MAC Shortwave 6950.4 AM 1852 UTC 17 Nov 2013
« on: November 17, 2013, 1856 UTC »
Just tuned in to hear some music and then into Dr Who theme. So... RGI or MAC Shortwave? I assume the latter, since AM.  Checking the SDR rec, sign on was 1852 with MAC IS, so there you go.
Into a song about PacMan at 1859z.

S9+

Off at 2103. Thanks for the show!

Fair copy here, S5 with some static crashes.
Saying to email him if you know the name of the song he just played.
I think a wire came loose as he was trying to play the next song, said to hold on a moment.
and playing at wrong speed too.
A bit of 'I Saw Her Standing There' @ 2014z
'Blue Suede Shoes' @ 2045z.  Static crashes getting stronger. Then Tutti Frutti by Elvis

Thanks for the show!
