2213 UTC OM with ID "WHIV?". Sounds like a relay of a commercial station.
2214 UTC "Hang On Loosely"-38 Special
Thanks for the correct ID as WHIZ ZFT!
2219 UTC "WHIZ TV is your news and information leader", followed by "Ramblin Man"-Allman Brothers
2225 UTC Mention of "Martin Luther King Day", into news report
(I'm hearing some comms under the station...6961 USB with OM mentioning "Join the net")
2226 UTC OFF

A wise move to avoid the MARS net. It is a bad idea to interfere with their communications!
I believe the "TV" part of the ID was that the WHIZ radio used the WHIZ-TV affiliate ID for the news and weather breaks.
