UnId, 2230, 12.31.13.  Drumming since tune in with occasional musical riff.  Still going at 2252.  Gone or faded out at 2256.

Started out at S9 and faded down to about S7 at last hearing.

Tune in at 2304 UTC to drums. Chinese? Pacific islands? Sounds distinctly Asian. Peaks to S9+10 with moderate fading.

S9 and a bit in Wyomissing.  A little fading.  Nice signal.

As everyone writes, drums.  Pacific Island sounds right (Ah, those nights watching "Adventures In Paradise!)

Very nice signal with long, deep fades. All percussion. I don't think I've ever heard a pirate play this type of music before. I might've heard Northwoods Radio play some percussive music before, but I'm not positive.
Thanks for the interesting music!
