Newport Pirate Radio, 87.9 with DJ Dig-It and special guest, DJ Archie (although I only heard one person on the air). Announcer sometimes talking slowly over and in with instrumental music (as I've heard at times on FM pirates and college stations). Variety of jazz, funk, & disco + a few other things. Louis Armstrong "Jeepers Creepers," Jim Croce "Operator," Village People "In the Navy," Nena "99 Red Balloons" (German version), etc. Some periods of dead air, but sounds more like audio-to-transmitter going out because DJ doesn't mention tech problems. Nice surprise!
