0038 Got it here in Denver with a fair and clean signal. Sounds like Mozart but I'm not willing to bet anything on it.
0039 OM announcing music, just weak enough that it's hard for my damaged ears to make out
0040 Just heard an announcement for an FM station, 99.5 W something. Relay of someone's local classical station?
0042 more solo piano classical music, sounds like a late 19th century composer.
0044 clearly heard WCRB called. Seems to be a relay like I thought.
0044 suddenly cut out and became recent era soul music.
0045 marine weather forecast
0045 heartland rock now
0046 political talk. Heard them say something about primarying Cory Gardner, one of my state's US senators
0047 music
0052 back to the classical station

I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires.
