I've been listening to this Radio Merlin relay since "Hold Your Head Up" by Argent and I'm enjoying the excellent mix of classic rock tunes and quite a few I haven't heard before! Pleasant mix and excellent AM audio as usual! Thanks Radio Merlin and 5150 relay! I have never heard Radio Merlin direct...
Some hilarious fake ads too!
2136 UTC Op said closing down..."Leave you with Keith Emerson", followed by "The Church".
2142 UTC "Blood"-Michael C Hall
