Got it here on the west coast also about S2 to 3 through heavy OTHR. The noise blanker is helping somewhat though.
1312Z some Christmasy sounding music...can't be sure what's playing...

Fair signal with lots of fades, S5 peaks.  Playing 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas' by Pretenders @ 1315z then into 'O Come, All Ye Faithful' by Jim Nabors.
ID @ 1323z

Update:  Signal improved greatly at 1336z, up to S9!  Into 'Let It Snow' @ 1338z

Thanks for the show!

Nice canned professional ID heard 1338 UTC, followed by "Let it Snow".  Really crisp clear audio this morning, S8 signal in NY.

Have him here with a fair signal. Not the usual Radio Ronin powerhouse, but pretty good for the time of day. No fades, clear of interference. So far I've heard Burl Ives Have a Holly Jolly Christmas, a jazzed up We Three Kings, and Dance of the Sugar Plum Faeries. SIO 344

Thanks Ronin! This is a great thing to wake up to the morning of Christmas Eve.
