2205- signing on S9
2206- DJ Dickweed with ID and "state of emergency snowfall show"  ;D
2207- talk about computer trouble forced them to not broadcast over the holidays
2209- ID into "Me Myself and I" tune
2221- very quickly faded away  :'(
2223- faded back in about S5 now
2226- Rage Against The Machine tune S7-8
2231- ID and back into the noise again
2233- sounds like Dickweed is taking a phone call to the RFW bunker but signal is way down into the noise now
2235- music

 Thanks for the show! Great to hear you again RFW!! :D

Coming in weakly at 22:23, DJ talking, ID, now into music that I can't recognize but sounds kind of 60s-ish.

Noisy conditions, probably due to storms in the area.

Just above the noise here at 2228 UTC with alt rock tune
2231 UTC The voice of DJ Dickweed rising in and out of the noise
2235 UTC A sort of reggae tangoesque kinda tune by YL singer
2238 UTC RFW jingle, into a rock tune OM singer
Too much noise to hear the chat between the tunes
2255 UTC Think I heard a .com in there and a "Do Whatever" then off

(Welcome back komrades!)

This was a SDR recorder catch with RFW averaging a S7 with peaks hitting S10 doing his short Snowfall Catastrophe Show playing lots of great tunes and taking requests via the bunker phone. Sounded really good here DJ Dickweed. Glad you got a girlfriend now. ;D
