Identifying as The Brain Brothers Shortwave Pirate Radio Network followed by ad for cleaning gutters, 2209 UTC "Here Comes Santa Claus" followed by another station ID mentioning 8905 on your shortwave dial. 2213 UTC a woman sang "Silver Bells". Thanking listeners on HF Underground reports at 2215 UTC. Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" at 2218 UTC. Nice signal.
