0357 -- just in time to catch Dr John / Right Place Wrong Time -- FB signal here
0402 -- Johnny Cash on request Folsom Prison Blues  -- signal improving to S8+
  A good segue from Magdalena might be The Wallflowers/3 Marlenas
  Still better, though, Steely Dan/Kid Charlemagne.  Nice.
0415 -- Oh, that's mighty fine - thank you Mr. Drunken DJ Man!
  Signal steady over S9 now.
0422 -- The Who/Going Mobile
  Another request from a greedy, shameless listener: Little Feat/Dixie Chicken.
0433 -- Indeed, I see the bright lights of Memphis, and the Commodore Hotel.
  Sweet live rendition, thanks times two, DDJ.

0456 -- Signal and DDJ fading together, great show.

+Thanks to MDK2 for the alert.

0345 S7, bit of a fight with static here, difficult copy on announcer
0356 S6, unmistakable voice of Pat Benetar & "Love is a Battlefield"
0358 S6 "Sound check" heard
0402 no signal

10
S7/S8; doing well against the static.

0425Z Elvis Costello/Veronica

0202Z: Static S9, signal S9+
0205Z: Familiar RH voice, Rammstein ann.
0212Z: Acknowledges the thunderstorm sizzle...but the static persists
0257Z: QRN still brutal
0330Z: (appx) Led Zeppelin, thank you, cutting through the static, but wow it's even more intense now.

Signal into Littleton Co is bodacious.  10dB/S9.  Much rock and roll.

Tip of the hat (with skull and x bones on it) to MDK2.

Great selection of tunes and chat, caught the shout-out, thanks

Later on:

0550 - signal drops sharply to < S3, carrier visible, inaudible (sometime near 0550)
0559 - some joy returns, about S7, for about 90 seconds
0601 - we are back to S3, faintly audible
0606 - up the slope a bit to S4/S5, music is apparent.
0633 - now a fine S8, Gary Jules, Mad World.  More impactful over shortwave radio.
