00:55  Giving info about T shirts and a website where they are streaming their audio

Signal was S9, but has taken a deep fade now.   Band conditions not good on 41m tonight.
Sorry guys, would like to hear you on the streaming audio, but didn't catch the website.
\
I see the website for the streaming audio posted on the prior message.

Dick Weed:   The URL for the T-shirt seems to be broken.

Tuned in at 0050utc, weak signal but low noise, hear host Dickweed speaking on various topics, now playing music. R2000 & dipole.

I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

Catching RFW here at a S6 peaking at 7 and good audio talking about the T-shirt drive with The Crystal Ship on the shirt at 0112 into "Losing Touch" at 0114. How about something by INXS comrades? Thanks for the shoutout and for playing Green Day earlier in the show, sorry I missed it. :( Thanks for the show this evening!

Albert Hammond Jr?
Is he the son of Albert Hammond that sang the 70s song "It never rains in Southern California"?  Sounds like it probably is.
Play one from his father for us old farts.
