Mellow rock vocal, talk and an ID but it was over driven so I didn't understand it.  Another similar mellow rock song, ID into Dr. Benway telling a story.

S4 and clear.  OTHR "machine gun" QRM at 2323.

I couldn't hear this in AM mode earlier, but I tuned in at 0000 UTC to find it in USB mode just as the OM announcer gave an "Undercover Radio" ID, an email address and mentioned a special QSL before going into Jimmy Buffett's "I Don't Know (the Volcano Song)" at 0002 UTC.

0005 UTC: The OM gave a time check, now chatting again.
0013 UTC: After a couple of spoken word and spacey pieces, the OM announcer chatted again before going into a new song.
0020 UTC: I mean, I don't know what this is, but I don't hate it. Lots of spoken word, spacey pieces, with the signal battling some OTHR noise here.
0022 UTC: OM gave an email address again, I think. Then chatted some more into a song at 0024 UTC.
0029 UTC: SSTV transmissions (two in all), and signoff at 0031 UTC.
0032 UTC: One more SSTV.

Being pretty new here, I just read the history of Undercover Radio and Dr. Benway. Pretty good stuff. Thanks for the program!
