Not real strong here, hearing B-52's "Channel Z" at 0232.  S8 over a S7 noise floor, but audible.

Testing out a resonant loop antenna that showed up this week.

S-on at 2321utc with jazzy version from around 1970 of "Also Spracht Zarathustra", then pop/rock, announcers voices hard to hear, Big Ben chimes at 2337, Kenwood R-2000 7mhz dipole, 20miles (32km) northwest of downtown Chicago. Update at 2341, just noticed it's in AM, not USB, my mistake, fair/poor. Update at 0037, S-off with merry melodies theme music.

Great oldies, 1950's. S7-S9 here, Good audio amongst some static hits. Good show. Thank-you.

I don't know when this recording was made but it's a great history lesson on early Brit rock & roll...

Here with nice signal, but some static crashes. Sounds like I'm hearing a het or slow CW in there, too. Nice to hear AW back on
Thanks to CZ & AW,

First time to hear Channel Z radio.  Heard ID and B-52s song "Channel Z" followed by lots of IDs and lots of great music with the Andy Walker host.  Heard sign off at 00:35.  Thanks for the show I really enjoyed it and please QSL to morrisgarage770@.com  Reciever was a Drake R8 with 120' longwire signal was a S5 which was just above the noise but the great audio powered through.
