0134  'Gettting Down Tonight' - KC and the Sunshine Band; sudden signal improvement from S = 2 to S=3; 'Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me' - Elton John, 'I Won't Back Down' - Tom Pe;tty, ID, then signal fades into UnId (by Shazam) song.

Started S=2, improved to S=3 for a while, then faded back down.  Noisy frequency.
