About Ghost Radio

Ghost Radio CD One

Psychic Signal.

KMJR Radio broadcasts only at night, each broadcast ending precisely at dawn every single day of the year. There are no commercials, announcements, or regular news programs, only the sweet rituals of poem, song, and story.

“It comes in from Canada on the skip.”

“No, no, no. It comes out of the Arizona desert.”

“I heard it when I was driving through Albuquerque.”

“My brother says he heard it in Helsinki once.”

Nobody really knows where the station is broadcast from. People driving through Texas, Arizona, and many other states and foreign countries have picked it up as a faint signal. Others claim it is in a sacred corridor high on a mesa near Los Alamos.

No one here knows its exact location and everyone who hears it reports a completely different place. It’s up in the hills — It’s on the flatlands — high on a mountaintop — It’s far away in another state… This ghost signal is elusive and fades in and out like an old ’30s radio whose transformers, capacitors, tubes, lamps, and wires are wearing out. Sometimes it comes in loud and clear like a church bell. Then it is far away and DJ Mr. Mojo’s voice is but a whisper.

Officially, there is no KMJR Radio. It’s not listed or associated with any broadcaster or affiliate. You will not find it listed in any phone book. There are no identifiable businesses advertised. So, its location is unknown to everyone.

The FCC would love to know where the psychic signal emanates from and have been actively and desperately searching for more than a decade to pin down and prosecute this upstart, ethereal, pirate galleon… This Desert Radio… this Ghost Radio.

Ghost Radio is a one-hour weekly drama, which focuses on the lives and experiences of a group of “outsiders” living in a small town in New Mexico. Every day, millions of people around the world experience moments of alienation, self-doubt, and emotional trauma. Each has a different story, a different background, and a different set of circumstances in their lives which offer nearly infinite potential outcomes to their crises. As some people experience these ‘turning points”, by the influences of the quasi-scientifically measurable, quasi-supernatural vortices found in the New Mexican desert, they are drawn to experience their “moment of truth” in the village of Sundog, New Mexico, home of the pirate (unlicensed) radio station KMJR 1243 and a ragtag contingent of strange, almost mystical people who play a role in the transformation of visitors as they, by whatever twist of fate, pass through.
