Music, clear WEAK Radio ID in YL voice by DJ Knob Twister.
Song "Pirate Radio" by The Toasters:
When I was a boy I used to listen to the radio
Late into the night with the volume down and the lights down low.
Tune it in to the 999, they used to call her Caroline.
Every Sunday night I listened in midnight to two
And no one [else] had to know that we're all alone, just me and you.

Who gives a damn about the BBC? Out in the channel everyone was free.
Listening to the radio, pirate radio.

Followed by "W-E-A-K, Weak Radio" ID w/ echo fx by DJ Knob Twister.
