0110 - 0123 S9+20 Received on my own equipment modified with SDR and C-QUAM sounding very nice in stereo.
 Thanks Redhat for your hard work bringing this show to us.

0350 Signal to noise even better now.

0500 Still here enjoying the music with some of Redhat’s history.

01:25 Mastodon, "Emperor of Sand". S9 signal here in south central Wisconsin. Great show!

02:37 Middle Class Rut "New Low" S9 signal

Do you have anything from The Hu? If you do, could you please play either "Wolf Totem" of their cover of Metallica's "Sad But True"?

Thanks for the show

Came back from a walk at local dusk to hear an audible but poor signal direct at my place near Seattle; good signal via the Northern Utah SDR.

0122 UTC: "Less Than" by Nine Inch Nails.
0124 UTC: Canned ID into "Streambreather" by Mastodon.
0129 UTC: Redhat going over past few songs played, then shout-outs to HFU posters. Mentioned this is his "decade in review" music show and gave email address. Broadcasting "east of the Rockies, but west of normal."
0135 UTC: Redhat mentioned he's drinking Rogue's Dead Guy Ale, which is a great ale; I've visited the tasting room at Rogue's headquarters on the Oregon Coast. Since found out I'm allergic to beer, so I've graduated to wine and whiskey.
0136 UTC: "Trials" by Starset.
0141 UTC: "Radio" by Rammstein. I LOVE this song; one of my faves from 2019.
0145 UTC: Canned ID into "Rope" by Foo Fighters.
0149 UTC: Redhat with time check into "Shot in the Dark" from AC/DC's newest album.
0153 UTC: Redhat back on mic, mentioning previously played songs and doing HFU shout-outs.
0158 UTC: Canned ID into "Cool Kids" by Echosmith. Going to sit back and enjoy the tunes for a while!
0212 UTC: That "When is the Future" song by VNV Nation's pretty cool. The signal's still poor here near Seattle, but it's breaking through the noise in AM mode rather than just SSB now. Also a decent signal via the Winnemucca, Nevada, SDR I'm now listening to.
0320 UTC: Checked back on the signal on my radio here near Seattle, and it's improved to fair at the peaks. But there's still a lot of noise between those peaks.
0413 UTC: The noise has subsided somewhat, and I can now hear Redhat from across the room most of the time here on my radio.

Hello Redhat. Catching your show on 4185 via the Utah SDR with a solid 10 Over S9 and excellent audio! ID at 0123 into  Steambreather by Mastodon at 0124. Looking forward to your Music Review Show! Hopefully you will play some new AC/DC. Congrats for 10 years of rockin' the HF airwaves and also it is the alcohol! Thanks for playing "Shot In The Dark'! ;D
