OK, thanks, TRS. If it's an all-music show, I guess I won't record it, but I did bring the PL-880 downstairs & put it in a place where it's not picking up so much noise so that that I can keep listening. Thanks much for the show!

your're welcome.
yes, typically, its just an all music show, music tunes i listen to while at work during the day (monitoring from an online SDR), it helps the work day move better especially on days like today with the bad weather.

Tuned in at 1907 UTC (using Chris' KiwiSDR - my local RX antenna is disconnected due to the impending tropical storm) to hear the tail end of Nirvana with ute QRM on 6883 kHz or 6884 kHz but didn't make much of a difference due to the killer signal of The Relay Station.  Nearly 20 kHz wide AM signal with strong audio, sounds like and looks like broadcast station on the waterfall. 

1909 UTC - Gotye - Somebody That I Used To Know
1910 UTC - signal dipped down a bit but still very good copy
1912 UTC - The Killers - Somebody Told Me
1915 UTC - I tuned over to 7268 kHz LSB to check on the Hurricane Watch Net for a few minutes [which apparently wasn't even active]
1916 UTC - when I tuned back the signal had gone from nearly armchair copy levels down to bits and pieces of audio
1919 UTC - switched to a remote receiver in New York, now S5-S6 with some noise but sounding good
1921 UTC - Third Eye Blind - Jumper
1941 UTC - there ain't no rest for the wicked
1952 UTC - faded down into the noise
1954 UTC - faded back up with Cake's "Rock 'N' Roll Lifestyle"
2005 UTC - carrier appeared around 6885 kHz, moved around a bit, settled on 6885.5 kHz
2006 UTC - mystery carrier gone, Cake still playing
2010 UTC - pushing S9+10db on Chris' remote in Maryland
2025 UTC - another VFO spinner produced a terrible het, then zero-beated onto 6880.0 kHz
2028 UTC - strong carrier appeared on 6885.0 kHz
2029 UTC - carrier on and off 6885, causing terrible het with "Aeroplane" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers
2035 UTC - SSB signal appeared right at the edge of the upper side band on 6890 kHz USB
2111 UTC - still going strong!  no difference with the USB station on 6890, nice strong audio from The Relay Station
2112 UTC - Weezer - Hash Pipe
2114 UTC - pushing S9+10 on the Uniontown, PA SDR
2116 UTC - Weezer - Beverly Hills

 :o Nice readable signal, loads of bass near W.D.C.
About 433 and some body swishing VFO around near frequency now a steady heterodyne.
2010- still good signal with little to moderate fades.

Just listening on the portable, I haven't heard any of the QRM-causing stations. Still a "sit back and listen" signal from TRS
