Heard what appears to be DCR starting around 0325z playing various versions of "Bye Bye Love"
Never did catch the ID directly as I was pulled away by election coverage. SINPO 35443 - a good signal into Chicago with little to no fading.

0333z - The Cars version
0338z - Instrumental of "God Bless America"
0340z - Kinks - Black Messiah
0344z - Alice Cooper - Elected
0352z - CSN - Wasted on the Way
0354z - CSN - Southern Cross
0359z - FSK - Star Spangled Banner
0401z - Dave Mason - We Just Disagree

Thanks for the show.

Thanks to Pirate IRC guys for the song ID help!
