UNID 1620 AM 0248 UTC 9 JAN 2023

The usual Sunday night nonstop music bootleg/pirate is back on after a two-week hiatus for Christmas and New Year's Day, both of which fell on Sundays. This time it is with more of a softer golden-oldies format rather than mostly instrumental easy listening music. Fair to good signal, well above the Cubans. It came on later than usual tonight. I first noticed it at 0248 UTC with Puppy Love, 0250 Tonight I Fell In Love, 0252 On Broadway. As usual it's nonstop music, no ID.

The nonstop music pirate was apparently not on the air last night 16 JAN 2023. Monitored 1620 kHz periodically from 0200 UTC to 0530. Nothing but the Cubans were audible at this location (Western NY).
