I'm getting some weak fadey music here at 2109 UTC tune in...
2115 UTC RFW ID! Wow, the Subject box corrected all by itself! Thanks Chris S!
Signal strength is up and down like a yo-yo here....strange prop indeed.
2125 UTC Signal seems to be picking up a bit now...clean audio!
2128 UTC DJ Dickweed and Assistant Stefan/Steven/Stephen ID'ing the previous tunes (New Pornographers and Veruca Salts)
{Without sounding too patronizing, you comrades play a lot of cool songs I never heard before and do the right thing by identifying them for us old folk whose musical tastes were overdeveloped in the 60's and the 70's}
2139 UTC ID's previous song by Rammstein and next song by Bob Mould-"I Don't Know You Anymore"
2151 UTC A skit with lots of bleeps....
(Propagation is still kinda sketchy here...deep fades followed by S8 signal...must be some kind of proton bombardment by the Auroral Deity)
2209 UTC "Until Next Time...Do Whatever"
Thanks for the Sunday afternoon matinee!

RFW ID at 2115z. Very strange, I was listening to my recording of RFW from last night, when this popped up.

These type RFW shows are usually featuring mostly music that even me and Assistant Stavin (Stephen) never knew about. As you can tell we both LOVE many, many types of music and like to pass our discoveries of what we feel to be the best of the newer tracks on to the listeners of RFW. That's why we try to name every song we play for the listeners. Glad you enjoy the shows and if any of our shows have ever gotten someone to go out and buy a CD or download new music because they had to have a song we helped them discover that's a great thing. That's what it's all about.
