0100z: Just tuned in to hear XLR8 ID and some music, don't recognize song.  Pretty good signal.
0114z: "...typewriters... glorious future..." couldn't quite copy through static crashes.  Signal improving a bit.
0130z: Stronger signal peaks during some trip-hop kinda dance music.
0137z: XLR8 ID, "yaddayaddayadda" sound fx
0152z: Joe Jackson "I'm The Man", XLR8 ID
0240z: According to my Kindle Firefly app, I'm hearing The Bongos, "Telephoto Lens" and "Glow in the Dark".  No idea whether that's accurate.  Darned bots.
0242z: XLR8 ID
0320z: Robyn "Cobrastyle"
0327z: XLR8 ID, Tragically Hip "Little Bones"
0330z: Tragically Hip, "New Orleans is Sinking" - deep dive, barely audible now
0335z: Cavier "Tangerine Speedo" - yeah, I cheated and used Firefly app for this one.
0340z: Firefly couldn't decide whether this was The Boils "The Life for Me" or Flux of Pink Indians "Sick Butchers".  So much for smart music bots.
0343z: Ten Years After "I'd Lurv 2 Change Der World" - didn't need Firefly for this one.
0357z: Both Firefly and Shazam say Echale Salsita, Omara Portuondo.
0405z: Mika Miko "Turkey Sandwich", "With My Ducks" and "Wild Bore" - yeah, cheated again
0425z: Marvin Pontiac "Arms and Legs"
0429z: Some kinda beatnik sax and bongo stuff that stumped the music bots.
0437z: Off after final ID.

Good signal overall until around 0330z, then very unsettled conditions with sudden deep dives and rebounds to audible over usual summer QRN.

Great show, thanks for the new-to-me music.  Kinda fun hearing new stuff and the music recognition apps help.  I've actually added some lesser known musicians to my playlist after hearing 'em from various pirates.

XLR8, 6955U, 0139, 7/30/15.  Punkish song, whispered ID over the song near the end (clear though), segue to another similar song. 

S7 and somewhat noisy.

Thanks for the show!

0413utc, Sounds like punk?  Female's voice a few minutes ago.

Thank you anyway!

Edit, I pushed the attenuator button on my sdr and it made things better. Less lightning.
I also messed with my equalizer. I set it like Yamaha's natural sound gimmick for low levels.
