Got it here too, pretty weak though.  I can pull the melody out, and maybe an occasional word, but that's it.

I youtubed '0238 - Here In Spirit Jim James per shazam' and that sounds like what I heard....Thanks Hellicaster and JoeFlips!
Some cool sounding alternative rock!

Unfortunately, lost to the noise about 300z and it never did recover.

Thanks for the show!

UnId, 6950 USB, 0240, 8/5/17.  Light pop sounding music.

S5 and rather noisy QRN make listening difficult.

SDR recording catch, appears to have started broadcast at 0228 and QRT at 0320. S8-S9 but fighting a high noise floor. Thanks for the show!

Heard from 0228- UTC on the SDR recording.
0228 OM said something, but I could not quite decipher it. (This was a bit stronger than the music that followed, so perhaps it was a pesky or someone else)
0229 Into music. Generally an SIO 322, quite a bit of static from nearby thunderstorms.
0304 Had to pull the antennas due to storms.
