S5 peak here with drums and "XLR8" at 0010 UTC, animal sounds and a gritty "XLR8" voiceover at 0014 UTC
After a few fades, the signal at 0028 UTC is peaking at S7 now...OM with ID, into some dark sounding rock music.... :o
Hmmm...interesting tunes this evening!

0036z X-L-R-8 ID followed by what sounds like a live version of Korn's 'Got The Life' Nice S8-9 signal.
0040z X-L-R-8 ID followed by Peeping Tom's 'We're Not Alone' with ID over song @ 0045z.
0046z X-L-R-8 ID followed by Motorhead's 'King of Kings'.
0048z 'Accelerate' VO over last song.
0051z 'Accelerate' ID Followed by a song by 'Monsters & Men' or the Xx....
0058z X-L-R-8 ID.  a little weaker now, shallow fades to S6.  Also getting some buckshot from neighboring on 6960.

Thanks for the show!  Also thanks for spinning the peeping tom track, it's stuck in my head now.  Killer bass line :)

Weak signal here in Massachusetts at 0040 in usb. Heard several ID's and plenty of music but couldn't really determine what was being played. Modulation seems a bit off.
