2156 Hearing some weak music, it appears to be DSB not USB.
2232 Better signal now, and hearing IDs.

2223 UTC "Under Pressure"-Queen
2226 UTC OM with ID...heard "Zipper Lake", so this is Gaga!  :) , into "Right Place Wrong Time"-Dr. John
2229 UTC "Take A Chance"-Abba (OM said something in middle of the song...)
