0011 Faint signal but not much noise. Should get better soon.
0021 The Cars, I forget the song title. Improved signal but more noise now.
0101 Getting better, able to zero the BFO again. If you're taking requests, could you play something by the Effigies?
0124 The Damned "Smash It Up" one of my all time favorites
0131 XLR8 ID
0132 Bad Brains "Don't Bother Me" another great tune
0135 Flux of Pink Indians "Left Me to Die"
0137 The Dicks "Hate the Police" another classic
0139 Misery Addict "100 Years" *
0144 The Dils "Class War" yet another great one
0145 The Dils "Mr. Big"
0147 XLR8 ID into The Pagans "What's This Shit Called Love"  ;D
0150 Anti Pasti "No Government"
0154 XLR8 ID into The Proletariat "Bread and Circus"
0156 The Varukers "Led to the Slaughter" another great one
0158 Shattered Faith "I Love America"
0201 don't know this one. Neither does Shazam. But it sounds good.
0204 I feel like I should know this one but can't name it.
0207 The Epileptics "Two Years Too Late" *
0210 XLR8 ID into "We're Da Machine" The Effigies. Thanks!!  ;D
0212 The Effigies "No Progress"
0214 The Effigies "Quota" I have a feeling what the next song's gonna be. :)
0216 The Effigies "Techno's Gone" Thanks for playing the entire EP XLR8!
0217 my cup truly runneth over - The Effigies "Body Bag"
0220 Really Red "Procrastination" whoops, turns out Skipmuck is right. How did I mess that up?
0221 Angry Samoans "Lights Out"  ;D
0223 Bad Religion "We're Only Gonna Die" they were so good early on
0225 MDC "Radioactive Chocolate"
0226 Frantix "Dancin' to Punk" Denver represent, yo.
0229 Franitx "FM Ear"
0231 Butthole Surfers "American Woman" YES - but sounds like a remix?
0240 Dayglo Abortions "Scientology" great pick
0241 One I don't know.
0244 XLR8 ID into "Seven and Seven Is" for Skipmuck
0247 The Exploited "Barmy Army" I think? One band that never quite grabbed me
0250 don't know this one.
0254 Testament "Trail of Tears" *   time to change it up a bit, huh?
0301 The Jam "Going Underground"
0327 That one song by RHCP
0330 Fang "Skinheads Smoke Dope" awesome
0332 nice guitar song
0334 XLR8 ID into what sounds like "you're like three blind mice, three blind mice, three blind mice."
0337 Dicks "Shit On Me" nice one
0339 The Ex "Cells"
0342 GG Allin "Up Against the Wall" *
0343 Black Randy and the Metrosquad "Sperm Bank Baby" Pass the dust
0344 XLR8 ID into some classic tune that I just don't know.
0345 Another good tune unknown to me
0346 something that sounds like "CIO"
0348 another song. I think this one and the previous three are all by the same band... I think they're saying "government" on this one.
0349 a very short song
0350 the next song
0351 and the one after that
0353 Sham 69 "Sunday Morning Nightmare" oh yes
0357 signal has suddenly dropped below the noise floor
0408 Sniff 'n' The Tears, "Driver's Seat" *
    Signal is back in a big way. S9 now - it hasn't been much above S3 all night.
0413 OFF. Too bad, the signal got really good and the noise finally dissipated. But awesome show tonight. Really awesome.

* shazam'd

Thanks for the show! A real trip back 30 or so years. Thanks for playing all the stuff I requested previously.

Coming up on four hours. Can we go for five?  ;D
