Tuned in via NA5B in D.C. area ... Noisy conditions and static crashes.

2253: "Freeze Frame" by J. Geils Band.
2254: Some unreadable talking into the pirate's theme song.
2256: Theme from "Mr. Roger's Neighborhood."
2257: ID: "You're rocking with PJ Sparx on Radio East Coast" into Warren Zevon's "The Envoy."
2300: PJ on the mic, mentioning the last song was a request and so is the next one, "Bad Feeling" by Cobra Man.
2305: "Everybody Party Tonight" by Cobra Man.
2308: "Do You Feel the Same Way Too" by Jet Black. The signal strength via this SDR is great, but the static crashes and noise are getting worse again!
2311: "Flagpole Sitta" by Seattle's own Harvey Danger (I love this song!).
2314: ID ... noise is making this pretty unlistenable as a phone call skit plays.
