I used to know a guy from Morrison, Colorado. He was a buddy of Charlie Kane. He knew what "rosebud" was.

Hippy-dippy stuff. I wonder if Mountain Girl was waiting in the wings with insulin and heroin for Capt. Trip's at this show? I knew a tobacco heiress that blew her entire trust fund in the 70's chasing these guys. Ended up living in a shack. It was so groovy.

SINPO 35333 at home in California this afternoon. A little lighter than is acceptable to me for pleasurable listening. Much better on the big SDRs (KPH, KFS and Northern Utah) with much bigger and better antennas than little old me.

Grateful Dead tunes. (Spark one up, boys.) I'm something other than a Dead Head but I recognize "Terrapin Station" at 2135 UTC.
2150 - Remake of "Werewolves of London".
2200 - Off after ID.

Thunder Chicken or should it be renamed Thunder Turkey?

2150 - Op notes that "Thunder Chicken" is a term for a turkey. OK, noted, but my counterpoint is that most of your SSTV images over the past months have been of chickens and the "cluck, cluck" that you drop in between songs occasionally would be quite an odd turkey sound.  ;D
