S9 +10 here in Western MA with superb audio and Andy Walker "Before They Were Famous" on Channel Z.  "You're On My Mind", then ID and "What You Trying To Do With My Heart"-early Robert Plant vocal.
Nice to hear this one again "Z"!!! Armchair quality reception so I'm going to enjoy it and forego further postings. :)

Heard here 0n 6.264.15 at excellent level (no headphones necessary and limited knob tuning) since 2122.Really Enjoying Andy Walker's Before They Were Famous program, especially Elton John with Bluesology, Neil Young with The Squires (not sure if AW mentioned that Rick James was in that group with Neil Young) and The Sultan, and The Quarrymen covering That'll be The Day.
