Radio Ga-Ga, 2-8-14, *2300-2331*, 6.925 FM, sounded like someone in fm mode.  signal report S4 to S7.  heard "she drives me crazy" by the fine young cannibals, hearing "cover of the rollin' stone" at 2312 all in FM mode....whoa....temporarily jumped up to S9 +25 at 2320! Clear ID at 2325.....Radio Ga-Ga.  Hearing "Day Tripper" at 2328.  off after announcer talk at 2331.

Could be. Tough copy here.

Sounds like Day Tripper at 2328. But really poor copy here. The signal is not bad, so in USB this would sound great.

23012- 2330  Very rough copy.  Could tell there was music and talk, but couldn't make out anything specific.
