2252 "Imagination" Belouis Some
2254 "Coney Island" (great fun place of my youth) Van Morrison
2256 "Why" Annie Lennox
2303 (Reception faded for a few minutes but now back) "I Ran" A Flock of Seagulls
2305 The Vault Keeper talking live but too noisy to get entire context.  So, I must be the first in North America to hear The Vault Keeper on radio live  :D.

23:46 UTC - Very weak signal into my location. The only way I can hear anything is by tuning in SSB;
23:50 UTC - The Beatles - Come Together;
23:57 UTC - Supertramp - Take the Long Way Home;
00:03 UTC - Series of tones followed by pips then station ID: "Listening to the Vault". End of broadcast.
