WEAK 6930 U
« on: December 13, 2010, 0416 UTC »
WEAK is on at 0357z with some rather non-traditional Christmas tunes.  IDs 0359, 0402, 0409.

0405z "Humpin' Santa, always humpin' to please"
0409  "Merry merry Christmas, happy happy Christmas"
0412 "Hooray for Santa Claus"
0417  Sounds like a MIDI version of Jingle Bells
0423  California Dreamin' - Mamas & Papas  I hear ya WEAK, 20s tonight and teens for the next couple.
0436  Because the Night (Belongs to Lovers) - Patti Smith, great tune!
0440  Buddy Joe - Golden Earring
0449  Leavin' Again - Savoy Brown.
0456  ID, Good Morning Little Schoolgirl - Ten Years After

Still going at 0600z,  Angry Eyes - Loggins & Messina, peaking S9+!
 
Variable signal tonight, S6 - S9, the usual nice audio.  Cool selection of music tonight.

Happy Holidays, WEAK!

Maybe the "W--- Radio" station I heard this morning here in W. Europe.

But it sounded like 2 stations were on, so nothing clear. A station played the US anthem at 6.48 UTC, then I heard only one station with also a "W---" ID at 6.50 and nothing more at 6.51. (Just before the anthem, I also heard about "Electric Prunes", and a "POB", in the mess).
