Just signing on now, S9 signal. The comrades mentioned how cold it was getting, and said their bunker smells like pit beef.

Soviet Anthem at 0010 UTC with S9+ signal here! 0011 UTC with a hearty Greetings Radio Comrades, mention of the bunker being fortified with a furnace and it smelling like pit beef (Hmmm...maybe make some of those sandwiches that Chris Smol has for an avatar ;D)
0019 UTC "Losing My Religion"-cover version by some sultry voiced lady
0023 UTC "Golden Age?"-Beck (sounds somewhat reminiscent of Wild Horses by the Stones!)
0038 UTC "White Rabbit"-Very interesting modern cover version!
0057 UTC Signal strength just dropped down to S5 here.... :(
0003 UTC The band has gone long here...signal buried in the noise :'(
