Caught "Rock Steady" here also jFarley with a S5 and good audio and then off. Back on with more tunes. Playing "You Lied Satan" by Trash Money at 0150. Music songs like what XLR8 would play. XLR8 ID at 0200. Maybe. ???

S9+10!

Shazam says this is Abra Cada Braxas by Can.

Seems to be off at 0141z.

Nope, back again at 0143 with Moonshake, also by Can.

This smells like XLR8... Yep!  XLR8 ID over the music at 0159.

6950 USB / Aug 27 / 0120-0155+.  Decent into Onaha pkaying music I don't recognize.  Long spaces of dead air between songs.  No ID, as yet, heard.

If you're going to play Can, there's a pirate law that says you have to play Tangerine Dream.
