Tuned in at 2345utc, fair sig, big band tune "blue skies", ID as Radio Casablanca, said radiocasablanca1@gmail.com (?), audio clip from the movie "Casablanca", song "maginot line", now sounds like Sirley Temple, R2000 & dipole. (edit at 0109) Le Marseilles at 0100utc then off. BTW, I was watching 60 minutes and doing laundry at the same time I was listening to this stn so I didn't hear everything. (2nd edit) I just emailed him at radiocasablanca1@gmail.com and it hasn't bounced.
