Spruch [G20] Memory lane

One of the most unusual stations of the past was 'the Spruch', a German language station that used a number of different pieces of music as interval signals, each song belonged to a 'Spruchnummer', which was most probably the agent's id.

Spruchnummer 1 Schubert Serenade
Spruchnummer 2 a saxophone piece (don't know the title)
Spruchnummer 3 Brahms Waltz
Spruchnummer 4 Mexican Hat Dance
Spruchnummer 5 Atlantis by the Shadows
Spruchnummer 7 We Get Ideas by Louis Armstrong
Spruchnummer 10 Bach's Toccata in D minor
Spruchnummer 17 Red Balloon by The Dave Clark Five

Message format:
Achtung, Spruchnummer 1, Gruppenzahl 42, Zeit 60900, Achtung Spruch Geht, followed by 42 5FG's, followed by "Ende Ende".

The time (Zeit) was a date/time group. 60900 = the 6th, 0900 hours Central European Time.
