Channel Z 4070 AM and 6925 AM 2158 UTC 23 Dec 2019
« on: December 23, 2019, 2159 UTC »
ID's @ 2158 sign-on.  S7 and good audio.  Occasional fades.
2159 - Christmas music
2202 - "Stone Soul Christmas" Binky Griptite
2204 - "Santa Claus Go Straight To The Ghetto" James Brown
2207 - "Christmas Rap" Kurtis Blow.  S8 on 4070 and 6925.  Audio seems better on 6925 (or maybe its just noisier on 4070).
2239 - QSL info, then "December Will Be Magic Again" Kate Bush, still best here on 6925, S8.
2248 - "Christmas Wrapping" The Waitresses, S7 with some fades
2253 - "White Christmas" Patty Smith, 6925 with lots of fades, 4070 at S9
2254 - ID and off

Merry Christmas, CZ!  Thanks for the show!
