Just came up on 1710, oldies music, S8 with fades down to S5-S6.  ID at 0515z "Big Q" & "Hits Powerhouse".

0524z: Message stating this may be the final broadcast for a long time, and perhaps forever, due to "life changing events".  Thanked many past listeners here by name/handle.  Say it ain't so Q :-(
