Dirty rotten ratsofratz, as a childhood friend of mine used to say.  Tried tuning it in but had the same problem as last year- the Halloween show conditions are fair to good, but come Dec. things have changed to where I can barely hear it.  Had sent Redhat a copy of The Lutefisk Lament last year which I might have requested had I been able to hear it.  Any idea if he's going to do another show between now and Christmas?

Considering conditions were not the best, here is an MP3 aircheck of the show recorded from the console.  Please note that once an official recording has been posted, logs will no longer be accepted.

Thanks all for tuning in!
