Tuned in at 0110 with easily understandable music.  I could not understand the OM who began speaking at 0112.  More noise and next song is harder to understand.

Heard here since 0110, with Tom Petty, an extended OM talk, and The B-52s. Fair signal, but tons of noise here. Talking again at 0120.
0128 - My Old School - Stealy Dan It took a minute or two of knob-tuning to get t clear enough to ID this song. The noise totally overwhelms voice here, but not the music, though its tough copy. (SINPO: 252320. Brief announcement then a song with a female vocalist at 0124. More talk and music followed. Tough copy continues.
0141 - Little Feat song. Signal has strenghtened considerably and noise decreased a bit too. OM talk at 0145.
