Just barely audible on the local SDR in Machias, Washington, but fair via the SDR in Burke, Virginia, with "Searchin'" by The Coasters as of 0010 UTC, followed by "You Belong to Me" by The Duprees.
0014 UTC: ID, then "A Little Bit of Soap" by The Jarmels
0015 UTC: "My True Story" by The Jive Five
0018 UTC: ID and intro to next song ("Hey, Kaptain Kid. We've been reading this book, but we need to know who wrote it.") into "Book of Love" by the Monotones.
0021 UTC: "Get a Job" by The Silhouettes. I just hopped to an Ohio SDR, but this signal's fading out everywhere I tune in!
0023 UTC: Quick announcer intro into "Surfin' Bird" by The Trashmen.
Can't get a signal now ... and then apparently went off at 0028 UTC.

Thanks for the music!
