0251 About 2 minutes of disco music, then off.

S7 and good here ... brief as it was.

Left radio on 6880U & suddenly at 2116 a disco song pops on, with brief talk and ID for Worldwide Basement Radio - "Radio the way it was in 1953" into some Motown, talk, ID into "How long has this been going on?" then into a nice program of pops with DJ chatter and some ID's between songs.

S6 here with good audio.

Thanks for the program.
