Sounds like the same show as we had a couple of weeks ago - Soundgarden @ 03:09z followed by Queensryche @ 03:14z and DW talking about loosing his virginity. The important thing is that I can hear RFW much better than I did back then, so I am enjoying it even more!

Although its well into daylight here, RFW is a really stunning signal!

Thank you for transmitting the show, Guys.
