Middle Eastern And Ecuadorian Music (Circa 1976-1978)

Many thanks to SRAA contributor, Greg Shoom, for this recording of Middle Eastern and Ecuadorian Music from the late 1970's

Greg comments:

"Recorded from shortwave radio stations around 1976-1978 in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. The Ecuadorian music is from radio station HCJB in Quito, Ecuador. I am not sure of the origin of the middle eastern music, but I think it might be from the Voice of Iran."

Ecuadorian Music circa 1976-1978

Many thanks to SRAA contributor, Greg Shoom, for this recording of music from the late 1970s. Greg describes the recording:

"This is a compilation of Ecuadorian and perhaps other South American music recorded on shortwave in the late 1970s (1976-1978 time-frame I think). Mostly from HCJB in Quito, Ecuador. I listened regularly to their DX Partyline program back then, and they usually included one piece of Ecuadorian music on each episode. I think most of these songs come from there. Sorry that I don't have any record of station IDs, song titles, dates, times, or frequencies for this recording."
