XLR8 6955 USB 2 Sept 2015 0100- UTC

0100z: Ditto, Led Zep "Communication Breakdown", around S5 peaks here.  Some QRM, might be local RFI.
0103z: Signal much weaker, sounds like Wishbone Ash "Jailbait"
0109z: Frank Zappa "Dirty Love", signal peaking stronger again.
0115z: Blue Cheer "Fruits and Veggies".  Acid rock.  Far out, mannn...
0122z: Toad "Electric Rider".  Heavy, dude.
0129z: Off or dead air.
0130z: They're baaa-aaack...
0132z: XLR8 ID
0134z: Motels "Danger".  Ahhh, Martha.  I remember this one well.
0139z: Wiped out by heavy local RFI in my neighborhood now.  Good while it lasted, thanks!
0225z: XLR8 ID, Paul Westerberg "Waiting For Somebody", local RFI a bit lower now.
0255z: Firefly sez Phil Tangent "Lunar"
0257z: Cream "Pressed Rat and Warthog"
0305z: Magazine "The Light Pours Out of Me"
0307z: Melanie "Brand New Key"
0310z: XLR8 ID, Tito & Tarantula "After Dark"
0325z: The Orb "The Truth Is"
0425z: Snivelling Shits "I Can't Come" - S7 peaks after long fade out to barely audible
0430z: The Crucifucks "Go Bankrupt and Die", Johnny Warman "Automatic Kids", Crass "White Punks on Hope", The Pigs "Youthanasia" (XLR8 ID during song)
0450z: Hilarious gal singer punk cover of "Body Count - Cop Killer", "I'm Freaky", several more songs by same gal.  Chatter between songs, sounds like unedited studio takes and chatter with producer/board op.  Good stuff.
0527z: Same gal singing rant about Guns 'n' Roses.  Hilarious, who is this?  Kinda reminds me of some of the great lo-fi stuff by the Deal sisters, and on Breeders' "Last Splash"
0542z: Same gal's album, seems to be looping, hearing same songs as about an hour ago.  "This is why we don't play live on the air." Variation of the "Girls in France Hoochie Coochie dance" song based on "The Streets of Cairo" supposedly written by Sol Bloom for the 1893 Chicago World's Fair.
0552z: And she has a monster truck.
0600z: XLR8 ID, Tubes "White Punks on Dope" intro, then into another song
0605z: XLR8 ID and off or dead air.

Some bzzzttt-bzzzttt and grumbling noises, only hearing during songs, may be transmission or audio glitches?  Will upload recording to archive page later.

Signal up and down throughout, from barely audible to S7 peaks, clear after local RFI settled down.  Audio problems seemed resolved after 0130z or so.  Generally stronger signal after 0500z.
