KLUV trivia: did you know Joe Walsh of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Eagles[/lastfm] is an avid amateur “ham” radio operator?  

It’s a true radio factoid.  Joe holds an Extra Class Amateur Radio License. His station callsign is WB6ACU.

In 2006 he donated an autographed guitar to the ARRL in Newington, Connecticut for its charity auction. Joe has also been involved with the group’s “Big Project,” which brings amateur radio into schools. Walsh has included Morse Code messages in his albums on two occasions: once on the album Barnstorm (“Register and Vote”), and later on Songs for a Dying Planet (“Register and Vote for Me”).

Joe will be the first guest on live sound pioneer and ham radio expert Bob Heil‘s Internet show HamNation.

Walsh wrote the theme song for the show, which premieres this coming Tuesday May 24th at 9:00 p.m. ET at ~JZ.
