I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

0013 faint signal in Denver, which is too bad because I love me some Angry Samoans.
0015 signal improving, still not much in the way of usable audio but reason for hope that there will be.
0021 Sounds like an old delta blues song, but hard to be certain
0026 Audio came up. Chuck Berry, "Back in the USA"
0127 back from dinner and it's XLR8! "Brave New World" Reagan Youth
        signal's taken a bit of a dive, audible under the noise floor
0140 switching over to Jersey Shore SDR, just in time for new blues tune
0143 "Guru" Oh-OK
0147 XLR8 ID into Poison Idea "Steel Rule" Thanks!!
0150 "Alien Boy" Wipers (great pick!)
0153 XLR8 ID into song by Minutemen, can't place which one
0156 another Minutemen song. Frequency starting to be hammered by OTHR
0157 "When I Arrive" We The People
        copyable in Colorado again as of 0200
0201 "Too Many Chiefs, Not Enough Indians" Brant Bjork
0218 back! "I Just Wanna Puke On The Stereo" Frumpies
0220 "Girl Soldier" Bikini Kill
0225 "Kill The DJ" Peeping Tom feat. Massive Attack
0229 XLR8 ID into "Chickenshit" John Cale
0233 Someone's groaning their cover of "Beat It"
0236 unknown artist covering Kraftwerk's "Pocket Calculator"
0238 "Gettin' High in the Morning" Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
0239 new track, shazam not liking it, but it's rock with OM yelling "hi" or "hey" a lot.
0244 "Dancin' to Punk" Frantix (Denver!!)
0247 "Baby" Suburban Lawns (Thanks!!)
0251 Big Black I can't remember what this song is called "Newmangenerator" (I have it on my iPod and looked it up - the OTHR fits it pretty well)
0254 "All Too Clear" Numbskull
0256 XLR8 ID into "Amerika First" The Gizmos
0258 "I Bizarro" The Bizarros
0300 " Patti Smith" Half Japanese
0303 "World War 3" The Rats
0305  XLR8 ID into "No Tears" Tuxedomoon (nice pick)
0308 "Border Country" Swell Maps
0311 "They're Guilty" The Endtables
0315 "Cosmetic Plague" 98 Mute
0316 "The Fun Is Over" Flux of Pink Indians
0318  new song, shazam's not helping, sounds very early 80's
0320  new song, punk rock with YL vox
0321  another song that shazam refuses to identify, lo-fi punk with OM vox, guitar, drums, and no bass from the sound of it
0323 "Molar System" Arab On Radar
0326  XLR8 ID into new song, punk with YL vox apparently recorded live
0328 "World Shut Your Mouth" Julian Cope
   
I'm going to get off to bed. Thanks for epic show! Too bad that I needed a web SDR for most of it, but that's how the propagation cookie crumbles sometimes.

Thanks for the show!  ;D
