0038: Nice signal Wolverine!!! Solid 59 + 5 db over.
Bunny Berigan, "A Melody From The Sky."
Into Marty Robbins, "Riders In the Sky." (Ghost)
0042: The Moody Blues, "Voices In The Sky."
0046: Wolverine Radio I.D. into Eric Burdon & The Animals, "Sky Pilot."  Great Tune !!!
0057: stepped away from radio to find, The Allman Brothers Band, "Blue Sky."  Excellent Tune !!!
0102: Yes, "South Side Of The Sky."  Audio sounds off a little on this song, sometimes that happens with Yes.
With Yes, I think the audio is so old, that it does not come over the air correctly.  This is only what I have noticed.  I love Yes.
0109: Neil Young, "See The Sky About To Rain." Very nice Audio on this one!!!
0114: Wolverine Radio I.D.
Thanks for the show Wolverine, time to do my own thing.
