S8 with some fades.  Lots of mentions of Uncle Bob.  Dueling banjos.  Fair copy.
Up to S9 @ 2324 and better copy.  Still some quick fades.
Uncle Bob signing off.  Announcer mentioning this was an Uncle Bob show from back in 2000.

Heard tones, sounded like the same tones heard on 6900 in earlier broadcast.
Phone call.  Sycko ID and off @ 2335.

Signal just above the noise floor but just heard a reference to Uncle Bob so maybe a station id followed by banjo music.
