Partial ID of "Bubblegum Express".  Op announced relay.  Solid +9 sig here but audio was muffled a wee bit, making for some unintelligibility.
ID at 2213 and into Lemon Pipers "Green Tambourine"
Ided as The Crystal Ship Bubblegum Express at 2224

Tuned in at 2238utc, good/fair sig, songs: "I woke up in love", "trouble trouble everywhere", "red baron", said "You're riding the TCS bubble gum express", said "tcsshortwave@gmail.com", more bubble gum music from the 1960's and 1970's. Edit: a bit of editorial here, now playing old 60's tune "Indian giver". In actuality it was white people who made treaties and broke all except one.

Very big signal here at 2256z, S9+10 with some quick fades. 53544. High local RFI level hurts the audio quality when it fades to S9

2258z - Edison Lighthouse - Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes.
2307z - TCS SW network "Bubblegum" Express ID.
