0049 UTC Nice audio here with Soviet Anthem in progress, then DJ Dickweed and Stefan opening announcements. Stefan wearing a tuxedo tonight and drinking a martini. RPM show with genuine 45's. Into old time radio instrumentals. Solid S9 here...
0101 UTC The audio on the song was a little jumpy at first! Seems to have settled down....

EDIT Hey DJ Dickweed...now that I've heard this particular RPM program twice, what is with the Big Butts song amidst all that old time radio music? Not sure the strip club answer covers that disparity!

Tuned in at 0102utc, fair sig, some static, excellent audio with real bass notes, slow orchestral music, big band music, Drake R8 & 7mhz dipole, also 30watt amp driving big speaker. (edit) I have some old Jackie Gleason music LPs.

I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires.

We really didn't know the sir mixalot 45 was mixed in with all those old records. That wasn't staged. We thought it was funny so we left that in the show.
