2210 UTC ID followed by a cover of "Linger"-OM singers...solid S9 and the usual excellent audio
2214 UTC Unid song
2222 UTC DJDW chatting, followed by "I Don't Know What Christmas Is" (Xmsn break at 2223 UTC?)
2226 UTC Back up again
2230 UTC Sounds like a cover or parody of Piano Man...maybe a Christmas version?
2234 UTC Thanks for the shoutout!
2315 UTC Signal dropped from S9 down to S4....OTH radar is now intruding on the signal
2317 UTC Band has gone long for me  :(
