Good signal here at 0051 UTC tune-in with techno-pop and spacey electronica. Pesky QRM briefly, then something co-channel I can't make out. This station is always interesting in their selection of music.
In the clear since 0101 UTC with a solid S5 well above the noise (here in Western Massarctica).

Caught the tail end of this with end of song then ID by man..."This is Radio Canada...Victor Echo Seven Kilo Foxtrot Mike"...
I listened to my tape several times and can't make out the gmail address. I did google this and apparently this guy has caused quite a stir. The things you hear on the radio.....

Nice eQSL received today for January 25, 2014 broadcast on 6948 KHZ. Similar in style to the "alt 36" posted here previously.
Thanks Dale!!!

Good here with S4-S5 signal spot on 6940 USB here in Western MA. Tune-in 0119 during Me & Julio Down By The Schoolyard into Schools Out then My Old School. Sounds like the Ramones now...."school" themed! Great audio!
Blues/Rock tunes at 0132 and 0137. Quick "Wolverine Radio ID by man at 0140 into blues tinged harder edged rock tune. Noise level creeping up here.

Fair at 2237 UTC but steady above the noise here with "The Great Pretender". Pesky spot on 6925 LSB.
2240 "Bohemian Rhapsody"-Queen
"Fat Bottomed Girls", then into "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" at 2250 UTC
"Under Pressure" collaboration with David Bowie, into skit of some sorts at 2257 then "Jive Talking"-Bee Gees.{signal holding up pretty good still}

In early 1970, local WTXL-1490 AM had a great top 40 format and a Thursday evening Top 10 countdown called "Breakout". I would wait in anticipation of what was going to be number 1 that week...15 years old and the world was at my feet! WHYN-AM 560 also had a top 40 format, but in the early hours after midnight would play album cuts like "The End" by the Doors, the long version of IN-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, etc. Things just ain't like they used to be....

Rock solid S8 here at 2036 UTC with "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother"-Hollies followed by WRKO ID into "Rainy Night In Georgia"...
2041 "Bobby Mitchell Show" into Schlitz Malt Liquor ad.
2042 WRKO jingle followed by "Do You Believe In Magic"-Loving Spoonful
2044 "The Rapper"-Jaggerz
2048 Who'll Stop the Rain-CCR
{Some serious time travel here! I feel like I'm back in high school listening to the local AM top 40 outlet. Nice to hear this blast from the past!}
2052 "Easy Come Easy Go"-Bobby Sherman{oh well, every apple has it's worms}
2117 ID..."Hit Parade Radio" repeated with email address for reports
2133 ID repeated with email for reports and QSL requests...off abrupt 2134
{Thanks for an enjoyable show! Felt like I was reliving my teenage years for a spell. I measured the frequency at about 6948.1. Great signal throughout with minor selective fading. Nice to hear those songs again (except for Bobby Sherman and the T-Squares!) If you QSL from the site logs, I would be happy to receive one. I have another half hour of details if necessary.}
PS. I don't recall being able to hear WRKO here in Western Mass...we listened to WHYN AM and WTXL AM...in the early part of the 1970's, WAQY FM(ex-WTYM?) and WHVY FM(ex WMAS) switched to MOR and AOR format.

Tuned in here at 1925 UTC with music with man talkover? 1928 Monkey screeching repeated followed by Brylcreem ad. 1929 man with talk about losing the freedoms of our founding fathers into some kind of rap tune. This was followed by what sounded like a preacher of sorts.
1941 old radio ad {followed by my trip to the local CVS so I missed rest of the broadcast}
Signal was variable, peaking at S8, but with deep fades and noise. At peak strength, some signal distortion.
