S7 to S8 @ 2236 with ID and into "I'm Your Captain/Closer To Home" GFR
2246 - ID, 'broadcasting to the world,... and Canada', then a bit of "Weigh, Hey And Up She Rises" by The Irish Rovers
2247 - "The Crystal Ship" The Doors, S8, songs seem to be a nautical theme (mostly)
2325 - "Come Sail Away", S6
2340 - "What's The Frequency [WTF], Kenneth?", REM
2350 - Carrier still about S6, audio is getting lower though
2358 - 'one more song', audio way down now

Listening since 2352 with music and talk by OM and many "WTF Radio" IDs. Good but very soisy here. 0001 - Unsure if they are off or if it is some local noise killing the FQ.
