Just signed on, an OM singing. Rather muffled audio, S6 signal.

Radio Ga Ga ID at 2334z, clear audio, so it was just that one song.

Ga Ga with stronger than normal signal here, playing "Turn Me Loose" by Loverboy @2334, ID as "warning, warning, you are listening to
Radio Ga Ga", by OM.  Signal now weaker at 2344 with "She Blinded Me With Science".  Off for a few mins at 0001, then on after some sort of horns, then female talking "some people go to church, other people masturbate... [no mention of those who do both] "Born Under a Bad Sign" by Cream, ID and off 0010.

Super strong signal tonight - S9 +10 with peaks to +20. Audio seems a little off though, somewhat muffled. Thanks for the show GaGa!

- Audio seems to have improved! Cheap Trick sounds good Ga Ga.

Got home from work, switched on, and heard "Born Under A Bad Sign".  Live from Zipper Lake ID and sign-off notification just after it, then off.  SIO 444 here, the clearest I've ever heard this station.  I thought it was North Woods Radio at first!  Thanks for the show, even if I tuned in late.
