I got it with a fair/good signal.  Thanks for the show. 
Rush, Call me the working man.  Carrier is good, but audio is a bit low.
I wonder if tonight's theme will be "Work".  We will see what is played ;)
0107Z Beatles We can work it out.
0109Z, Taking care of Business, Bachman Turner Overdrive, I think,
0114Z  Huey Lewis and the News, Working for a living.
0016Z ID Working hard for the money, corrected Donna Summer
I have been using this show to check how different the signal is on Tecsun PL880 and Xhdata D-808.  The D-808 is fair, but PL880 is slightly better.   The AirSpy SDR with noise reduction filter is still the best.

I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

I tuned in at about 0148 UTC, but the signal was rather poor for me.  I could tell that there was something on air, but I couldn't really hear anything clearly.  I guess it's just me though since others here seem to have picked it up much better.
