Kagnew Station Patch

Kagnew Station
Audio Page

You probably thought you'd never again hear the sounds of AFRS coming through your speakers, but this page will prove you wrong. Dean Tiernan and Rick Glasby have provided the initial clips and I hope to come up with more soon as this page grows.

At this point, all files are in mp3 format which can be played through most computer audio programs. I will attempt to give you a brief description of the clip, the filesize, the running time and a link to the file. I would recommend you download the files to your hard drive and play them from there as the response will be much quicker. I will also provide a link to a zip file which will contain clips in the second group. Unfortunately, the zip file doesn't reduce the overall filesize but it will allow you to get all the clips in one download.

New!Skip Alexander has sent in a 15-second MP3 sound bite from Aug 3 1964 at about 3:00 am in the morning. He says he is going to send more so keep checking back......

Sound Bite 1

Sound Bite 2 (Recorded from the Wednesday evening Record Rack Show with Brian Woodworth, the engineer was Skip (?) maybe you can catch it. The intro is "Wild Weekend," I think by the Rebels.)

Updated 9/30/13 - Gene Barlow let me know the engineer was Skip Hessa, who was a dependent teenager at the time. He says Skip was shot in the arm in a Shifta incident while hunting in about 1961. He later contracted an infection while on a tour with the USAF in Thailand, was transported to Okinawa where he died of that infection in November 1969.

This group of files are promos for AFRS by the "Kagnew singers."
