UNID 1620 AM 0055 UTC 30 JAN 2023

The Sunday night nonstop easy-listening music pirate is back tonight, undoubtedly the same operator that was on last night with golden oldies. I tuned in to 1620 at 0055 UTC and it was already on the air, so not sure exactly when the transmission began tonight. But here is what I monitored so far:  0055 O Dio Mio - Annette Funicello, 0058 Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White - Eddie Calvert, 0101 Theme from Summer of '42 - Peter Nero. Fair to good to very good, definitely the most dominant station on the frequency, well above the usual Cubans/R. Rebelde. 0103 Impossible Dream - Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme, 0106 Jerusalem - Herb Alpert, 0109 Midnight Cowboy - Ferrante & Teicher. Still on the air with a mostly very strong signal tonight here in WNY. I am monitoring as usual with my Airspy Discovery and AD sloper. 0119 Wonderland By Night - Bert Kaempfert...Still on the air at 0229 but QRM is now more noticeable with deeper fades. A Cuban sometimes breaks through on top. 0230 Release Me - Englebert Humperdinck.

Got them at 18:48 UTC on an SDR from New Castle, PA. Can't seem to get them from my home, about 30 miles south.

Playing Pump Up The Volume.

On the SDR it's coming in here just before 2PM local time like a local station.
