2010 UTC YL with phonetic I-O-N, this is ION Radio", followed by comedy skit?, but the killer storm static is rendering copy impossible  :(

( 2014 UTC Signal has dropped down into the massive storm static now....  >:( )

Thanks for the blues tunes show ION! Below are 2 links to my recording. I turned it off at one point when the static made things impossible to copy, but the signal came back after a few minutes so I turned it on again!
