Indira Calling, playing Beach Boys music shortly after it was heard.  Fair to good signal but noisy.

Tune in at 220 UTC on about 6874.8 KHZ with what I guess is a version of "Wendy" by the Beach Boys augmented with a little subcontinental sitar! Different for sure. Good signal...
2224 UTC man announcer with Indian accent gave his name and ID as India(or Indira) Calling and faux address..."Calcutta, 02098". Into hilarious pastiche of Beach Boys tunes mixed with Indian music. Bizarre and a welcome break after the mixture of Heavy Metal and Classic Rock heard this weekend.
2232 UTC {VeeJay I guess} with ID and faux address and long string of numbers by woman announcer I assume is a overseas fake phone number(?). More mangled Beach Boys!
2238+ UTC with some kind of mantra by Veejay followed by what I thought was an IS...not sure, but it was repeated several times. 2241 UTC with address (I live in Massachusetts but have never been to Calcutta, Rhode Island). Followed by "a request from ? in Cleveland, Ohio".
{subcontinental asian techno pop} and then address at 2250.
Off at 2301 after address and phone #(well a long string of numbers anyway).
Great show! Veejay must be very adept at Audacity to put this together.

S9 and good audio.  Thought this was Partial India Radio at first - announcer said his name was Veejay.
Playing Beach Boys music from their concert in India [supposedly ;-)].

Good signal here, nice audio. Tuned in to hear the Beach Boys rework, looped chant, a few tunes, maybe a grocery store ad, sprinkled with many IDs. Swallowed up by the static at around  2245z. Interesting show!
