Huge signal with a live comedy segment recorded in Minnesota (about terrorists, Jersey Shore characters, phone apps, taking LSD, etc.) broken up with WFMT IDs. Interesting conditions tonight because I'm getting some multipath echo at times.
Thanks for the show!

SINPO 54455 into southern Wisconsin tonight.  I never caught an ID, but that can be blamed on my tuning in when KBC played a song I wasn't fond of, not on conditions.  Comedy routine with nothing whatsoever bleeped out - I distinctly heard 'you are f**ked!' once.  Signal seemed to be drifting upward a smidge over time. 

Thanks for the show!  The churchbells still give me shiveries.
