Sang a song to Al Fansome, ID, then into White Christmas.

S9+ signal. Nice to hear some early afternoon activity!

12/19/08, 6925 USB: Caught some of Sunshine and Grasscutter between 1820-2020 UTC, between fades.  Fair signal, unusual for me to hear anything this time of day on 6925.  (N. Central TX)  (Thanks to Chris for confirming ID)
1820-1830 UTC: Hearing Sunshine singing, improvising Christmas carols. Fair signal at first, faded after 10 minutes.  SINPO - 25411
1921z: A bit of AWB "Cut the Cake" clearly audible for a moment, then off/faded, a bit of "We Want the Funk", "Why Can't We Be Friends", other songs.  (Presumed Sunshine and Grasscutter, tho' this segment sounded more like Captain Morgan material.)  SINPO - 25411
2007: Bob & Doug McKenzie "12 Days of Christmas"
2020z: Some version of "Silent Night"
2023z: Barking dogs "Jingle Bells"
SINPO - 25422
