1735 UTC Spoken word followed by OM with ID (S9 signal with excellent audio!)
1736 UTC "The Staircase(Mystery)"-Siouxie & The Banshees, into "Damaged Goods"-Gang of Four
1738 UTC Sounded like James Brownyard with a WHYP ID  :)

Hmmm.... sounds like a fast paced mix of old pirate shows! SSTV at 1741 UTC



1745 UTC "Big Black Dog"-Humble Pie
1747 UTC "Soviet Anthem heard on Radio Free Whatever and DJ DW ID" and Pearl Harbor Day show with Stavin
1752 UTC "It's Your Voodoo Working"-Charles Sheffield
1754 UTC "Zombie Jamboree"-Harry Belafonte
1759 UTC YL with "This is ION Radio"...hmmm....the frequency fits!  8)...followed by Yeah Man
1845 UTC OFF

My head is reeling! I'm going to kick back and listen while the recorder captures the moment! Now where did I put that roll of tinfoil?

THANK YOU FOR THE EXCELLENT PROGRAM ION RADIO! A pleasure to hear this one today!  :) :) :)

And before I forget.....HAPPY NEW YEARS!

Here's a link to my recording of the show...it's a long one!

Good signal but the noise floor is high so just readable with a lot of fading.
