Tune in at 2330 with UNID Dance tune by female artist.  Followed by Fleetwood Mac "Gold Dust Woman" and "Werewolves of London" by Warren Zevon and "Witchy Woman" by The Eagles.  Peskie QR.

Signal really started to take a dive around 2338 and never recovered at this QTH.  Good music - thanx for the show!

S8 here in N. Alabama w/ lots of music by Black Label Society including one of my favorites by BLS; "Suicide Messiah".  Frequent CW IDs.  Also throwing in a little Zakk Wylde solo-ing ! (including Eruption, and the SSB).  Cover version of the Bill Withers song "Ain't No Sunshine".  Seemed to close out at 0150, after multiple CW IDs.

Thanx for the show.  I have great respect for Zakk Wylde - even beyond the work he did w/ Ozzy !

Another excellent signal and great audio here in North Alabama.  Some bozo is QRMing by moaning over your broadcast,

S9 and incredible audio and signal stability here in N. Alabama.  Three J. Geils Band songs, all of the same album:  'Insane, Insane Again", "Rage In The Cage" and "Flamethrower".  Frequent announcements by OM; "Get back to work, you slacker".  Thought I heard and ID with a "K" in callsign, but hard to tell for sure.  A few starts and stops in the audio throughout. Off, seemingly for good, at 0325 UTC.

Pounding into North Alabama at S-9 and solid as a rock!  PSE QSL

Tuned in late to the show at around 0128, nice upbeat bluesy song by Bonnie Raitt - "Three Time Loser" (a live version).  This was followed by "If I Lost You" by BB King.  At 0136 UTC, there was a "Wolverine Radio" ID by male announcer, with lots of echo effect. SSTV started soon thereafter (I'm going to get my SSTV software working someday, I promise), and transmission ended at 0138 UTC.

Always an excellent signal with great audo quality for SSB.  I bet you reach Europe again with this one!

Best of DX and 73.  PSE QSL to:  dx-tips [at] att [dot] net
