Solid S9 copy here, lots of ID and music (Cure, etc.), strong signal but modulation is definitely heavier on the upper sideband of this AM signal.  Thanks for the music!

02:35 Just tuned in. Solid S7-8 signal. OP's audio is a bit stronger than the music portion.
02:46 strong ID
02:49 CW signal coming in over the music.
03:15 Still hearing music, but the signal fluxes widely as though there is a secondary signal coming in. (drops to an S5 then peaks at S9 -S10. The music sound "underneath" the S10 signal.
03:20 Clear ID  Radio Free Whateverrrrrr (drawn out R)

Thanks for the Show!

Decent carrier, but weak audio into GA. 0302Z. Could hear the op talking, but could not copy any of it.
