At first, I thought this was the thread for yesterday's broadcast, then I realized it's for a new one.

0055 Are You Lonesome Tonight (I think; I only caught the last line or two)
0056 voice ID then The Kid Is Hot Tonight by Loverboy
0102 Get Down Tonight by KC & The Sunshine Band
0103 some kind of ID, I think

I still had quite a bit of static that made it hard to hear the broadcast, so I didn't listen very long.  Shazam was able to ID two songs even if they weren't easy to hear though.  So at least for when I tuned in, I did get somewhat better reception today than yesterday.  I'm guessing it has to do with the weather -- it was really rainy yesterday and today, but it's clearing up now.  My radio shows RSSI of about 30-35, SNR of maybe 15-25, and the odd 12-segment signal meter with a 0-10 range has about 2-3 bars so maybe a 2 of 10?

Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. 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

0041  ID into what sounds like a repeat of last night's show.  Another ID at 0048.

Fair, although noisy.

Heard at Lake Farm County Park near Madison, Wi. with 2 friends on a mini DXpedition.  Equipment: Tecsun H-501x & GRC30 loop
