Channel Z by the B-52s, plus what sounds like the chimes of Big Ben.  

Very weak here tonight. SIO 222

MUCH improved signal by 0145, up to an S8 on the RadioJet. SIO 433

Nice S9 signal here.  Announcer with british accent.  David Bowie song from 1965 that I had never heard before (thanks!).
ID @0123 and into 'You're on by Mind' by The Birds (not the Byrds). Snail Mail addy (include a couple bucks), + email and ID at 0126z
"You'd Better Run" by Robert Plant (never heard this before either).

The theme is Songs before they got famous...

Thanks for the show!!!


P.S.  Kilokat - Shazam says the Space Odyssey remix was 'Also Sprach Zarathustra' by Deodato  (looks like it may have a utube video)....

First noted around 0105 UTC with that great remix of the 2001 Space Odyssey theme (I'd love to know who did this).  S5-S7 with Andy Walker, sounds like the same program heard and reported here recently.  Thanks Z!

Thanks refmo!  Found this too:

Respectable S9 signal here tonight, but a good amount of summer static crashes. British announcer with various pop tunes.
