Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using a Sony ICF-2010 with a 25 meter (80 ft) longwire antenna in a tree.

0053 UTC: Weak signal just above the noise. Playing what sounds like light airy background music.
0106 UTC: Just had a male talk, sounded like it could have been an ID and email address.
