Heard here in TN about an S4 via whip antenna. However, since the carrier is 500 hz off center, the pitch is shifted wrong and therefore songs are now un-shazamable. Will try to id songs as best I can.
23:31- OM talking Live commentary, "3 beers to start feeling the buzz"
23:36- HFU mention
23:40- It Just Comes and Goes by Old Man Canyon

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
