Nice clear S8 signal here at 2215 UTC tune-in with James Stewart talking about flying an airplane, into Tommy Dorsey instrumental. Minor fading. Mr. Stewart seems to be having a great time here! Live time checks, on the spot decisions what to play....that's what I call a spontaneous broadcast! Mairzy oats and dozy doats.......
2323 UTC song "I'd Like to be a Pirate", Star Spangled Banner, then off 2325 UTC
Thanks for the "oldies" show Jimmy Stewart!
