Catching The Crystal Ship sailing in here on 6950 AM with a big S9 with peaks to S15. Doing their Bubblegum Express Show which I have heard before and enjoy it very much. Caught ID at 2343 into songs like Green Tambourine, Yummy Yummy, Sugar Sugar, I Am A Believer and others. Thanks for the show this evening JP and the Relay for broadcasting it! ;D

Very poor signal just barely above the noise (S3) to Vancouver Island. I heard a Tarzan yell at 0025, and music after, but I can't be sure what it is. "Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes", maybe?
