0100 "Rock Around the Clock" Bill Haley and His Comets, very good SIO 444 signal with static crashes.
0102 "See You Later Alligator" Bill Haley and His Comets
0105 Brain Brothers Pirate Radio Radio network ID (thanks to Skipmuck, I couldn't make it out on my own) into "The Twist" Chubby Checker
0107 Miss Scarlet and Professor Plum speaking
0110 "You're listening to Crapola Shortwave Pirate Radio Coast To Coast, All free, all the time" into a country song Shazam isn't identifying and I don't recognize, but I can say it features baritone OM vocals and sounds like it's from the 70s. Hoyt Axton maybe?? (edit, Skip says it's "Your Man" Josh Turner)
0114 Miss Scarlet and Professor Plum speaking
0115 Crapola Radio ID into "Ode to Billie Joe" Bobbie Gentry
              lighting is starting to strike in the area.... I may have to shut everything down.
0119 during the last song something that sounds like some kind of ute has come on and is QRM'ing the broadcast. At 0119 "I'll Take You There" Staple Sisters began
0124 "Still the Same" Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band (if there was anything between this song and the previous, I missed it because I had to lower my antenna, we're getting a strong cold front blowing through right now)
0128 skit, older YL saying "I've fallen and I can't get up" to a recording giving options and a long wait time, into Crapola Radio ID, into "Uptown Girl" Billy Joel
0131 Skit, someone calling Professor Plum on the phone asking for transmitter payment or it will be repossessed.
0133 Crapola Radio ID into Slinky ad song
0134 Miss Scarlett and Professor Plum speaking about it being a special show for his birthday. Email reports to crapolaradio@proton.me (edit, corrected what I misheard, thank goodness we have a pirate radio email address listing elsewhere)
0136 farewells and Crapola Radio ID, tone, then QRT

Decent signal here, pushing between S7-S9. Getting some mixing with the Spanish hams on operating on LSB.

A good signal here on the SDR recording, and good reception until about 0112 when the UTE started causing QRM.
