S9 in Washington D.C. suburbs, great signal

2331 Whisper to the Wild Water, Maire Brennan
2333 Radio Free Ireland ID "Coming to you from the rock"
2334 "Patrick" says he transmitted other Irish programs last winter
2335 Only Time, Enya
2339 Off the air

Looks like "Patrick" beat "Paisano" to the punch. Some nerve broadcasting this Irish stuff on Columbus Day weekend!

Thanks for the show.
