S4 to S5, "Amos Moses" Jerry Reed, mostly poor copy.
2230 - "El Pizza" (El Paso parody)
2233 - "Beds Are Burning" Midnight Oil.  Listening in USB to avoid peskies.
2235 - getting weaker, and peskies are getting stronger.  Poor copy.
2238 - hearing music in the noise, Shazam says "The Unicorn" by The Irish Rovers
2240 - back up a little with "Puff The Magic Dragon" Peter Paul & Mary
2244 - band going long, barely a trace of carrier.

Fading in and out here, weak signal at best, not helped by the peskies on LSB.

2247 UTC Hearing music on AM but peskies are clobbering the signal.....
2249 UTC Switched to USB and signal in the clear but just above the noise floor with "I Believe I Can Fly"-Dave Edmunds
2252 UTC Possibly an OM said something?...then seems it QRT'd
(Reviewed the recording and with some Audacity magic was able to pull the ID out of the noise and the peskies!)
