Listening from NW Colorado on a Tecsun PL880 with a random wire.  Signal is very rough but I can make out some of the tracks.

I started listening at around 00:02UTC.  I think I heard some Credence or Fogerty and recognized some other tracks, but don't know the names.
00:07 SSTV?
00:12 the stones
00:18 ELO
00:20 the animals
00:23 SSTV?
00:27 my sharona
00:28 urgent.
