Pounding into N. Alabama at 0310 w/ monologue by OM about "the children", "opening the treasure chest", "Jack came out", etc.  Eerie background music, similar to what was heard on Art Bell's "Coast to Coast" program.  <Onmiute or two of silence at 0318, the back on w/ more music and random talk.

ID and address by OM for the Elkhorn, NE PO Box at 0121 UTC.  Is this mailrdop still in operation?

Good signal into N. Alabama at 0118 e/ Hendrix "All Along The Watchtower".  Not even a carrier detected after end of song - off the air?

Loud into N. Alabama w/ Disturbed (one of my favorites, BTW), Rise Against and Arctic Monkeys. etc.  More modern rock music continuing, as of 0240 UTC.  Don;t recognize anny of these latter artists/bands, unfortunately.

Wish there was an ID on this one.  Although I'm no longer familiar with the artists/music being played, signal remains consistently strong, with good audio :)

UPDATE:  "WILD 100" slogan/ID given by male announcer at 0332, then seemingly off-the-air.  Again, PSE QSL.  TNX and 73

Fairly good here in N. Alabama, until around 0150, when signal took a "dip".  Seemed a bit over-mod during the spoken segments, but the classic rock and pop came through well.  Might just be signal shifting due to propagation and distance.  High QRN.  6960 better, due to the strong station on 6935 playing comedy routines.

Wow - this is LOUD here in N. Alabama!  Pigmeat Markham routine, into SSTV at 0145.  Don't have my SSTV decoder up and running, unfortunately.  Back into the comedy  routine at 0147.  Off around 0152/0153.

Love the Chris Cornell tribute show, guys !  Nice to include a Temple of The Dog song.  You might thrown in his cover of "Billie Jean" or "You Know My Name", his theme song from one of the Bond movies. :)

A steady S7+ here in North Alabama.  Much QRN to deal with.

Strong, S-8 here in N. Alabama w/ a bit of a Roger Waters song, then ID by Male voice (robotic, software-generated) saying "Welcome To Clever Name Radio. Six-Nine-Forty Five on your Shortwave Listening Device", repeated multiple times for 60 seconds.  Into "Again" by Alice In Chains, "Is This Love" by Bob Marley, "Tequila" by The Champs.  More very professionally-sounding IDs mentioning "Your station ....nothing will stand in it's way ... no one is safe...".  More music, including White Zombie's "Thunderkiss '69".  ID mentioning "Request lines are open" at 0052. Into Van Halen's "Litltle Guitars" (complete with the Intro !).  Off at 0055 ??

THIS is why I listen to Pirate Radio - when a station puts in a killer signal, with an imagiinative playlist and great production values.  Thank you so much Clever Name Radio !  BTW, I did not have to look up any of the song titles on Shazam, as I have most of what I heard in my music collection (even the White Zombie song)

S-6 with "Mama's Got A Girlfriend", "Mrs. Jones", "American Music", multiple songs from Earl Scrugss, from 2345 onward.  Northwoods Radio ID by YL at 0004, with wildlife sound fx  - so don't know if this was a relay, or QRM by Northwoods.  Radio Appalachia ID ay 0021 by OM mentioning "Free Voice of the Ohio Valley".  Nice signal here in N. Alabama.

BTW, I just heard a very clear "Northwoods Radio" ID w/ gmail address at 0021, during a brief break in the bluegrass.  Confused, as no NW Radio-specific programming is being heard.
