On at 0020z with interval signal and ID, into music.  "Makin' Whoopie" at 0032.

S9+20 signal, almost sounds like a commercial broadcaster.

0112z: "Listen to Franklin D. Roosevelt", sounds like parody version of "Daisy, Daisy"
0119z: ID, germanycalling at gmail dot com, sounds like sign-off, Deutschland über alles
0122z: "Germany calling" repeated x3 or x4, more music, "Makin' Whoopie" another seizin' of neighbor's borders, another reason for makin' blitzkrieg.
0131z: Fairly strong peak here at home, clear "Germany calling" repeated IDs audible via barefoot portable indoors, then faded again

Only occasionally audible here at home, fair to good via remote tuner in KY.  When signal fades in KY, it seems to peak briefly here at home.

Nifty theme and concept.  Coincidentally I was just reading about Joyce/Lord Haw-Haw recently, related to a search about Vonnegut's Mother Night.

Just received eQSL via "germanycalling_at_gmail.com"

Thank you for your signal report, and the audio!
Resistance is futile.  An eQSL is attached.

Program material of 'Germany Calling' is intended to accurately illustrate certain facets of one of the darkest periods and regimes in the history of the world.
It is expected, even intended, that the content, when clearly understood, may induce disgust, revulsion, and perhaps chills, upon the listening audience of today.  While the clumsiness of some of the propoganda may afford some small amusement, the program is not intended to 'entertain' and is not intended to be 'funny'.
All program material was obtained from historical archives.  Transmission of the program is not meant to convey or imply approval by station personnel, of the content or of the historical Nazi regime or its ideologies; and particularly not the anti-semitic content in some of the musical numbers or elsewhere.  On the other hand, if the program induces any feelings of anger, disgust, revulsion, or even horror, we will have succeeded.
