Radio Free Whatever 6950 AM 0200 UTC 31 Jan 2014
« on: January 31, 2014, 0201 UTC »
S8 and good audio.  "My Delerium" by Ladyhawke @ 0200z
"Sweater Weather" @ 0213z, some fading but good copy.
"Drown" by Smashing Pumpkins @ 0219, still S7 to S9.
"Reflektor" by Arcade Fire @ 0231z.  Audio seems lower but still S8.  Deeper fades now, down to S5.
"So Alive" @ 0247.  Still S8 with audio getting lower and lower.  Still fades to S5.
ID @ 0259z.  Down to S6 with fades to S4, so only fair copy now.  
ID @ 0316z and into "Trying to be Cool". S5 to S6.
