Great signal and audio here.

0130 "Once In a Lifetime" IS
0131 Green Jelly - "3 Little Pigs"
0137 "Radio...(wait for it)...Ga-Ga" ID, Talking Heads - "Once In a Lifetime"
0140 Gary Wright - "Dream Weaver"
0144 "Ghost Riders in the Sky" instrumental  --  sounds a lot like this could be Ennio Morricone?
0146 "Radio Ga-Ga, Pirate Shortwave" ID, G Lightfoot - "If You Could Read My Mind"  --  signal starting to fade badly here
0152 Neil Young - "Don't Let It Bring You Down"
0155 ID, "...Thanks for tuning in" and off

Thanks for the show, RGG!

Weak at first but signal is picking up on the west coast and I can make out the tunes now.
0144Z Sounds like Ghost Riders In the Sky
0150Z Gordon Lightfoot...forget the name of the tune

Thanks for the show even though I'm straining to hear it...BOR

SDR recording catch. Very weak at 0129z sign on, big peak to about S8 around 0135z, then down to about S6/S7 for the rest of the transmission.
