The Vault 6985 AM 1932 UTC 5 Sep 2020

1932 Now hearing audio, SIO 222 or so. I've had a weak carrier for about half an hour. Interesting how quickly the signal came up.

2158 Have music but will be tuned in later after return of Cousin Brucie.

2241 Excellent Reception. "Mrs. Robinson" Simon & Garfunkel, but does the Vault Keeper across the pond know who was Joe DiMaggio?  Looks like your following is starting to grow on the board.    Almost all of your American blog posters are from New England (6 most north east states).
2306 ID, "I Want Your Love" CHIC
2313 "Laughter in the Rain" Neil Sedaka
2315 ID to "Just the Way You Look Tonight"
2318 "God Only Knows" The Beach Boys. Thanks for utterly delightful broadcast once again  ;D.
2321 "Don't Worry Baby". Maybe Wilson Phillips?, reception fading.
