"Moon Bounce" Radio Archives

Radio Frequency waves (or RF) generated here on earth have been known to travel through large holes in our planet's ionosphere, beaming endlessly
into deep space.  Scientists have confirmed that radio waves can take up to 10 years or more to reach a distant planet or cosmic object located directly
in it's path, causing these stray radio signals to bounce or reflect back to earth.  The entire process can take up to 20 years or longer.  Experts agree, the content within these received signals are extremely rare, truly fascinating and worth the wait.   

Appropriately named "Moon Bounce", this electromagnetic phenomenon is very common to Amateur Radio Operators (Hams), and was the featured storyline in the Hollywood motion picture "Frequency", starring Dennis Quaid, Andre Braugher and James Caviezel.  Prominent scientists around the
globe all agree, near perfect atmospheric conditions must first be met in order to receive these rare and exciting reflected radio waves.  Equipment must never be compromised!  You'll always need a portable radio (with batteries) and a tape recorder with blank tapes, all considered vital to successfully capture these incredible events.

After decades of experimentation, our staff of highly trained engineers have achieved direct links with several reflected radio wave sources from outer space, and have presented WackRadio.com with an audio archive containing radio broadcasts which (trust us) traveled through space, bounced off a cosmic object, and returned back to earth.

Wolfman Jack (MP3)WOLFMAN JACK ON 66 WNBC 1973 & 74 (MP3)
Signal # 1 is a combination of 2 radio broadcasts of Wolfman Jack.  Part 1 is from the summer of 1973, which leads into a show from early spring in 1974.  Unknown to the listening audience, the Wolfman traveled every other day between California and New York City to do his radio shows.  Several programs were aired live from 30 Rockefeller Plaza, while others were pre-taped for a later broadcast that week.  This audio file is the Wolfman broadcasting live, and is believed to be a couple of his rarest programs.

Frank Zappa On WPIX (Real Audio)FRANK ZAPPA ON WPIX 102 (Real Audio®) 
Nothing can be more bizarre than having FRANK ZAPPA as a Guest DJ.  Frank, along with several of his band  members, were invited to the WPIX studios in New York City to play "Disc Jockey".  Check out Frank as he does most of the station's PSA's live.  Plus, the music was, obviously Frank's choice too!  A special thanks for contacting our moon-bounce public relations department goes to Loretta Vosk, who worked for WPIX 102 back in November of 1979!  Loretta engineered the audio console for Frank, plus received a gigantic "Bear Hug" from him for doing such a great job!  Enjoy listening to this rare and exclusive moon bounce presentation!

Paul Sherman On WINS (MP3)Paul Sherman On WINS 1010 (MP3)
A truly rare and remarkable Moon Bounce file!  This show dates back to a time when WINS featured Big Bands and Standards, long before it was a Top 40 giant.  The program was called 'Reserved For Gilbert' and is hosted by Paul Sherman, better known in the radio community as "The Crown Prince Of Rock & Roll".  Paul was also credited for being Alan Freed's personal choice for fill in.  This program was sponsored by the Gilbert Hosiery Company in New York City, which aired 2 continuous hours of the finest big band recordings from the 30's.  Featured artists include Benny Goodman, Peggy Lee, Tommy Dorsey, The Pied Pipers,  Ella Fitzgerald and much more!
