1754 OM "Happy Thanksgiving... stand by for CW"
1756 And there's the CW, SIO 444 or so? CW loud, earlier audio was a little less modulated?
1800 "Tu Te Reconnaitras"
1803 OM speaking, said it is an exciting adventure trying to make things work.

Weak here, OM talking in the noise.  Copied some CW @ 1757 - 'FOXY AM BEGINNING TRANSMISSION'
1801 - music now, louder than the talking, "Tu Te Reconnaitras" by Anne-Marie David [according to Shazam].  S5.
1902 - still going, "One World" by John Martyn, S4 to S5

I had stepped away from the radio, but found this image on MMSSTV when I returned.  Signal must have deteriorated though, very noisy.

SINPO=44444, strong here. A little quick fading, but clear copy. Nice signal!

1823- "Natural High" by Bloodstone.
1826- "Distance" by Yebba.
1830- Foxy says it sounds like we have some interference now. IDs last and next tunes.
1831- "Czarne Slowa" (Black Words) by Anna Maria Jopek (live).

Thanks for the great smooth, mellow Thanksgiving tunes, Foxy! Well curated and thanks for sharing.

1908 tune in with classical piano piece -- fair to good in Maryland.
SSTV at 1917 UTC, signal not good enough to read...
