Oh brother, here we go again...
I’ll believe it when Dr. McCoy grips his wrist, peers at the tricorder, and looks up with that serious look on his face, “He’s dead, Jim.”
There apparently have been several reports of Castro’s death in recent years. Nothing has been confirmed.
Best radio ad, ever. :)
My father gave me a cigarette sized shortwave radio for Christmas and I was tuning around and heard Radio Habana Cuba. I got a big kick about their description of the Isle of Youth how it was renamed from the Isle of Pines. They said it was discovered by Christopher Columbus but they backtracked to the PC story of where the Indians were there first so Columbus did not really discover it. I just busted out laughing and shook my head on how they tiptoe the PC line. I keep firing up one of several SW radios I have to see if Castro is still here or went to his final reward.
I made an Obama version of this somewhere. BTW, heard Radio Habana Cuba many times. They were even on the AM band for a while and sometimes they would “walk over” WTAM (then WWWE) on 1100 kc in Cleveland (I’m near Pittsburgh). Every once in a while when I cannot pick up “Coast to Coast AM” on 104.7 FM (Quinn and Rose’s flagship station), I go to 570, WKBN out of Youngstown, OH and I hear “Radio Reloj” (Radio Clock, like Cuba’s version of CNN that broadcasts “RR” in CW (.-. .-.) in the background. In winter, sometimes they would “walk over” WKBN.
