Fair signal here tonight at 2328 UTC tune in with "Get Off Of My Cloud"-Rolling Stones in progress. Signal varies widely with moderate fading and pesky on LSB. S7 at peaks and great audio. "Time Warp" program with "This Diamond Ring"-Gary Lewis & the Playboys, "Downtown"-Petula Clark,..."California Girls"-Beach Boys, "You've Lost That Loving Feeling"-Righteous Brothers.
(Nice to hear some good old 60's tunes DJ Dickweed! The RFW library seems to have grown considerably!)
