2253: Zeke thinks the country is going to end.  Listening to some old 45s
2254: Signal took a dive but came back about 10 seconds later.
2255: Female singer, signal in and out, "What my heart believes".

Good signal into NE Indiana, just hit some some decent fades.  SINPO 45434.

I'd say Happy New Year, but you're right, who knows what will happen next year.  We all said Happy New Year last year and look how 2020 turned out....

Tuned in to hear his ID as "last show of the year 2020" at 2307 then Andy Williams "There Will Never Be Another You".
Interesting older music choices. Especially the current one, starting to flutter a bit at 2326.
Blasting into SW Florida S7-S9. Nicely done and Happy New Year!
