Meghan Markle / KLSX

I came across this dumb, 1999 video of Prince Harry's future wife, Meghan Markle, spotting a Tom Leykis sticker on the back of a truck.  Watch it here.


The decal she spotted was from Los Angeles's 97.1 FM KLSX which carried a Hot Talk format from 1997 until 2009.  They were the flagship station of The Tom Leykis Show.
It took me a minute to figure out why I had two of the same sticker before I noticed a very small difference between these two decals.

日本のラジオステッカー

A reader asked if I could post some more of the Japanese radio stickers that I received back in 2013.  Here ya go!

78.9 FM Radio Bari Bari broadcasts from Imabari, Ihime Prefecture, Japan.  The station name probably comes from the city where they are located but Google says that "bari bari" can also mean "when one is full of energy" and is also an onomatopoeic word for the sound of crunching or ripping.

Kiss FM broadcasts from Kobe, Japan and is simulcast on other frequencies throughout Hyogo Prefecture.

83.5 FM originates from Takarazuka, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan.  For some reason, this sticker depicts Princess Sapphire, the lead character from the manga series Princess Knight which first appeared in print in 1953.

FM Port 79.0 broadcasts from the Sea of Japan port town of Niigata.

Pirate Radio 87.9

Pirate Radio 87.9 FM may or may not originate from Newport, Rhode Island.  They can definitely be heard on shortwave and streaming on Mixlr but it's unclear if they actually ever broadcast at 87.9 FM.  They were playing indie rock from Shellac, U.S. Maple and June of 44 while I wrote this post.  Anyone know anything else about this station?
