S8 here, fair copy.  Some yo-ho-ho song.
WREC ID @ 0055.  Sounds like a re-play of one of their old shows.
Down to S4 and poor copy @ 0128.

0130 Full ID by male and female, including addresses for qsl. Pseudo-commercials. The spoken words seem better modulated than the music. S7-8 with slight fading.

WREC when I first tuned in was so strong that I thought it was a Euro - realised very quickly that it wasn't!

Thanks for the show!

Choppy signal here but it improved as the show went on. A lot of noise in this part of the band. SIO 333

I became convinced in the 90's I lived a WREC free zone. People heard them all around the region, not me, nada. Finally, proof that WREC really does exist in forms besides others off air recordings!
