Pop & Irish folk music. Fair sig & I hope levels pick up a bit. Great to hear this--program might be about 40 years old if it's from before it was busted the 1st time.

I was going to say I used to relay JRRI nearly twenty years ago. Nice to know the stuff is still floating around, the op was a great guy.

By JRRI, you mean the Irish station? He is a good guy, but I think this relay was the station from Bloomington, IN, from the late '70s & again around '82
