« on: June 09, 2012, 0113 UTC »
Someone just came on here. Quite weak in GA. I can just make out the audio here.
0118 Talk and maybe an ID.
Into some sort of pirate sounding song.
Signal improving a bit 0122. Song about "that wonderful ship...."
Signal improving some more, peaks up to S3/S4 now. 0125
0129 Seagulls and "North Sea Radio" or "North Seas Radio" ID
0141 "Goin back to the Sea, back to the sea, where I know whats expected of me"
0143 :Here's to the whore"   Signal now up to S5 or so.
0145 Another ID, seagulls and walrus sound, or maybe a seal.

Now that I can hear it----nice audio!
Appears to be gone after 0152

Great show, Thank you
