    *krackle* ...ower yet? We're transmitting? Welcome, people of the greater Detroit region and the southeast swamplands! You are listening to 760 WJR, the first radio station to return after the disaster and we'll be bringing you news, music, and information 24/7 for as long as we can!

    First up, the Lord Mayor of Saline is requesting able bodied men and women to serve in the militia, the job pays in food and a land grant after an eight year term of service. Sounds good to me!

    And now for some music! *adagio for strings*

    *A looping emergency broadcast cuts off, followed by a violent squeal of static, then silence. Abruptly, the station erupts with a voice with a distinctive Scandinavian accent.*

    WELCOME BACK, TWIN CITIES! This is "Mad Marc" Mendelson, your Voice of Reason at the End of the World, and you're listening to KQQL 107.9- that's KOOL 108, supplying all your post-apocalyptic Golden Oldies needs!

    For those dozen or so of you somehow listening to this broadcast, I'd like to welcome what's left of the Greater Twin Cities area back to life after the Apocalypse! How'd it happen? Damned if I know, but I'm here to keep you informed and updated! For your edification, I'm Lance Corporal Marcus Mendelson with the 34th Infantry Division- that's the Big Bad Red Bull, your local Weekend Warriors, you may have seen us in the past few weeks- and I've been ordered by my boss to keep this old junker running as my unit heads north to restore communications with the north end of the state! Get used to me, folks, I'm probably gonna be here a while.

    First on the list: Anyone who cares should tune in next Thursday when we hold a funeral for the prior station staff, headed by Dan Donovan, the "Golden Geezer". We don't know exactly HOW they died, children, but they kept the E-broadcasts running right up until they bought it, so we're giving them a hero's out. Tune in Thursday at just after 12 o'clock high to pay your respects.

    Up next, our schedule for the following weeks is gonna include a lot of news- updates from the 34th as they grind through the apocalyptic hell towards Duluth, P.I. bulletins on life after the End, and just about anything else I can think of to yammer about! This is important stuff, people, so pay attention!

    Third, and finally for today, I'd like to personally thank the Minnetonka Militia for their help with that Scavvie skirmish over by the Glen Lake intersection. You boys saved my bacon right proper, you know that? Many thanks.

    Well, I'm sure you're tired of hearing me talk by now, so let's get some music on this box- God Knows, we've got enough of it here! I think we'll start off with the best damn band that ever picked up a guitar- first broadcast in the End is gonna be the Beatles, with Can't Buy Me Love!

    So from all of us in the Red Bull to all of you in the Twin Cities, this is "Mad Marc", and you're listening to... *pause, shuffling of papers* "KQQL- Anoka, Minneapolis, St. Paul!"

    *scratchy pre-recorded sting plays*

    "Super 60's and 70's, KOOL 108!"

    Keeping the thread alive with some seriously abridged repostings.
    Good evening, Twin Cities. Mad Marc Mendelson here- you might notice that I'm a little quieter tonight than normal. Well, there hasn't been any news from the 34th since last Sunday and I'm a little worried, to be frank- they're all my friends up there, you know.

    Still, life trudges on, and I'm not about to abandon you all to the horrors of the End. So, tonight, we're having a very abridged reading of terms from Wilbert Smitt's "A Gentlemen's Guide to the Wasteland". Just gonna paraphrase some quick information for you.


    "Humanity, at the end of the world, has survived- though not unscathed by any means. In my travels through the Wasteland that was once North America, I have found that society has regressed into multiple subdivisions, listed here."

    "Munes: People who live in fixed settlements, towns, and communities. Munes usually strive to keep up services provided before the End, such as power, water, and law enforcement. The cosmopolitans of post-Apocalyptia."

    "Nomads: The drifters of the End. People who don't like to settle, but instead travel around between communities or avoiding 'civilization' altogether. This group includes a wide range of people, the most prominent being the inter-community traders that ply what remains of the road system."

    "Tribes: Hippies, pagans, neovegetarians, and the like, who've elected to pursue a life 'in harmony with nature', whatever that means. Similar to munes in that they form communities, but unlike munes seem to have no desire to rebuild anything."
    >> Amazing 01/12/09(Mon)13:12 No.3382832

    Original thread archived at http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/3124218/
    Now it gets nasty.

    "Clans: similar to munes in that they form communities, but these communities are much more akin to Raiders than anything else. Nasty, xenophobic, and hostile as a rule, but most of them won't shoot you on sight- they'll give you one warning first."

    "Bandits: Exactly what it says on the tin. Groups of nutters, no-goodniks, or outright psychopaths who gather together in the wastes with one thing in mind- to prey upon everyone else."

    "Raiders: similar to Bandits, but much worse in that they have vehicles and the know-how to use them. Usually the descendants of pre-End biker gangs, trucker convoys, and the like. Very bad news."

    "Muties: People mutated from heavy radiation who haven't been lucky enough to die yet. A VERY small percentage have managed to keep their minds and sanity intact after this; the rest are, basically, zombies."

    "Chromers: Renegade robots, automatons, and the like. The real dangerous ones have fully built A.I.. Not all 'bots are bad news for the rest of us, but the ones that are- they're Chromers."

    "Creatures: Also known as Monsters, Terrors, and Good-God-What-Is-That-Thing. Animals that the End of the World turned into utter abominations against God and Nature. As a rule, never friendly, and impossible to house-train."

    "Scavvies: The spiritual successors of inner-city trash such as street gangs and organized crime. By far the most dangerous thing prowling the ruins of most major cities, these guys have one thing in mind- killing and stripping whatever comes their way."

    There's more, but I think that's enough for today. From all of us in the Red Bull to all of you in the Cities, this is "Mad Marc" at KQQL- Anoka, Minneapolis, St. Paul. Have a good night, folks.

    *"The Seeker by The Who fades out*

    "Welcome back to the show America, if you're just tuning in, this is WLS 890 Chicago, the Voice of America. It's now hour two of our nightly broadcast and i'd like to take the time to tell you about the latest goings on around the Second City.

    "A few weeks ago we held our New Years celebration in Daley Plaza. The mutated pine tree from Christmas was still up, decorated with the shiniest bits of scrap the children could find, some glowsticks, and little paper dolls. The older citizen in the crowd got choked up when the "star" - three nine thousand candlepower spotlights slaved together - was put on the top of that tree from the old bucket truck. And on New Years, the microbrewers amount us shared what they could and the rest sung about... half, I think, the words to Auld Lang Syne.

    "And somewhere in the back, in an RV that had long since lost the ability to move, our boys from the University conspired over a composite wood table. While everyone outside was celebrating the present, they were considering the future. What could be done? What would have a lasting impact? What would help as many people as possible? And all that night they weighed their options and pondered these questions, and in the end they looked to the skies.
    >> And here I thought this wouldn't come back Anonymous 01/12/09(Mon)19:41 No.3385927
    "A long time ago, they tell me, the great satellite network that held the Old World together was destroyed and the world fell apart. With those satellites, there used to be communication from coast to coast and even around the world. They could predict the weather, they could see armies moving here and there, they could see the stars... they could do so many great and wonderful things! But that's all gone. They tell me that they could've built another satellite, but the amount of scrap metal up there would destroy it within days at the most.

    "But that's about to change. For their New Years Resolution, the University boys have decided to design and launch a special satellite; a "metal sweeper" that would collect the scrap metal and burn it in the Earth's atmosphere. In a few years, they say, it might even be possible to send up a satellite. In a few decades, they say, things might be able to go back to the way they were.

    "Maybe. I'm not sure I believe the time scale they offered, but if nothing else, it's worth a shot and they have this station's support. Therefore, i'm putting out a general call for scientists and engineers. If you would like to be involved in this project, I would invite you to come to Chicago and help our boys clear the skies.

    "*sigh* Listen to me ramble. In an hour we'll be airing the Ohio Riverboat schedule, but for now, here's some Foghat with 'Sweet Home, Chicago'. This is WLS 890."

Seems that some of the smaller boats along the Ohio have been under attack from - get this - pirates on old Vietnam-lookin' gunships. Aside from steady pay and on the job training, the Merchant Marines offer a chance to see the world! Well, the world being the entire Ohio River Valley, at least. The word's being spread far and wide on our HAM network, so enlist while there's still room left!

    "On the trade front, the winter crops seem to be doing well so far, so expect those onions and broccoli to be rolling down the river pretty soon. As always, weapons, clothing, fuel, and electrical parts are very welcome trade goods, so keep that in mind when the boat comes to your nearest port around... what? *mumbling* the middle of February.

    *Steppenwolf's "Magic Carpet Ride" fades out*

    GOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING GREATER METRO! To all of you in the Two Rivers area- as I'm so told the towns are called now- coming to you loud and proud from what's left of Anoka, this is "Mad Marc" Mendelson, and you're listening to KQQL 107.9- that's KOOL 108, your Golden Oldies Station! For your edification, that last number was... *pause* Steppenwold, with "Magic Carpet Ride".

    It's time for your Morning News Break, kiddos! First things first- it's the Duluth Campaign Update, Day 42! As of the last transmission, which came in just last night, I've been told that they've run into some trouble along I-35, which appears to be held by- get this- a tank. I'm not even kidding- by the sound of things some of the Bandits have managed to find a Bradley Fighting Vehicle and get the sucker running, which is bad news for the 34th since they used up most of their anti-v ordnance on those Raiders last week. Last I heard, they're headed back down 35 and headed west, towards Camp Ripley outside Little Falls. Best of luck to ya, boys.

    ANNND IN LOCAL NEWS, everyone's heard about the explosion at St. Anthony Falls- or at least, everyone heard it. According to the Waterfront Volunteer Patrol, a barge containing about half a shipment of ammonium nitrate crashed into the old Locks, and something sparked. They THINK- hard to tell, not much is left down there- that a group of enterprising locals were trying to haul it to the shore with some winches to see if there was anything worthwhile on it. For the uninformed, ammonium nitrate is fertilizer- but it also happens to be one hell of an explosive. Yeah. The WVP has found two dead so far- probably the only two they'll find within city limits- though neither of them have been identified yet. If you think they're yours, come down to the old Gold Medal Flour apartments to check- that's where the investigation is taking place.
    >> Repostan due to alterations Amazing 01/12/09(Mon)22:56 No.3387458

    In related news, the City Council held an emergency session not two hours ago, and have agreed to pay handsomely in food or fuel to anyone who can help clear these goddamned wrecks out of the river, so that it can be considered at least moderately safe again. So if you've got a boat, a shotgun, and a pair of brass balls, you might want to look into that. Just watch out for the carp.

    Also in Local News, the Weatherball Association has reported that that nasty-looking storm off west- the one that was purportedly dropping flaming hailstones the size of my fist- has apparently changed direction, and is now headed south AROUND the downtown region. Good news to all you Twosies- that's what I'm calling you now, blame the government as usual- who were scrambling for cover. And if you're picking me up in Mankato, you might want to invest in an iron umbrella. Find cover fast, kids, you don't want to get hit with these.

    That's all for now, Two Rivers, and once again, this is KQQL, your Voice in the End of the World! You're listening to "Mad Marc" on 107.9 on the FM wire, and remember, kiddies, Stay Kool! Up next, more of this music we seem to have lying around everywhere- get ready to dance, though your elders say no, because it's Kenny Loggins!

As for THAT, that was good old Billy Joel, with "The Stranger".

    It's time for the afternoon news, Day 55, and do I have news for you, Twosies! Namely, the Duluth Campaign is finally coming to a close! That's right, my old pals in the 34th Infantry Division have finally managed to stomp their way through the Raiders that were effectively holding what was left of Duluth hostage, and are currently mopping up the last of the bastards as I talk to you! This is fresh news, kids, hot off the carrier pigeon, so raise a glass of whatever hell-brew you keep hidden tonight for the proud men, women, and otherwise of the Red Bull!

    ANNND IN LOCAL NEWS, the City Council announced today that they're looking for anyone with mechanical expertise to help with the upkeep of the city's water filtration services- kind of important, ladies and gents, and you know the Council always pays well. Anyone looking to help with this- and I mean seriously looking to help, if you don't have the know-how or are just looking to dick around the place they'll throw you into the river for the carp- should make their way to the old plant in Columbia Heights and talk with the Chief of Water Management, that being Hiram Lorens.

    In the meanwhile, have another dose of music- you can't stop me from playing it, so you might as well enjoy it! From our endless stockpile here in the Anoka studio, it's time for... *pause* Grand Funk Railroad, with their cover of that classic song-and-dance known as the Loco-Motion!

    I recorded a brief segment of a Mad Marc broadcast and submit it for /tg/'s approval. I went with a slightly southern accent for this despite not being a southerner, so if it sounds ridiculous please let me know. I'm more than willing to try a few more times with a more natural speaking voice.

    Ah, god I love that song. In keeping with this station's prewar tradition, we're gonna be bringing you more long sets of music with less talk. And congratulations to the winner of the Remington 870 and ammo, Juan Martinez, who brought me a whole damn CASE of tea. Radio's the best gig, I swear. Now, here's that long set of music I promised you, including a little Big Black with Stinking Drunk, some Steely Dan with Reelin' In The Years, and Reggie & The Full Effect with Congratulations Smack and Katy. First off, though, we've got the station's unofficial theme song, and a personal favorite of mine, even if the lead singer's a whiny powertool. Here's Rage Against The Machine with Guerilla Radio. Good God I hope the plumbing in this place still works.

    "Alright, light's green, we're back up."
    Good morning Miami! WFLC 97.3FM is back on the air and by our calculations we should have full state coverage now. We're bouncing off as many towers as our teams could find, so for those just discovering us, HEY, WHAT'S UP? Now, time for some local news, and I'll have a surprise later!

    Headlines! Metro militia teams report the last of the cuban gangs have been extinguished, Miami is safe once again and I swear, this week's been the first time I haven't heard gunfire echoing through the night. Almost kept me up. The local chieftain is asking for all refugees with skills of any kind to move back in, there's plenty of abandon housing and materials available.--

Bad news, the Gulf coast is toast. Do not eat anything out of the Gulf coast waters my friends or you'll never need a lantern at night.

    Next piece... Ammo caches are running low, If any trade caravans out there have excess to sell, the city chieftain's willing to pay what you're asking!

    Lastly.. word of advice, keep your metal goods covered kids, nothing corrodes like salty air, and we've got more then enough.--

It's got a shit load of old music on it, so.. drumroll please.. for the first time, WFLC has some music for you! First up is a little piece called.. Alive, by a group named Pearl Jam.

    I'm pretty sure you can either open up multiple mp3 projects to splice, or open up multiple sessions of audacity. I really recommend finding yourself a copy of audition, though. It can be slightly resource intensive, I think, but it's the absolute TITS for this sort of thing.

    Hey Miami, this is Sky High Mike at WFLC 97.3FM! That last song was.. The New Pollution.. by Beck. No, I don't get it either so don't ask. Anyways, it's 9am and a nice 104 degrees out, the coldest winter in a long time! Here's the daily lowdown!

    Gator mutants have been spotted in lower Coral Gables in large force, so if you're heading out there, keep your eyes peeled and your gun ready, they're deadly and according to some reports, good eatin!

    The fishing fleet's have reported seeing strange boats moving around the ocean with heavy armament, possibly pirates. So far they've left the fisheries alone, but we can't let our guard down so be aware!--

Crew reportedly came from a place called Newport News, Virginia. Looks like some other East coasters survived afterall! They're departing in 5 days and looking for anything that might catch their eyes. The local chief's currently in negotiations for setting up an ocean going trade route, but with those potential pirates out there.. well we'll just have to see.

    Turkey Point nuclear plant is looking for more men and women of all ages, preferably with militia training, to fill their ranks so they can safely expand their influence maybe get Palm Beach wired up. It's about time those poor sobs get some night lights that aren't burning trees or raider corpses.

    Speaking of utilities, the water plant is now running at a wonderful 30%, that means double water rations people! You can thank Allen Fields and his combat engineers for capturing, stripping and transporting those filters and pumps back from gang and raider territory! Allen claims he'll be able to get the old plant to 60% within 2 years, cheers to him!--

    Generic broadcasts of all sorts would also make an awesome contribution to this, for more general purpose use. Simply fuzz out the station identification or just start the broadcast very slightly in, completely avoiding the ID; as well, just say "the city" or another generic term, to obviously allow use wherever a fa/tg/uy might desire.

    Mad Marc's second broadcast can be found at the link above. This one is a bit dry, and I wasn't sure if "munes" is supposed to be pronounced 'myu-ns' or 'moons' so your mileage may vary. If you've ever wanted to hear me vocalize a long list of shit, this is the broadcast for you! Inconsistencies in my accent and the one time I over-pronunciate the letter T and blow into a mic a tiny bit should hopefully not mar the experience too much.

    Hello little Wastelanders, it's your last, best hope for Fashion at the end of the world, Jark Francis. I'm here to save you all from the horrors of bad fashion. Here's some quick pointers on how to look your best.

    Number One: Go from Dread and Dazzle, by using brightly coloured road signs found around the wasteland to add Fab to your dull brown leather armour!

    Number Two: Work off those pounds by swapping your gun for a melee weapon.

    Number Three: When taking a bath, make sure the water isn't radiated. Noting ruins good skin like toxic waste.

    And last for the day

    Number Four: A good mix of water, detergent and elbow grease can get any blood stain out.

    Good afternoon, students, I am Master Fu, teacher of the martial arts, here to pass my wisdom on to you. Normally I'd teach you ways on enlightenment before teaching you how to kill a man, but given the state of the world, I'd think you'll find the latter more useful.

    Today's lesson, FLYING TIGER KICK.

    Step 1: Get some distance between you and your target.

    Step 2: Run towards your target. Be careful not to get a stitch!

    Step 3: Jump in the air when a few feet away from your target. Remember to keep your forward momentum or it just wont work.

    Step 4: Point one leg at you target's head and keep the other bent into a sort of wing shape.

    Step 5: Shout HI YA!

    If you follow all these step correctly, you should hit you target in the head, knocking him to the ground.

    NEXT WEEK: The Falcon Punch! For this, you'll need a falcon and some duck tape.

    I'm outright honored, I have to say- especially by the voicework (though for some reason, as of this posting, it won't let me download the fething things, I'm honored that someone thought my writing good enough to narrate. Will continue efforts to download).

    I intended the second broadcast to be more cut-and-dried in nature, frankly, since Marc's paraphrasing out of a book rather than what I'd imagine his normal style- that being raw improv. Also, I'm fairly certain it's pronounced "myuunes", just for reference.

    *A scratchy recording of Beethoven's Symphony No. 6 is violently cut off mid-note, and a voice that is far, far too chipper for 6:23 in the morning blasts out of the speakers.*

    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNIN' TWO RIVEEEEEERS! Hope you had a nice night, but now it's OOOOVER- this is your Kool Morning Wakeup Call, from us to you with love! The sun has just risen over Wisconsin and we're looking at another beee-YOOtiful day! *abruptly more somber* Well, as beautiful as you can get nowadays. *the chipper mood quickly returns*

    For those of you who've been hit on the head recently, this is your Voice of Reason at the End of the World- the one, the only, the fantastic and bombastic, "MAD MARC" MENDELSON! And you're listening to your Local Golden SuperStation, KQQL 107.9 on your dial- that's KOOL 108!

    First things first- for those of you early-birds who were listening in before I added my dulcet tones to the mix, that one of the many symphonies of Ludwig von Beethoven, who I am told by the more cultured on my staff was the BEST Son-Of-A-Teuton to ever conduct an orchestra. This may be a subject of debate, but you cannot deny that it was pretty good.

    The first year Post-End-of-the-World.

    At any rate, welcome back to the dawn, Two Rivers and Surrounding, and it's time for your Morning News Update! In Regional, the 34th Infantry has reported that the Duluth militias have finally become organized enough to take over from the Weekend Warriors! That's right, you heard it here first, ladies, gents, and otherwise- the Big Bad Red Bull is coming home!

    And in Local today, a bit of amazing and amusing information for your edification-- namely, that the local Chief of the Cops has been burned while in the backroom! No joke, kiddos- Police Chief Penworth of the West St. Paul District was found in the wee hours of last night handcuffed up, stripped clean of cash and, well, just about everything else! A-paarentlyyyy, the good Officer was attempting to "strip-search" a female in the boiler room of his station. However, his charge seemed to object to this and, well, cleaned him out.

    While I'm letting you let the mental image of Chief Penworth naked get hard-burned into your cerebellums, it may interest you to know that the chief has been "indefinitely suspended" by Cop Central, and Police Commissioner Vanderhousen has declared a medium-scale manhunt for the woman responsible. But our Miss Fortune's rum luck hasn't all fermented yet- Penworth has also sworn to find the, and I quote, "conniving bitch", and bring her in himself. Just what we need, eh? A vigilante debarred police chief. If I were you, Twosies, I'd load those guns now and keep a watch out.

    In other Local News, the first ship in three months- purportedly a trade tug from Davenport- has been spotted picking its way up the Mighty Miss. According to the latest Pigeon Post, the tug was most recently spotted making port in Wabasha, and intends to continue up to our little neck of the woods to see if they can't scare up some business! No word on their cargo yet, folks, so you know the Post-Apocalyptic Drill; be ready for anything!

    That's all for now, Two Rivers! From our concrete box in Anoka across the air to your heart, this is Mad Marc, wishing all of you a great day in *a demonic rumble is abruptly added to the announcer's tone* HELL! *short pause, then the voice returns with no trace of the rumble* And don't you forget, lest you forever regret, you're listening to KQQL- that's 107.9 on your FM dial, and you're here after the end with KOOL 108, your Local Golden SuperStation!

    Up next, we segue right into some music, for your edification and delight! Don't expect to hear any more from me for the next hour or so, folks, and to start off this lyrical fillibuster, we've got... *pause* the Electric Light Orchestra, singing about- what else- girl troubles! This one's for you, Chief Penworth!

    right, I was referring pretty much to the Mad marc ones. Seems like it was pretty recent?
    >> Amazing 01/13/09(Tue)17:48 No.3394912

    Ah, right.

    For the Mad Marc ones I pretty much envision that it can't be more than two or three years at most after the apocalypse (most likely, about a year by the time Marc starts broadcasting)- any longer, and larger military units like the 34th Infantry would have begun to dissolve into Raider and Bandit bands. Hard to keep cohesion among larger units. I can't imagine the 34th lasting much longer after they return to Two Rivers- they'll likely be dissolved and broken up into smaller local forces for ease of operation (I've already got a name for them- the Lakeland Military).

    The "days broadcasting" was a totally arbitrary choice of mine, chosen for two things: one, to showcase how difficult it is for even a semi-fully-armed and combat-tested military unit to make its way across country after the End. It took a division-sized infantry unit of National Guard, with considerable combat experience (including the longest to-date tour in Iraq), two months to make it from the Twin Cities to Duluth, despite I-35 being almost entirely intact- that shows how dangerous the backcountry has become.

    And, secondly, the dates showcase that Mad Marc most definitely has the three things required of a great DJ- personality, patience, and a love of his own voice.

    Well, that depends on what the Apocalypse WAS, doesn't it?

    And the kicker is that no-one's exactly sure what it was, indeed. Most military types think it was small-scale nuclear war- just enough to tear society apart at the seams- and this is generally the accepted theory, though to be frank it has not yet been proven or disproven. Religious types will tell you to a man that it was either, A. God's Wrath, or B. The Rapture. The Tribes call it the Liberation and don't care what it was- throwing off the concrete and asphalt chains of former society- but then again they're sort of nuts as a whole, so who knows.

    The theories have no end, and grow increasingly esoteric as their tellers' sanity decreases- mad science, time-travel fuckery, another scheme by the "gummint" to extort more money out of the people. Some of the Muties- the ones that kept their minds, anyhow- think that it was originally intended as some kind of experiment that got way out of hand.

    Society after the End- referring to the End as a specific event as well as the general End of the World- is much like the society from "Anthem" (give me a break, it was required reading in junior high) minus the creepy no-individuality attitude (as people like Mad Marc show, if you don't have individuality in this world you're as good as dead already). They know SOMETHING destroyed them, they're just not sure what the hell it was. And all they can do is rebuild.

    But, to answer your question: still in the middle of the throes of Nuclear Winter, just a year after the noise stopped- though, the massive global climate shifts have somewhat negated the effects of the Nuclear Winter, though not entirely.

    The end result here, is that Minnesotan summers are now peaking at highs of 77 on the hottest day of the year (FUN FACT: Minnesotan summers have been known to peak over 100 before in the normal world. Yeah, and you thought we were America's Icebox all year round). And the winters... well, let's just say that you had better be a Minnesotan. That, or buy a damned good jacket.

    For Marcus Mendelson (and no-one but he, his commander, and his two best friends know this), it's the song that was playing in the background when he proposed to his fiance. Of course, that was back before the world ended...

    Little advice for all you tourists out there, keep away from Crown casino as it seems they're worse things than gangsters in there now days. According to reports, apparently a group of crab monsters have taken up residence there and are after more than hard, earned money to any sucker than comes crawling there way.

    For all you Weeaboos out there, A young lady named Clover managed to find herself a crate of ex-Japanese experimental weapons and is selling them off. From Missile pods to Mecha lasers to Ninja swords, everything you need to show off how much of a danger loving Dork you are. You'll find her in the old parts of china town, just look for the girl with the green hair.

    And lastly, a big thank you goes out to those boys in wearing power armour and letterboxes, Ned's Rangers. These boys are out there in the bush everyday, protecting good folk from raiders and bandits, all the while giving those Sydney Siders something to think about.

    Unfortunately, somehow, New Zealand managed to avoid all the major detonations, and are completely oblivious to the entire thing, although the sheep have managed to develop vocal chords as a result of the fallout, and the Kiwi population is now well aware that BAAA actually DOES mean NO.

    Good evening, Superior. The time is six-oh-five, and you're listening to WMTU out of Houghton, Superior.

    A courier from Calumet reached the Watch in Hancock today, providing an update on the situation further north in the Keewenaw. There has been a confirmed Abominable attack on Eagle Harbor, with evidence suggesting it occurred at sundown during the town hall meeting there. In all likelihood this means that they will raid the Houghton-Hancock area within three to five days, meaning that curfew in now in effect and militia volunteers are to report to the Bridge Garrison Building within twenty-four hours to receive further orders.

    A steamer fleet out of Duluth, Minnesota, has reported a drop in temperature and heavy winds in the port city just as the convoy left. The cold front will likely hit the entire Keewenaw, so stock up on firewood and make sure that powerlines and generators are secure.

    The Thunder Government in former northern Ontario is refusing to relinquish control of Sault Saint Marie. Levies may be called up soon. Remember, any man called for duty is eligible for discounts on rail ticket prices and may be permitted free passage on the steamer lines for transportation to Marquette. Abominable raids on coastal towns and shipping is still a serious issue between L'Anse and Munising, making rail travel the more advisable option.

    That's the local news for the top of the hour. At eight o'clock will come Midwest affairs, but coming up next are the sweet sounds of Parliament, from their album “Up For The Down Stroke.”

    ...paint and oils, I ran out of woodpeckers befor--

    Ah, good evening Superior. The time is currently eight-oh-three, and you're listening to WMTU out of Hancock, Superior.

    The Lord Mayorate of Saline is currently in talks with the People's Republic for a joint water-drainage and land reclamation project in the former Washtenaw area. While Saline and Ann Arbor do hold old grudges, land reclamation may prove essential in further development and recovery of the southeast outside of Detroit. I remind all prospective merchants and travellers to never enter the old city, as the ruins are still inhabited with muties and bandits. NEVER accept an offer of “Juanoen.”

    The Illinois Provisional Government has issues a statement recently, claiming that they have retaken Chicago from the Hermosillo-Wu bandit clans. A representative of the “Hermowu” branch clan in Milwaukee denies this, stating that “Sinoxican forces are still valiantly holding strong in Joliet.” It is not clear who, if anybody, is telling the truth.

    All contact with Gary, Indiana, has been lost. No one has entered or left the city since the “teacup incident” two months ago, but radio contact remained strong until last Thursday, with the last radio report containing such mysterious statements as “their eyes are all black, their eyes are all black. My skin is grayer today. Hair falling out. They're trying to make me one, too, but I won't let them! I won't let them! They'll--” following by the sound of a gunshot. People living around southern Lake Michigan are encouraged to boil lake water before drinking.

    Uh-oh, little wasteland. My Bad Fashion Counter going through the roof. Looks like you need more of my Style Tips.

    Tip number one: Guns are not only necessary for life in the wasteland, but can make great accessories too! A simple silver pistol will go well with any outfit, but remember to give it a good polish ever now and again.

    Tip number two: When using a laser gun, make sure that the laser bolt's colour doesn't clash with your outfit. If it does, just change your current energy cells for a different brand.

    Tip number three: When making home made armour, avoid tires at all costs. Not only will they give you an unsightly bulge, they smell awful when they're on fire.

    and last for today.

    Tip number four: Grown an extra set of arms? Don't hide them away. Just find yourself two pairs of matching gloves and go from mutant to marvelous! Everyone who'll see your new look will mutate an envious eye, let me tell you!

    That's it for today, and remember Wastelanders, stay fabulous!

    Nitpicks for this broadcast: The quality on Four Little Diamonds at the end is such utter shit. I couldn't quickly find a download for it to splice into the end of the mix and wound up just jamming my microphone against my speaker while it played from Youtube. On the upside, as evidenced in the beginning of the broadcast, I've gotten the hang of Adobe Audition and can put together a nice sounding broadcast now. Expect quality in future broadcasts to pick up even more.

    Resources Report: September 5th, [date smudged out]
    Source of Origin: ACC Central Broadcasting Station, Newport News, Confederation of Virginian States.
    Ever since the cataclysm/series of cataclysms that resulted in the utter collapse of human society (hereafter referred to simply as “the End”), a surprising number of communities have been attempting to pull life back together. Many of these communities seem to center around or incorporate radio broadcasting stations into their daily life—once major broadcasting centers or simply the more elaborate amateur setups, these sets have proven more resilient to the cataclysms and the test of time than television or holovision broadcasting equipment, and the receivers appear to have also proven more hardy than TV sets or holo rings.

    As a result, many communities now have their own radio station broadcasting music, chatter, and chaos across the airwaves. So many, in fact, that the problem is once more arising that some of these stations are beginning to tread on each others’ toes, resulting in spats, fights, and at times open armed combat over control of a frequency for their broadcast area.

    As a result, we have reformed the former Federal Communications Commission, or FCC, into the American Communications Commission, or ACC, which will serve to regulate radio traffic not just for the former United States but for the entirety of both American continents. We have begun spreading word of this effort via pigeon post and word-of-mouth, though it will take some time to get so many eccentric radio personalities organized.

    In the meantime, we have begun cataloging the known radio stations—or, at least, the most prolific or long-lived ones, or the ones with the strongest signals. This list follows, and will be expanded as necessary.
    >> 107.9 FM, callsign KQQL: “KOOL 108”. Amazing 01/14/09(Wed)12:15 No.3402346

    Central Transmitter Location: Anoka, South Minnesota Territory.

    Transmitter Arrangement: Initially, one ERP-50,000 watt transmitter next to the station in Anoka (initially 96,000, but the on-site generator cannot exceed 50,000 watts output). However, recently several dish relays have been set up on old power towers and the like in the surrounding countryside, boosting the signal’s range.

    Effective Service Area: The entire Greater Metropolitan Area surrounding the settlement of Two Rivers, with the signal beginning to break up at Apple Valley and becoming inaudible by Cannon Falls (to provide examples of the radii). However, due to the tight-beam dish relays the station crew has assembled, the station can also be picked up in much smaller circles of effect centered around several nearby settlements including: St. Cloud, Mankato, Owatonna, Rochester, Red Wing, Wabasha, and Eau Claire (only on a good day for Eau Claire and Rochester).

    Station History: Founded in the 1960s, and went through various format and content changes before settling on the KQQL callsign and oldies format in 1988. Continued to vary their library right up until the end, but mostly remaining an oldies station. Re-discovered by Marcus Mendelson roughly a year after the End, and put back into operation by the same.
    >> 107.9 FM, callsign KQQL: “KOOL 108”. Amazing 01/14/09(Wed)12:16 No.3402358

    Current Station Format: Self-described as “oldies”. Plays rock, disco, R&B, blues, and a variety of other music produced in the pre-End period between 1950 and 1980. Music library’s size is not known for certain—station operator has come into possession of about 35 old vinyl records with various songs on them, but most of the library and indeed the station is digitally operated. Digital library contains at least 600 songs based off of those played in the station’s 90 days of operation so far, quite possibly contains a good number more.

    In between songs, station frequently announces news regarding the region (I.E., the North and South Minnesota Territories) and its goings-on, along with various “Public Service Announcements” containing information of benefit to survival. Among these: “How to Build Your Own Geiger Counter”, “The Importance of Water Purification”, “Firearms: a Basic Primer”, and “Advice For The Mutated”.

    Time Spent Broadcasting: 90 days as of September 5th.

    Time Spent Broadcasting in Current Format: 90 days.
    >> 107.9 FM, callsign KQQL: “KOOL 108”. Amazing 01/14/09(Wed)12:18 No.3402377

    Current Station Operator: Marcus Mendelson. Lance Corporal, Minnesota National Guardsman, Former U.S. Army. Unit: 34th Infantry Division (disbanded; see Lakeland Military).

    Air Name: “Mad Marc”. Age unknown. Gender: Male. Race: Caucasian. Heritage: Uncertain. Medical records not found. Known to be a native of Maiden Rock, MN; presumably, all his records were thus lost when Raiders destroyed that town shortly after the End. Speaks with a wild blend of accents, intonations, and tones while on the air, making identification by vocal quirks impossible. Has a bombastic style of DJing—tends to talk at high speed for elongated periods of time, rattling off news and information at a neckbreaking pace. Fond of using alliteration and complex words to make himself sound more grandiose and intelligent, and thus get people to pay better attention to what he has to say. Runs KOOL 108, according to an outside observer, “as if he’s flying a jet sideways through a forest at top speed, with the canopy down—frantic, frenetic, constantly improvising and thoroughly enjoying every moment of his seemingly imminent—but never quite—death from exhaustion. I don’t know where he gets the energy."

    Previous Station Operators: None. Mendelson rules his roost with an iron fist and a phalanx of M-16s, and in his 90 days of operation has so far repelled at least two well-armed attempts to shut down the station, with brutal force and ferocity.

    All fluff produced by Amazing Writefaggotry LLC is designed to be by and large interchangeable for use with any story, setting, or timeline. Feel free to change names/locations/dates as it suits, and remember the AW LLC motto (at least for this project):

    "We're not trying to make a fixed canon here."
    Nothing in the world after the End is organized on a large scale. The most united anyone has gotten is loose coalitions of communities, such as the Confederation of Virginian City-States or the Minnesota Territory Associations (both North and South). Everyone’s doin’ their own thing, just tryin’ to survive.

    These communities cooperate where it best fits their interests, however, and trade between them is frequent.

    One exception to all this is a private organization evidently composed of radio enthusiasts from around the country, who grew upset when some of their favorite DJs began becoming casualties of wars fought over control of frequencies and decided to reform the pre-End FCC as the ACC, and are now attempting to coordinate radio stations across the Americas from a bunker-like installation in Newport News. They do not appear to have an ulterior motive, though in this world nothing is certain.

He speaks with the air of a benevolent older brother, making sure his warnings are heard alongside his conversation.

    Edgar Salison broadcasts as "The Good Doctor." He claims to be one of two physicians in Bakersfield, records are unclear as to the veracity of this statement. Appears daily in the station's morning talk timeslot, giving advice to proper nutrition, first aid, and treatment of common illnesses.

    Reverend Jacob Thomas leads the evening talk slot under his own name. He opens and closes with short sermons, though apart from these, the content of his segments is not religious. The Reverend was trained as an electromechanical technician, and most often gives instructions to repairing essential equipment. Was at the forefront of the taskforce that reclaimed the station.

    That's what I assumed when I wrote the original - that, and there would probably be an awful lot of formerly civilian ships with a new paint job and some new "navy" crews in the new look Royal New Zealand Navy.

    As for the Air Force - well, it's basically configured to spot ships in the New Zealand EEC doing things we don't like anyway, and has some limited ASW capacity as is. That's the sort of thing that could get improvised fairly nicely, bulked out with whatever civilian aircraft were in the country during the Big One. That, and there's probably the odd fighter or bomber from other pre-castastrophe states that made it to New Zealand anyway.

    Behind the quarantine I see New Zealand steadily regressing back to the 1920s, as all the technological stuff we import slowly breaks down and doesn't get replaced.

    “Welcome back, municipals and other assorted freaks, I'm Jay Holland, and this it the Big Wax, AM 570, Gadsden, Alabama, representing the free munes of the Coosa and Tennessee Valleys from our fortified studios on South 4th street. It's a horrible winter day here in the free munes, but let's get to the news, before you freeze to death under these 20 degree temperatures. First of all, the trade convoy to Atlanta has returned successfully, with enough copper wire to repair the number three turbine on Neely Henry Dam, so we'll have power to run the radio station every day from 3pm to 9pm without having to get diesel donations to run the generator, except in emergencies.

    Now for security news. In Gadsden, we've cleared the last of the Murderwood scavvies and pushed them back into Attalla. Hopefully anyone that might try to make it here from the ruins of Bombingham will take US 411 instead of old 59, since those scavvie punks are going to be madder than a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. Irregular troops from the A & O Mune have helped themselves to the spoils of the Anniston Army Depot, and have cleared the routed between Anniston, Sylacauga's rock farms, and Gadsden, via 431 and 21. But without the troops to guard at home, we've noticed a big rise in jackings north of town, especially in the old downtown, and in Saks. The irregulars, who have taken to calling themselves the “Mad Chemists”, given the town's military history have vowed to clear all the scavvies from the H-Avenue and 15th Street hives as soon as 431 is secure through Alexandria.

    Now for the inter-city warnings of the day.

    Clan violence is still in high effect, and all people are advised...heck if they ignore it it's their ass. Don't go up Sand Mountain into Guntersville, to Arab or Cullman, or to Lake Harris because of clans that'll eat you and sell your bones for meth. Birmiingham and Huntsville are supposedly glassed over from nukes, we haven't heard any radio from them, and no one that's gone in has come back yet, so we think the radiation's got them. Atlanta's fine, but you can't get there from here, it's one hundred miles of the worst clans, raiders and muties you'll ever see, along the old 20 corridor.

    And lastly, the work information for the free munes. If you have any experience with boating, or know about the Tennessee River, you're needed in Guntersville to help run the Tennessee Ferry for a trade run to Chattanooga. If you worked at Lee Brass or any other forge pre-end please report to Lee Brass on the Eastern Bypass as they retool the foundry to producing ammunition. And anyone who worked at Goodyear or GSS in Gadsden please report to the Wal-Mart in East Gadsden, to start producing tires and other rubber items for trade with the rest of the stock at the factory. We can trade these items for more food and copper, hopefully.

    And now, back to the classics, this is the Ohio Players, with Skin Tight!

    God I love topics like this, go for getting the brain juices going. Time for another go.

    Good morning ruins of Melbourne, you're listening to 101.13 ATOMIC FM, your own personal station at the end of the world. I'm your host, Dino Jay!

    It's time for more travels tips about Melbourne. Need a new gun? Got some junk to trade? Just a lover of a bargain? Then you'll wanna get you head to the Queen Victoria Market, they got everything you could possible need. Here's more from our man on the field, Mike Van.


    Thanks Dino, here I am in the middle of the market. I currently at the weapons and they have got everything, let me tell you. From pistols to rocket launchers to lasers to cricket bats, perfect for father's day. Look, there's even some home made weapons, like this gun that fires lawn gnomes.

    And heading down to the food stalls, we got all kinds of fresh meals you'd never expect to see after the end of the world. We've got wasteland fruits and veg. Tinned food scavenged from the city and, excuse me sir mind if I try this, mmmmmmm. The best cockroach stew in Melbourne.

    Moving down to the clothing stall, would you look at this! A complete suit of power armour. This would of cost the Australian government over a million dollars to make back in the day, today, it's yours for only 200 bottle caps.

    So bring your war truck, bring you pack mutant and see the Queen Victoria Market has today!

    Back to you, Dino.
