2035 "What-ev-ver" to another electronic tune
2041 YL with back up singers, no luck with shazam....time pips during song
2049 Soviet Republic Anthem
2051 DJDW talking.....getting noisy tough to hear, "extravagnza", had a few problems, reports from Florida & Georgia (of course the East European
one  ;))
2054 Off?

2217 Excellent reception of EDM tune
2220 ID to another tune

Making it to south central Michigan on 4185/u ok. 44443+.
A bit stronger and you’d overcome my local noise but as it is — that’s poking through.

“Reproductive” and “Fixing Motorcycles” …. Indie rock I can’t say I’ve heard of but good for Dickweed that he actually announces titles!
DXing *either* from:
MI -- South Central Lower Michigan with a 25 m randomwire and a LOT of local noise!
or
MI2 -- the tip of Michigan's Thumb with a 100 metre longwire and much quieter conditions.  Radios can be either an SPR-4 or IC-R71A or SDRplay
