23:42 utc Eagles "Hotel California"
23:49 utc "Spooky" - not sure who's performing it. then CSNY
23:56 utc Mark Knopfler  - don't know this tune  few S7 peaks, mostly S5 - S6
00:03 Radio Roni Shortwave ID then right into-
00:30 Doors, followed by music by?  I know that voice but can't place it now.
Could hear OP talk at end but could not make it out
Off Air ~00:20 utc - Came back on briefly - heard "Radio Ronin" and the word "always?" - tough copy.
