IDs @ 0012 and 0016.

Nice signal:  55444

Rock with an English feel.  Songs and artists that I don't recognize.  (But, how is that newsworthy?)

S7 peaks here in Western MA at 0014 UTC tune in...man announcer "WMID" at 0018 UTC into metal tune.
0023+ UTC man announcer "WMID", into punk metal tune
0027 UTC man announcer "WMID", into punk rock tune
Except for some fading, audio nice and clear...well above the noise here.
Off at 0033 UTC after song with some kind of talkover by man(or maybe part of the song) and ID..."WMID...all music and ID all the time"..."It was one of the worst things I ever heard on shortwave...so bad it was actually entertaining"
{That was heard at the end of the broadcast...not my comments!}
Thanks for the show tonight WMID! No clue on the names of the tunes.

Catching bits and pieces of the WMID broadcast due to heavy storm static west of QTH. When signal was up, catching rock music and it is a S7. That's about all. :-\
