On about 0101z.  Heard bits of "Who Are You", "I Need Love to Keep Me Happy", "Sunshine", "Mama Told Me Not to Come" with multiple IDs.

Well above S9 at times, but frequent fades into the noise.

Thanks Captain!

Have him here deep under my noise floor at the moment, tough copy in AM, I'll sit for a few; sometimes the balun magically warms up to CM, I'm always amazed :)

ID w/ "at gmail.com" heard at 0139.

Weak here, too. Thought I heard a CM ID. Definitely heard 3 Dog Night "Mama Told Me Not to Come"

Thanks for the show!

SDR recording catch. S7 signal, buried in the static. Not the Captain's usual signal strength here.
