Unid (D-Day coverage) 6955 AM 1758 UTC 19 OCT 2023
« on: October 19, 2023, 1809 UTC »
Not sure if same broadcaster as earlier,  Reception better than earlier but still noisy/fades. 
1758 "Over NBC radio network.....one of our War Correspondents" (OM almost sounds like FDR giving speech, but not him)
1800 "Bulletin, after bulletin pouring in......"
1803 "American public will be informed of all invasion updates....." 
1804 Other OM identifies first as Robert St. John
1806 Might be coverage to D-Day invasion - Hilter & France mentioned (My note: St. John covered D-Day for NBC)
1809 OM identifies it as invasion of Normandy
1811 mention of Churchill
1825 NBC newsroom broadcast continues....."Liberation of Europe"
1827 Live coverage (then) of bell tolling at Independence Hall, Philadelphia
1835 Had to leave room and missed end/off, in past 5 minutes
