Elton John- Rocket Man. Good signal showing S8. Thanks for the broadcast.

Station is in and out at times. Sometimes the signal is looking big.

The theme tonight is Rocket Man by different artists. Signal jumped to S9+10.

SINPO=33222, with signal improving.

109- "Rocket Man" by Elton John, but remixed with repeats, reverb and techno/dance beats.
110- Robotic OM voice talking with effects, but hard to copy right now due to QRN. I thought I heard something like "Radio Ragnar" or "Radio Rad-(something)", but it was more likely "Radio Rocketman," although that's just a guess.
111- Sound effects and then upbeat pop music with synthesizer sound, "Radio Mars" by Maggotron.
117- OM speaking "Rocket Man" lyrics dramatically over background music.
119- Silence, then off.

ID sounded like Radio Radeon, but bad hearing and all, who knows.
