Solid S8 signal with great modulation here at 1557 UTC tune-in on apx 6948.2 KHZ. Rock song into ID at 1558 then a techno-rock tune. Canned ID at 1602 with woman and English accented announcer...email address. More techno-pop.
1606 Dick Weed ID'd the previous songs and the next one...humorous banter about the names of the songs, into pop tune.
1616 "Heaven Beside You"-Alice In Chains, canned ID into grunge tune {Still S6-S7, but noise creeping in}
1625 Dick Weed and the other guy with T-Shirt plug and comments, into canned ID by woman/man at 1627...off abrupt at 1628.
