That's a Voice of Greece frequency. Check 9420 and it should match with 15630.

They also use 15650 and 7475.

The music does vary quite a bit.

when I went to the shortwave frequency & schedule web site it was showing nothing broadcasting on 15630 at that time radio Greece was listed but at another broadcast time I did check out 9420 and heard nothing from my position. I was checking back and forth on that frequency and that broadcast went on for about 8 hours. I would stop and listen for 30 minutes to an hour at times but never heard any station ID or even a host just music from every origin.

Not all web sites are up to date.

The NASWA schedule does list that freq and time for Greece.  You might want to join the swskeds Yahoo group and download the latest (and updated almost daily) schedule.

Voice of Greece is still being operated by the staff that were fired a couple of months ago. They are sort of illegally running the station and transmitters. The schedule is in a state of chaos as they seem to change their frequency skeds all the time. The government apparently started moving to shut down the ERT transmitters in the last 24 hours although this hasn't effected the shortwave site....yet.
