SINPO=45444

2217- "Private Eyes" by Hall and Oates.
2219- "Rock Steady" by The Whispers.
2223- "Cold Hearted" by Paula Abdul.

2228- State Anthem of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
2229- DJ DW said we may have been confused by the 80s tune, which he plays to sooth himself...Necessary, as we was in the bunker and made a mistake with a transceiver.

S7 here with Paula Abdul tune at 2227 followed by the Communist Internationale.

"The '80s Honeypot Edition"

2248 Mentions HFU posters including Blue Max (thanks) then plays the dick song for Chris L
0001 DJDW with shoutouts to HFU, says band conditions are iffy and its good to know he's getting out
0047 DJDW discusses his passionate views on women's sports
Still going here at 0104; signal has dropped somewhat to about an S5 and noise level has crept up but still quite listenable.
0133 OFF; straight into WTF Radio broadcast

Thanks for the broadcast!

I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires.
