South of Norfolk, Ne on the car radio heading to work, 1680 AM W/90s R&B, dance. Strong with little fading. No ID. Taking me back to my High School days! Nice!

WPRR Grand Rapids, MI plays this format on 1680. Any chance it was them?

Good question. Knowing my luck the ID probably popped up right after heading inside.

There is a pirate station that plays hip hop, funk, old school from the 70s up to newer r&b on 1680. I picked it up in elk river and it's much clearer in North Minneapolis. There are no call letters, no dj, no commercials, just music. I downloaded the wprr app on my phone and it is definitely not them. I used to pick up wprr last year but this new pirate station prevents me from picking up wprr. Wprr would come in faintly, had commercials and a dj. This new station is clear, and does not need my passive loop antenna. The new pirate station started around the first of January, give or take a few weeks.
