SINPO=33433 (audio muffled, so difficult to make out words, even though signal is decent here).

130- Two OMs and YL talking and reading listener letters. Occasional drumming. Give Wellsville, NY mail drop address several times. IDs here and there.
142- Recorded clips from an OM announcer with deeper voice (like from an old ad or announcement).
143- OM back and sounds like he's closing out Mailbag program, into...
143- "Turn, Turn, Turn" by The Byrds.
145- Brief silence, followed by OM quick remarks.
146- "Turn, Turn, Turn" continues.
146- OM IDs last song and Whiskey WSKY Radio. Thanks us for joining and then talks about sending letters. Someone is leaving the building. Chat among two OMs resumes.
147- Silence.
148- OM with NAPRS ID of relay and year of original broadcast.
148- OTA.
