Barnyard Radio with big signal from 2244-0048 UTC on 6930 USB.  Lots of comedy sketches including George Carlin's "Wonderful WINO Radio", Don Rickles with Johnny Carson on Tonight Show, Bob & Doug McKenzie "Great White North" sketch from SSTV, Steve Martin "Let's Get Small", others.  Dr. Octagon "Earth People" song, other novelty tunes.  Commentary from station op Chuck Manson interspersed throughout show.  Barnyard Radio has some fairly long, elaborate ID's that sound very professional, or done using audio clips edited for this station, including "It's vulgar and obscene. X-rated radio. Barnyard Radio."  Overall SINPO - 43333, tho' noise from static crashes and local RFI increased after dark.  Signal hovered around S5-S7 with some S9 peaks on an indoor antenna.
