0053 UTC Unid song just above the noise floor
0055 UTC OM chat, into "Bigmouth Strikes Again"-The Smiths
0058 UTC OM chat, with Chuck Wagon dog food ad, into "Louie Louie"-Pretenders
0103 UTC OM chat, into "She Blinded Me With Science"-Thomas Dolby (Signal up to S9 now!)
0106 UTC OM chat, into "From the Beginning"-Emerson, Lake, and Palmer (CW over the song)
0110 UTC OM chat about the morse code over the song and ID "WDOG", into a song that Shazam will not recognize(with CW over the song)
0016 UTC Couldn't copy the ending....psychedelic music OM talking over a slight heterodyne....mention of "next broadcast", then OFF

I remember there was a WDOG back at the end of the 1980's or thereabouts. I lost interest around that time and didn't get back into listening again until 2013. Hmmm....any other oldtimers remember this one?

Thanks for the detective work Chris Smolinski! Seems this was a short lived station! Mentioned in the show was a test broadcast in 1987. This show is different than the following link. Good to hear these old shows!  :)

Here's a short excerpt from my recording last night - in between the QRM blast at my QTH, the signal was pretty good.
