I picked it up earlier at 16:29 UTC,  and had no idea it was a Euro Pirate because all I was hearing was back to back pop music.  

Thanks for the tip when I put it on the Pirate logs for US.

1659 UTC  Male announcer with British Accent giving out Cupid Radio ID and talking about BCing at 50 watts.
1704 UTC Picked up more talk and another Cupid Radio ID.

The station has been playing Pop music without a break since 1630 UTC with the songs in English.  
It isn't listed on any B16 sked I have. It keeps fading in and out.
Signal is very weak right now at S3/S4. Fading in and Out.

Thanks so much for the tip.  I never expected to catch a Euro Pirate.

Just got the ID from the male announcer as he was talking.
