QSL: KLEB Golden Mountain LA 1600


It was a real surprise catching the signal of KLEB “The Rajun’ Cajun” on 1600 kHz at Lista in January 2014. This station operates with a night time power of just 250 watts out of Golden Mountain, Louisiana. Usually WUNR in Boston dominates the frequency of 1600 kHz completely here, other stations are rarely heard. KLEB was a station never heard be us before, but came through with a clear station ID one morning on this DXpedition. Jerry “Truck” Gisclair verified my reception of the station a couple of days ago.

KLEB is a cool station playing a mix of zydeco, cajun and swamp pop. All this music is indigenous to Louisiana, the latter (swamp pop) “a fairly obscure genre” according to Wikipedia! 🙂 KLEB has a live stream on the Internet, highly recommended if you (like me) enjoy this kind of music!
