Don't know if same station but heard @ 0257 some blues singing and guitar, short pause then into soft rock ballad "Wake Me Up with Amnesia"(?) then gone @ 0302. Fair signal but readable.
Just a boy with his radio and some wire.

QSLs always appreciated.

First noted at 0229 on the SDR recording with "Chase"? Then later heard "White Rabbit". About an SIO 333.
