On the Road with 88

Great Scott! 
I've just discovered an FM station called FM 88 which you tune into when driving through Australian towns, so you get tourist info about the places you are driving through.
When the dial hits 88 you're probably going to hear 

some serious s#!t? 
Radio FM 88 Australia
And that nude statue on the home page looks a little like the shape of a flux capacitor to me.
 "Australian Visitor Radio, Western Visitor Radio or "FM 88" is a radio information network providing information to travellers visiting the Newell Highway regions between Goondiwindi, Queensland and Finley, New South Wales. 
The headquarters/sales office is located in Parkes, New South Wales. 
Their slogan is "Travelling's Great, with FM 88" ".
" FM 88 provides travellers with the local history of the city that they are visiting. 
In addition, it also provides information about popular tourist venues that may be of interest. The broadcast is a recorded 30 minute interview with tourism operators in the particular town that they are visiting. 
The recording is replayed 24 hours a day / 7 days a week "

"The station's headquarters are in the town of Parkes,NSW. 
" With the presence of the nearby Parkes Observatory, 
Parkes has had an important role in the scientific community. 
In addition to local research conducted at the radio telescope, 
Parkes scientists have assisted NASA for several missions as 
a Southern Hemisphere relay and communications station.  
(The movie The Dish was based somewhat loosely on the role the telescope played during the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing.) "

Parkes hosts the annual Parkes Elvis Festival
It is held to celebrate Presley's birthday and to boost tourism.
Why Elvis?

 I actually found this station through Scott Alexander-King, in a round about way, after reading his book Earth Mother Dreaming and seeing this seminar he has planned for November -
 I suggested to him that he should ask Julie McKenzie along to do the seminar as well, as she is a psychic who grew up with, and rides horses.

 And Scott told me he and Julie are very good friends, oddly enough, but he was doing this retreat for his friend and that it wasn't really one that he is running for himself.
I've written previously here on this blog about reading Julie's book 
Dancing With Spirit 
Pink Orb Sync?
and there is a lot more to this story with Julie and her hometown, but I will cover that in an upcoming post called Highway 42.

Fascinating sequence of synchros here! Highway 88. It sounds more interesting than route 66!

It's only the radio station that's called 88FM,not the highway.
