0157Z Fair copy to the west coast. Not terribly strong...maybe S1 to S2 on the FT-2000 but good copy due to low noise at my end. Thanks for the show, RFW!!

Very impressive S9/+20 dB signal and audio in NY.  Tuned in around 0204 when song titles were mentioned, followed by "Christopher Columbus".  Really enjoying the old time music.
