2228 UTC "Welcome to Radio Free Whatever..Rrrr P Mmmm", into another tune
2231 UTC An echo voiced Dickweed & Stavin ID'd songs played and next one coming up..."young and tight" :o, into "When You Were a Tulip"

2238 UTC "RPM", then the signal disappeared.... ???

S3 to S5 here, but able to hear some ragtime music. Heard the Radio Free Whatever earlier. I suspect the signal will improve as the grayline gets closer. Thank you for the broadcast :)

Caught RFW on the SDR recorder with a initial S6 at 2220 but dropped to a S3-4 later in Dickweeds "RPM show. Many ID's through out show with Big Band type music be played like Davy Crockett. Thanks for the shows guys! ;D
