SINPO=45454, wow!

2332- "Sweatpants" by Auralnauts.
2337- Recorded OM ID with sound clips. Music marathon!
2338- "Little Things" by Big Thief.
2343- YL recorded "WhatEVER!"
2343- "If You Ever Leave, I'm Coming With You" by The Wombats.
2346- Comrade DJ DW IDing station and last songs. New track from Duran Duran next. Gives bunker hotline number.
2347- "More Joy" by Duran Duran.

0102- DJ DW IDing and giving out the bunker hotline. Lot's of activity tonight, so he doesn't expect too many calls, given that there are only a few million listening. IDs next tune. Sycko Radio calling in live and patched in on the air (and vice versa)!

Heard here since 2328. End of song and OM discussing phone number for call-ins (none given) and three day weekend. Song called "Sweatpants" at 2332. Good signal here with some noise, but signal and good audio overcome it.
2353: Booming in with less noise as well. SINPO now at 55444.
2355: RFW ID
2357: Mentioned that he played a song by Jungle,Days Like These, and new Duran Duran song. He said he can't be your bartender.
0012: Radio Genix OP and Charlie Loudenboomer called in!
0027: New Billy Idol! Still booming in.
0031 DJ Dickweed read names of HFU posters (You got the name right, DJ...and I'm in NE MA).
0034: The Holy Drug Couple
0037: Cover w/YL vocals of Enter Sandman by Metalica. Signal still quite strong with some mild static but still holding up quite well here.
0047: I Can't Remember the Dream by They Might Be Giants.
0104: Talking with Psycho from Psycho Radio. He mentioned how well RFW was coming in.

23:59z Radio Free Whatever booming in S9 - S9+10 here in southern New Hampshire.

Opened up my filter wide to get all that extra fidelity in the signal.

Currently listening to Peach by Future Islands.
Not my style per say but I have heard much worse. ;D

Good signal out in CO, SIO 333 or so. DJDW speaking with another op on the phone.
0028 update, music now, SIO 444, but lotsa static crashing. Fortunately good signal is overcoming it for the most part.

Got DJ Dickweed here in CT with another excellent signal.  Thanks for the show.
0127, Signal has almost faded into the noise.  All good things do come to an end.
