I thought I would drop a link to my recording of the show last night. Reception was direct from across the big pond! It has been awhile since I had this good a signal from JT on 48 meters! Thanks again for the entertainment!  :)

Thanks to Skipmuck for the recording - I regret that I was on truancy from the radio.
I am surprised by such a good reception overseas!
