0106- Tuned in to hear "Crazy Love" by Van Morrison
0107 - DJ id'd song, still fading some here.
0108 - "Running down the Dream" by Tom Petty after the song, OM talking about antenna adjustment, 6950 khz, I made an antenna adjustment moving azimuth more ENE, signal improved
something about "online radio star" then clear ID at 0114
0114 - "Private Idaho" by B52's
0118 - Another ID after talking about putting together list of his favorite songs
0119 - Jingle automated ID

Excellent reception into Masset, BC, off the NW coast of BC and 100 km south of Ketchikan AK.  Thanks for the heads up re the frequency change.  Enjoying the programming.  Sweet Surrender with Sarah McLachlan to 01:33.  Always appreciate an eQSL!   
Recorded the entire program right through to the sign off at 06:33.  Much appreciated!!!  Some very nice SSTV decodes!  Mine are not quite as nice, but still pretty decent.  See you next New Year's, but I'm sure much more frequently between then and now.   Walt

Tuned in at the end of the Sara McLachlan song, then shoutouts by the DJ at 0134 UTC.  Clear weak signal in SW FL at first, but signal has improved during the Procol Harum song ("Shine on Brightly") that followed.
