05:11z right at noise level in the very middle of America. Sounds like Zeppelin "Whole Lotta of Love"
05:12 "Come on Eileen"
05:16z "Cars"
05:20z Hmm, I lived through the eighties as an adult, I should remember this one. "Don't you want me, baby..." sig up to +5Db
05:24z "Get in my Belly!" Austin Powers clip
05:24z ??? Good copy, I just don't recognize the tune.
05:39z "Come on Eileen" reprise a few bars
05:39z Voices with some echo. Can't make out.
05:40z Sounds like live announcer, but too noisy. "Thank you (someone)"
05:41z gone
05:43z Okay, not gone, I think I hear "Col. Turtlehead"? I didn't hear "Catherwood", did I?

Someone calling Col. Turtlehead. Good copy on the exchange between caller and the Col. "Hope to have another show Sat. or Sun."
05:44z Signoff.

Audio is a little thin, but pretty legible now. Sig not really building much, but the noise level is coming down. Also getting the static crashes here, of course.

Thanks for the show!
