Just tuned into the good signal (with some noise and a little fading) via NA5B near D.C. ...

0012 UTC: "Don't Let Me Down (Live)" by The Beatles and Billy Preston.
0014 UTC: "Substitute (Live version)" by The Who.
0016 UTC: "WTF Radio" ID, then an UNID rock song. Noise is increasing on the frequency.
(took break to listen to 6905U)
0030 UTC: Live version of "Watching the Detectives" by Elvis Costello.
0032 UTC: "WTF Radio Worldwide" ID, then into a Sting/Police song that Shazam won't ID for me.
0038 UTC: OM on the mic with ID, a little chatter into the Nirvana's unplugged cover of "The Man Who Sold the World."
0042 UTC: ID into "Voodoo Chile" by Stevie Ray Vaughan.
0049 UTC: OM says his "transmitter was overheating" a little with that song, so he's calming it down a bit. Then "Yer Blues (live)" by Plastic Ono Band.
0052 UTC: OM talks about how he likes live versions of songs for a change, then plays "Once in a Lifetime" by the Talking Heads. It's the "Stop Making Sense" live version, I believe.

0018 Song, then a moment later over song - ID and e mail for QSL, song continues.  Another song, "Sultans of swing."

Just before the signal was inaudible, then it popped in.  S6 now.
