I caught the 1720 AM transmission by Undercover Radio. S5-S6 signal in the Boston burbs. Some moderate fading. The deep announcer voice was a little difficult to discern in the noise.

Some notes from the recording:

0055z - Announcer talking about Uncle Hal (?)
0057z - Announcer talking about questions in the back of your mind..
0044z - Laurie Anderson, "Gravity's Angel"
0049z - Laurie Anderson, "Excellent Birds"
0105z - Laurie Anderson, "The Puppet Motel"

Receiver setup was NetSDR with 325' skyloop.
