Weak but audible here near Seattle ...

0134 UTC: "You Really Got Me" by The Kinks.
0136 UTC: Female-voiced Radio 48 via Mix Radio International ID.
0137 UTC: Remix of "Tiny Dancer" by Elton John.
0139 UTC: After another ID, "Black Velvet" by Alannah Myles.
0142 UTC: Another ID, then "Blue Monday" cover or remix (didn't sound like the '90s cover by Orgy).
0145 UTC: Radio 48 ID, then RMI ID, followed by "Fly Me to the Moon" remix.
0152 UTC: "Smalltown Boy" cover/remix by unknown artist (I had to feed our dog upstairs, so I missed a song or two).
0155 UTC: Female-voiced MRI ID, then Radio 48 ID, then "Green Onions" by Booker T. and The M.G.s. The signal's still audible here, but still weak.
0158 UTC: "You're listening to Radio 48, the station that dares to be different." That was followed by "Speedy Gonzales" by Van Edelsteyn and Pat Boone.
0200 UTC: Radio 48 and MRI IDs again, followed by "Mony Mony" cover by Billy Idol. The audio's down to nearly nothing now here, unfortunately.
0206 UTC: "Mony Mony" rose up again a bit (this song's too long!), but still very weak. Could hear just a bit of the female-voiced MRI ID around 0207 UTC.
0210 UTC: "The Hardest Time" by The Sunset Radio as the signal rose up again.

Thanks for the music, Radio 48 and MRI!
