Believe it or not, McMurdo Station has its own radio station – 104.5 FM Ice Radio. The station broadcasts with 50 watts around the McMurdo Area, and is able to be heard as far away as Williams Field and Pegasus Airstrip. Additionally, the station is broadcast locally on an AFRTS TV channel.

This evening, I had the opportunity to man the station and bring my radio show, “The Acid Lounge”, back to the airwaves. Here’s a recording of the show, originally broadcast 2014-12-26 on 104.5 FM Ice Radio from McMurdo Station, Antarctica. Notably, the music selection is limited to what’s available on-site, which has been cleared for broadcast. The collection exists on CD, Vinyl, and digitally in a broadcast specific computer system. It seems like the library was last updated a number of years ago, but I still had fun rediscovering some old classics.

Dead Prez – Hip Hop
Notorious Big – Juicy
Outkast – Ms. Jackson
Busta Rhymes – Dangerous
Lauryn Hill – Doo Wop
Jay Z – Change Clothes
Lil Kim – Magic Stick
Wu-Tang – CREAM
