Have this station at 6924.5-ish. Interesting, the signal strength came up suddenly at about 1600 to S9 due to a change in propagation or a power increase. Played a version of "Happy Holidays at 1600.

ID of Boom Box Radio at 1606 follow by "Royals" by Lorde.

Barely above the noise for me, couldn't tell you what music is playing.  Prop is terrible today, barely even getting any stations on the 7MHz CW band which is usually wall-to-wall.
