SINPO=34222 (but with muffled audio, so hard to copy here).
2305- OM speaking. IDs something "W...RX" I think.
2306- Recorded OM commercial for a movie.
2306- OM parody commercial with music in background.
2306- YL host welcomes audience to a program Radio After Dark. "A round table debate with some of the finest DXers." Panelists discussing comedic SW topics.
2313- Outro music as show takes a break.
2314- OM with PSA about drownings in a canal.
2314- Music, into YL speaking about NYC.

Now SINPO=34322 (with clearer audio quality, but a bit more fading).
2351- "Halloween" by Japan.
2353- "Dead Man's Party" by Oingo Boingo.
0000- YL host of Radio After Dark starts to thank listeners, but then cuts off and various audio clips with music in background.
0001- OM "Welcome to Radio Free America."
0001- "Under The Stars" by Morning Parade.

2346 UTC: "Monster" by Fred Schneider/B-52s.
2349 UTC: "Halloween" by Japan.
2354 UTC: "Dead Man's Party" by Oingo Boingo (sounds like a remix or extended version; I know this song well!)
