2152 weak signal here, but the show's just begun. Greetings comrade Dick Weed!
2153 RFW ID
2154 music, too weak to shazam at this point in time, but already stronger signal than we had a few minutes ago.
2156 it's now apparent that this is "Maneater," but think it's a cover version and not the original Hall & Oates
2157 next song
.......
2253 gaining strength, about SIO 222 at this point. Thanks for the show!
2254 HFU shoutouts, thanks for that comrades!
2258 I have to get going but I'm recording in order to play things back later. Thanks again comrades and see you soon.
