Good stuff. Reminds me of my youth in DC. Been out in Indonesia 22 years now. Hello to all users of Thinking Radio, the only place I ever heard any of my Sun Ra collection broadcast.

We listen to Hober Radio in our Dilbert-esque cubicles at Boeing in Seattle. We used to be boring white shirt and tie engineers before we tuned in and turned on to Hober Radio! We're nervous and scared, living out here on the edge, but we like the feeling!

Listening from the "Rooftop of the World",
Hober Field Recorder, Ibrik O'Neil, talks with Tibetan writer, Tsering Dondrup.

JoAnne, who is a Kindergarten teacher, listens to HOBER from her little house on 2 acres about 15 miles west of Baltimore. She's always loved all kinds of music, sings and plays the guitar - although her audience is mostly her Kindergarten class!. Whenever her husband or daughter boot up the computer, their first question is usually "Why do you keep these speakers turned up so LOUD!!??"
