For DJ LT it's two eggs over easy, maple flavored bacon, wheat toast, OJ and freshly brewed Colombian coffee.

Hey, BBR!  About an S5 here.  Slugging down some Dunkin Donuts coffee.  Wish I could listen longer, but I'm off to judge the local elementary school Science Fair!  For breakfast, all the free donuts and bagels I can stuff into my coat pockets.

Which paper towel is best?  How does a volcano work? and so forth...

Nice signal here Mr. Boombox at 1216 UTC tune-in with ID..."This is Boombox Radio" inviting reports to the HFUnderground, into a funky sounding R&B number I believe is named "For The People", then another unid song at 1220 UTC. Solid S9 here with occasional deep fade below the noise floor, but mostly rock steady on about 6849.3 Khz ampitude modulation! I'm on my second cup of Maxwell house coffee...too early to start chowing down! I fed the cats already though...they had Friskies chicken shreds....
1228 DJ Id'ing last tune and next tune, then an electronica voiced dance tune.
1232 ID then an R&B number...{at 59 years old, I'm not good at ID'ing these modern tunes! If my niece were here, she'd be singing along with them!} signal starting to go down a bit, but still strong over the noise floor.
1239 Song with spacey intro into R&B rock dance tune ballad {shows how much I know about today's music!}
1251 BBR ID into techno ballad by man singer
1255 DJ with ID and names of songs played into techno rock sounding kind of song with man singer
1300 DJ with several ID's "Breakfast Show"...tell us what you're having for breakfast...invite to post on HFUnderground, into another techno electronica tune
1305 Song...spacey techno electronica with strange sound effects for a Saturday morning
{Signal still strong with some fading at 1315 during techno pop extended dance mix kinda song}
1330 {Finally, an English muffin with Olivio during the current extended electro-rock dance mix tune}
1335 ID as before into another dance mix...{time for Skipmuck to join the real world...thanks for the show LT! I sent an email...QSL would be nice if you get the time....I'll be doing the techno two step down the aisles of CVS shortly}
