Piano IS at 0058 followed by statio ID at 0100'
"Fool for the City" came on right after.  Fair signal but noisy conditions in eastern Nebraska.
Songs with "City" in the title.
Unfortunately show completely obscured in the noise here by 0130.

0110 "city" themed songs.  I've been and out of the radio room, so no consistent listening.  However "City of New Orleans," "Summer in the City," ID, email and bowling ball hitting pins sequence, "You belong to the city," Go'in to Kansas City,"

S7 here with some fading.
