Good copy but static and fading galore. S5, 35233

1919 - Dog Day Afternoon - 1975 American crime drama film.  The film stars Al Pacino, John Cazale, Charles Durning, Chris Sarandon, Penelope Allen, James Broderick, Lance Henriksen and Carol Kane. The title refers to the sultry "dog days" of summer.
1923 - character "FBI Agent Sheldon"
1927 - character "Sal"
1930 - character "Sonny"
1934 - characters talking about going to Algeria

see Wikipedia - Dog Day Afternoon - for additional plot line.

2011 - The Wizard of Oz - 1939 film
2017 - Somewhere over the Rainbow (Judy Garland)
2059 - end of movie / no ID given / off air? :(


Thanks for the show and new one !

Nice signal now S3+ with only occasional burst of static. Still playing audio from the Wizard of Oz at 2051z.
Off at 2059z.
