2153 UTC I have some easy listening instrumental music here fading in and out of the noise floor. Very nice audio and mostly above the noise.
2200 UTC Shazam isn't IDing the song or artist, but I recognize "Love Is Blue"  :)
2202 UTC A more upbeat song with La La La's (Signal up to S7 peaks now)
2205 UTC "Them From Rio Bravo(Deguello)"-Soundtrack & Theme Orchestra per Shazam
2209 UTC "The Good, The Bad, & the Ugly"-Hollywood Studio Orchestra per Shazam
2210 UTC Signal is back to just above the noise floor
2219 UTC "Basin Street Blues"-Vienna Pops Symphony Orchestra per Shazam
2221 UTC Sounds like the theme song to "A Few Dollars More"
2223 UTC "Good Night Ladies"-Artist unknown

I recorded my reception. If the op sees this I would gladly send you an mp3 recording! Please QSL!  :)

Thank you very much koma! I will send a reception report and audio recording I made to the email address and maybe the operator will reply to me with a Zeppelin Radio eQSL! I have not yet received a QSL from a Greek free radio station!  :)
