S3 @ 0118 with "June In January" by Ray Conniff, poor to occasionally fair copy.
0133 - "It's All Right With Me" Jonah Jones Quartet, S3 to S4 but wasn't able to make out what the announcer was saying before this song.
0143 - "Here Comes The Sun", S4
0147 - "Sun King"
0200 - "Warsaw Concerto" Ray Conniff, S5
0205 - ID, but I missed it.  Talking about the Sandpipers
0206 - "Louie, Louie" by The Sandpipers, S6 and pretty good copy now.

Music heard, but not much detail about it and signal fades out often.

Signal is much improved and at S9 with some noise. Fading issues are mostly gone. Thanks for the broadcast.

The Beatles
Announcer selected a LP of The Sandpipers. Very nice music introduced; Louie, Louie.
