S7 0104 "Never Can Say Goodbye".  I'm thinking of the movie "The Martian" now :)
0105 "I'll Never Find Another You"  The Seekers.  I'm getting some interference from some digital signal on 6953
0108 "Never Surrender" Corey Hart
0114 "You Never Can Tell" Chuck Berry
0125 "We May Never Pass This Way Again".  Sounds like there's co-channel interference with a commercial broadcaster that's fading in and out.
0128 "My Lovin" En Vogue
