AM signal playing music, almost sounded like the Dropkick Murphies, then into a voice ID (??). Signal is not strong in the Boston burbs and the audio may be a little low.

6975 AM
0013 UTC I'll Be Your Santa Baby, Rufus Thomas, other Xmas R&B funk songs. Good audio and signal peaks with some fading, via MD SDR with ginormous sky loop. Just a carrier via home rx with indoor antenna.
0015z Jingle Bell Rock, Hall & Oates
0017z Santa Claus Slide (remix), Big G
0022z dead air for a minute, back with Irie Christmas rumbling dub bass, Freddie McGregor
0030z deep fade, even carrier barely there now

Good while it lasted, thanky kindly.

0103z peaked just enough briefly to copy Christmas Time is Here Again by The Flirtations
0104z keyboard instrumental, just barely audible, no ID, Shazam sez maybe Natural Born Dub (Riverside Xmas remix), Hiroshi Fujiwara
0112z Jingle Bells, Shawn Lee's Ping Pong Orchestra, signal peaking a bit stronger now and then, still fadey

Two recordings, first much stronger than second: https://archive.org/details/xmas-music-22-dec-2022-0013-0030-utc-6975-sam/Xmas-music_22Dec2022_0110UTC_6975-SAM.wav
