UNID 6955 USB  2220 UTC APR 16
Faint signal deep in noise, but can hear music.
Some improvement in signal. Still unable to catch ID.
0136 UTC:  Had a good steady signal for over 45 minutes now.
Still going strong.
Good signal and audio.
Thanks, XLR8.

2343 UTC OM with "XLR8"
0125 UTC I'm getting S8 peaks and then into the noise with fades...
0128 UTC "East of the River Nile"-Augustus Pablo (Now that is some unique music! :))
0134 UTC "Eggy Toast"-Mike & Rich
0142 UTC "After Dark"-Tito & Tarantula
0146 UTC "Hey Joe"-Patti Smith
0215 UTC Signal has taken a nosedive... :(

...
0225 speedy punk tune with YL vox, can't make it out well though
0227 speedy punk tune OM vox

0230 sounds like the Fluid, thanks a lot!! Can't quite name the tune though, signal's getting bad. :(
0232 I know this one though - Your Kinda Thing. !!!! (Or wait, was it "It's My Time"? Darn this interference!)
0239 off

Thanks for the show and for playing more Frantix and some Fluid!
