Started out at 0317z weak, but now up to S9.

Playing a parody of the "Dragnet" TV show.

Yes, much noise from 6920, sounds like the the symphonic Pink Floyd guy.

Sounds like audio from Dragnet TV series S-7 in static.

Programming sort of matches what I heard on 6925 khz, 5/27.  Tuned in on my DX-390 to hear what sounded like 30's or 40's music, and it went off air abruptly at 0425 UTC.  SIO maybe 252.  Didn't hear the signal long enough to note exact strength, very weak and hard to read in noisy conditions.  AM mode.
An AM radio Boombox DXer.
+ GE SRIII, PR-D5 & TRF on MW.
The usual Realistic culprits on SW (and a Panasonic).
