can confirm that the Shoutcast stream is up — I’m listening right now. Johnny’s on mic discussing a weblog that mentioned him, and is exploring the guy’s music and art that he’s posted. Now he’s segued into some classic hair metal: Kix’s “Cold Blood.”

Should be some interesting listening for anyone in Nyack or anyone on-line who wants to hear some actual pirate radio, rather than podcasts or other on-line shows that like to claim the mantle without any of the risk.

It seems like Iron Action Radio has been on and off all year long — understandable, since it takes dedication to run a pirate radio station by yourself every night. We’ll see how long Johnny can keep it up, and away from the FCC.
