Hmm - you are not far from me in Baltimore, I wonder why I can't hear anything there on AM or USB.

EDIT - Getting a little now though. 2307z  Glad to hear you again DickWeed.

RFW is S8 with good audio at 2226z. 45333. Some fast fading going on plus crash from poor weather in the Chicago area.

2239z - Crossfade - Cold
2308z - Chris Smolinkski's responsible for everything. LOL
