1555: Very weak and in the noise, sounds like Eight Days a Week by the Beatles.
1600: Can't Buy Me Love by The Beatles.
1605: Yesterday by The Beatles. Followed by what sounded like "this is WREC".

Still going strong here at 1830 UTC. Signal strength is S7 here, fairly low noise, about 3kHz wide.

Been listening for about an hour. Heard the Belfast maildrop address at 1835. Show probably circa 1996-1998 based on Pamela Anderson Baywatch references and playlist.

Thanks for the broadcast.
