2245 Dickweed talking, said no one has noticed him on the air yet, started up a song. SIO 222.
2251 Dickweed happy to be back on the air. We're happy to hear you as well!  Contemplating going lower in frequency
2300 Up to an SIO 333 now.
2325 Still a good signal here, perhaps SIO 444 on peaks. Dickweed - don't touch that dial!  8)

2306 really coming in now... "Host Body" Chad VanGaleen per Spotify
2310 RFW ID spot into "Tattered" Delicate Steve

2325 RFW ID into "Skim Milk" Flasher
