2144 UTC OM and YL with ID, addy, "Show number 17", into that song I hear all the time by YL singer with lots of Da Da Da Da's....I used to know who did this....hmmm
(Thanks jFarley! "Tom's Diner"-Suzanne Vega...As usual you come through with the info :))

2148 UTC "Room to Move"-John Mayall (There's a bit of chicka chicka in this one ;D) Well, in the long version anyway...
2151 UTC OM with email addy, lots of cawing, email addy's and then ominous bells tolling....I think there are 13 of them....
2153 UTC OM and YL with ID's and email addy..extended jingle...Show number 17..etc, etc

Sounded like an ID @ 2100.  Signal looks good on the waterfall, but noisy copy.  Then "Elenore" by The Turtles.
2133 - "Ghostriders in the Sky" song.
