0102 UTC OM says "Now it's time for the traffic report...KAT", followed by a rockabilly tune-OM singer
0103 UTC OM and YL? speaking now..."He resembles Ross Perot..."...the rest is difficult to hear. "People of this planet...twilight zone...PRI-Pirate Radio International", then music with OM talking over..."It's a Martian"..."28 years eating hamburgers"..."what you eating there boy"...music continues
0109 UTC Latin beat tune from 60's era...lyrics mentioning "The Blob"

0115 UTC Funky song with sultry voiced YL singer
0117 UTC Swinging blues tune with piano bass and drums-YL? singer...lyrics "I better get out of town....ooh ooh ooh"

Only seeing a carrier at 6934.984 with just a bit of low freq modulation visible on the waterfall. Lots of QRN here with storms moving in.
