on 6284.95
1552 Ventures background, talking in D, 1555 "The wanderer", phone call in D
more pop and rock oldies, duo DJ, 1622 commercial?
sounds like a relay from an FM station,
1650 sudden change to hard rock, free radio announcements, 1655 Man of action
1656 back to Cliff Richard "You're my angel" (?title)
that was a recording of the Dutch station Radio Noord
still well heard here at 1805.

(2310 : a very weak carrier)

Tough copy here in Eastern Mass but static crashes subsided just enough for Shazam to get an ID:

2332 - "Paranoid" - Black Sabbath
2335 - "Poetry In Motion" Johnny Tillotson
Thanks for the show! Tough copy (oh well)
2338 - "Ballroom Blitz" - Sweet

Overall S2 - S3 but able to make it to the Island through the static.
Appreciate the show!
