1713 Open carrier, about an S7 to S8.
1714 Bush "Little Things"
2032 Remix of The Archies "Sugar Sugar"

Nice! Now I have something to listen to in the basement workshop!

A big huge THANK YOU to the op. I had this on all day in the basement workshop on the R71A and dipole antenna. Great reception, and programming 100x better than anything on the local radio.

1745z "Love Me Do"  The Beatles
1749z "Big Girls Don't Cry"  The Four Seasons...just switched to the '36 Zenith Console 8S154 (Only do that for exceptional broadcasts with great programming & reception.  ;D)  Sounds like a Music Hall here.

1844z "Keep on Loving You" cover...good reception
1846z "Sex and Candy" Marcy Playground, better reception
1849z "Comfortably Numb" Pink Floyd  Excellent reception  My 35th wedding anniversary is in a couple weeks, maybe Your Song by Sir Elton?  My wife is nearby making apple butter, unaware of the request.
1856z   ;D "Your Song"  Sir Elton, She's laughing...I am now the best husband ever - actually you are the best programmer ever.

UnId, 6925 AM, 2130 - 0000, 8/27/17.  I was in and out of the room with dinner, etc.  Music the whole time starting at S5 and improving.  Just settled in at 2358 to the end of the song and off 2 minutes later.  Up to S8 by the end of the broadcast.

Thanks for the music.
