 Playing what sounds like big band style music and old news casts at 19:40 UTC. Hard copy here into NE Ohio today, S4 signal which is just a little over the noise level.

- Signal picking up considerably at 19:53 UTC. World War Two news reel program

Killer S9 AM signal here on about 6925.5 KHZ from tune-in at 1937 UTC with Soviet Anthem, into opening ID by DJ Dickweed. "Time Warp" program for 1945. Gave email address for requests for copies of this program.
1940 UTC Song-swing era tune
1950 UTC WW2 era newscast from the Pacific (Guam) Nice clear signal!
1953 UTC Actual battle sounds with guns ablazing! Cool...
1956 UTC Some of the Navy boys singing a song, then announcer about the battle for IWO. Some minor signal fading, but still S8. More sounds of battle. Back to Guam.
2008 UTC Song {woman vocalists..sounds like the McGuire Sisters or somebody like that}
2011 UTC Song {jazzy instrumental swing intro then woman vocalist}
2020 UTC Newscaster reading blurb about surrender of Germany, into Song-"There I've Said It Again"{Always thought this was a Bobby Vinton tune!}
2038ish UTC Off abrupt {Thanks for another entertaining Time Warp Mr. Dick Weed!}
