Drunken DJ Radio

6935USB 12 May 2016 0202-0225 Interesting music from the Drunken DJ; stuff unfamiliar but good. DJ asks that requests for music be sent to the Hfunderground. A very strong signal that deteriorated. Left the radio on after I stopped listening to get a promised SSTV image. The image recorded, but the words at the bottom were unreadable, so conditions changed.
