SINPO=45343, strong full signal!

132- Tail end of OM on the mic, saying something about "if we could all live together in peace," and then "You G'damn whiner!"
132- "Lay Down Sally" by Eric Clapton.
136- OM IDs last tune, then gives mail drop address in Wellsville, NY for reception report. IDs Radio Airplane, followed by musical station ID jingle.
137- "Stay Up Late" by The Talking Heads.

145- I'm back and hearing the OM on the mic, asking for cassette recordings to the mail drop address., then musical station ID jingle again.
145- OM IDs.
146- "Barracuda Rap" maybe?, based on OM's announcement (audio clip samples repeating, over 80s sounding synth instrumental music).
148- OM back on the mic. He's sick of hearing BS Christmas music. Instead playing an antidote to that...
149- "Desperado" by Alice Cooper.
