No signal out west but very solid on Westminster MD kiwi SDR. OM with Radio Olah ID at 1541 UTC into music.
1547 "All the Young Dudes"
1550 OM on the mic talking about the songs played and the Super Bowl
1554 next song
1559 OM on the mic. Hit the top of the hour for the first time.
1601 "Sukiyaki"
1604 next song
1607 OM talking about Hoyt Axton and when he was on WKRP  (I thought of that instantly when I saw Skipmuck ID the song, Olah).
1608 OM saying it would be great if the following song were played at the halftime show, into the Green Beret song.
1611 next song
1614 "Should I Stay Or Should I Go" The Clash
1617 OM back on, saying that there won't be QSL's today because he has to pack up and go once finished broadcasting. Explained that he uses an old 286 program to send QSL's so they're not personalized. Can't say "Super Bowl" so he calls it the Big Game, LOL.
1619 "Yesterday's Numbers"
1623 next song
1626 next song
1629 OM explaining last song was just Sonny, not Cher.
1631 hit the bottom of the hour.... all that money spent at the Columbia School of Broadcasting is paying off. Into next song.
1635 next song
1644 signal just faded away suddenly

I don't think it went QRT.... but one minute the signal was good and the next just a trace. Thanks for the show Olah!
