Recorder catch:

6925 USB SIO 323

Decent signal with some fade - came on after Pirate Radio Boston with what sounded like a few clips of dialog from movie or radio show.

02:37z "...take it off the air..." repeated
02:39z sounds like the Wicked Witch of the West clip

Audio (02:37z-02:39z): http://archive.org/download/ShortwaveOddsSodsTransmissions/Unid_pirate6925Usb0237z-0239z06-21-12.mp3

Thanks :)

SDR catch, sounded like "I'm taking you off the air, I think you're having a breakdown". Good copy here.

Quote was in response to the "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it any more" speech in Network.
