17 June 2016 from 0000 to 0017 UTC on 6977 kHz in the AM mode, receiving a great program from the Jackie Gleason era of TV!

After tuning in tonight, I heard a male announcer say "I happen to be a fan of Jackie Gleason"

At 0002 UTC, I heard an orchestra playing, with a lead saxophone solo. Trumpets entered around 0006 UTC, with band accompaniment, perhaps the Jackie Gleason Orchestra.

At 0009 UTC, a male announcer introduced Jackie Gleason and The Honeymooners. At 0009 UTC, the year 1985 and Art Carney were mentioned by a female announcer.

At 0011 UTC, a male announcer said: "Jackie Gleason dead at 71." A trumpet solo was heard at 0013 UTC.

Station ID was picked up at 0015 UTC as follows by a female announcer: "Howsweetitisradio@gmail.com," "Thank you for listening," followed by Jackie saying his famous lines "How Sweet It Is" and "I Got A Big Mouth."

0017 UTC - sign-off occurred. Good signal into northern New Jersey tonight! Thanks for the memories and show! Please QSL.

Tuned in at 0127 UTC, 13 June 2016 and heard the opening chord of John Lennon's "Imagine," repeated over until the song began at 0128.

0132 UTC- The Door singing "Break On Through," with a modified interlude that was really spectacular as the genius of Ray Manzarek could really be appreciated (and enjoyed) as only he did on the electric piano with the Doors.

0140 UTC- modified version of the popular "Eye in the Sky"

0144 UTC- modified version of the Moody Blues "Nights In White Satin" heard here

0148 UTC- original TV version of the theme song "I Am Mr. Ed." Wow, it's been a long time since I heard this!

0149 UTC- Pop hit "You Take A Part Of Me" (Every Time You Go...)

0153 UTC- Billy Joel singing "It's Still Rock & Roll To Me"

More interesting modified musical interludes heard, perhaps even "Bette Davis Eyes" at 0206 UTC, which ended the program at 0210 UTC.

No announcements or station ID's throughout this segment; wondering if anyone else heard this???

SINPO=45334, S9 + 10 signal into northern New Jersey.

Please QSL and thank you for the most enjoyable program tonight. Nice way for me to close out the evening!
