SINPO=25332
2125- OM on the mic.
2126- "Love Reign O'er Me" by The Who.

Now SINPO=44333, very solid here! Peskies in the background, but not impacting copy.
2301- "Carry On Wayward Son" by Kansas.
2303- OM on the mic, IDing last tune and station. (A little reverb on the audio makes him harder to copy than it should be).
2305- "Keep On Loving You" by REO Speedwagon.
