0000 Just tuned in to weak SSTV, then mx
0008 sounds like Morricone?  For a Few Dollars More?
0010 A Fistful of Dollars?
0016 CW ID, then SSTV w/ poor copy here; may have been the Man with No Name
0018 AC/DC I think; signal is near the floor*

Thanks AR!

* The resonant loop is temporarily down and forced to use the active whip tonite,  It's not even close...
