Been listening since 0008 UTC tune-in.  About an S9 here in NY.  Now at 0019 many congratulatory messages for PRB and CL.  Very well deserved PRB!  George Strait song at 0024 for Harry Smith.

Tuned in via the NE Pennsylvania SDR. Sounds good there, but some static crashes or something affecting it. Congrats on 25 years, and sorry that I'm hearing this for the first time tonight.  ;D
