Silent Night, S7 in static

Possible ID at 2303, but muddy modulation. Mention of Merry Christmas.

2305: Santa Claus is Coming to Town
2316: ID I couldn't quite catch
2320: "Free Radio Is a Way of Life" by man, Christmas Show mention by female. Drifty down to 6924.6
2327: Another ID, something ".... pirate shortwave" but just too weak to catch
2335: Little Drummer Boyz

2347: QRT?

Thanks Dr Tim! Merry Christmas!

S5 and some fades here, playing Christmas music.  Possibly an ID with lots of echo, but couldn't copy.
Then into "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" @ 2305z
Announcer with british accent @ 2334, followed by a few words from YL.  Several mentions of Merry Christmas by OM.  Mostly in the noise since around 2310z.
"Drummer Boy" @ 2336z

Around S4. Modulation seems low, though, plus I am dealing with some freebander splatter here.

Thanks for the broadcast and happy holidays.

Tuned at 2300 Playing song It doesn't feel like Christmas Without You
2302 OM Merry Christmas, followed by YL giving out URL for HF Underground. Audio was a little muddy and tough to make out some of the other stuff. Several Merry Christmas, and short clips of song.
2306 Santa Clause is Coming to Town,.
