SINPO=23342 (with a little Pesky action underneath).

055- "She's A Beauty" by The Tubes.
058- OM recorded IDs "commercial free classic alternative...." gives FM frequency and then "also heard on 91.5," with K- commercial call letters. KKUP?
058- OM recorded speaking, into...
058- "One Step Beyond" by Madness.
100- "Pretty Baby" by Blondie.
101- Music stops. Then OMs & YL recorded with old time radio show. Talking Beverly Hills. Studio audience. Ah yes, definitely a young George Burns.

Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using a Kenwood TS-570D or RTL-SDR V3 with a 40 meter band Inverted V at 50 feet.

6925 USB
0117 UTC: Katrina and the Waves "Walking on Sunshine," The Cure "Friday I'm in Love"
0127 UTC: Tracey Chapman, Fast Car
0133 UTC: Fixx, One Thing Leads to Another
0135 UTC: WKKL ID
0146 UTC: Off or faded out

Might have been an ID in there. Seems to be real time relay of WKKL, 90.7, college station. Playlists match.

Can't seem to tune this station to pitch to match the web stream version. Sounds slightly off no matter how I tune my receiver. Maybe the Palstar lacks fine enough increments, dunno.
