0241 UTC I'm hearing an OM speaking very low in the noise. Not even sure of the language, but it does not sound like a peskie...the cadence of the OM's speech is not Spanish or Portuguese
0250 UTC OM still speaking...possibly a commentary?
0257 UTC A low level fade up...the OM is speaking in English
0303 UTC OM still talking...possibly reading a book? Signal is barely moving the S-meter at peaks.
0305 UTC Faded up a bit...still rough copy, but I believe he's definitely reading a book
0318 UTC Piano music now...sounds classical
0321 UTC Signal dropped out...not sure if still on
0330 UTC Tuned back again and I'm hearing more classical piano music just above the noise floor
0342 UTC Still hearing the OM reading a story, but mostly very deep in the noise.
(Time to call it a night here!)

Thank you for the broadcast! I wish I had better reception. Any chance of an email or HFU message as to the name of the story?  8)
