Fair signal in western NY, seems best on 6934.96  LSB
0228z  Some sort of Brit count-down
0235z  "Get Back" by the Beatles
2237z  Booker T and the MGs
2239z  "BBC World Service, coming up to 2325 Greenwich Mean Time", then bells
2239z  Jackie Wilson and "Higher and Higher", announcer refers to the Whitsun Holiday
0246z  "O Happy Day", by Edwin Hopkins Trio (program seems to be repeating)
0251z  "Love Me Tonight" by Tom Jones
0254z  "Tony Blacburn with BBC World Service", Smoky Robinson and the Miracles
0256z  "Dizzy"
0307z  Program is looping, once again, with Booker T.

Seems to be a show from 1969 judging from the music, very solid into Milford PA SDR. Poor signal into Wessex UK SDR, which I checked since after all the program originated in the UK :)
« Last Edit: March 30, 2024, 0250 UTC by n2avh »
Big into SWDX late 70s through early 90s, then forgot about it and when I returned via SDRs it wasn't at all what I remembered, but I'll deal with it. Grumble, grumble. All SDRs acknowledged, nothing is from my own radio.
