Piano music.ID as Ball Smacker Radio.
CCR -Have You Ever Seen The Rain?
0105 The Doors - Riders on the Storm
Noise level high presently; may try later closer to local sunset.
Through the noise it appears tonight's theme is Rain-related being heard through the electro -magnetic storm here.
Still on air at 0216 but signal faint.

Tuned in at 0112utc, weak/fair signal low noise some fading, hear rock ballad, just before 0121 ID by woman as "Ballsmacker Radio" followed by sound of bowling ball hitting pins, soft rock tune "here comes the rain again" by Eurythmics, Elvis singing "Kentucky rain", at 0129 Prince "purple rain", seems to be a rain themed program, at 0136 woman said "ballsmacker@protonmail.com still on at 0400utc but weaker than earlier, nice program, thanks.
