Been following this since the C&W version of the Star Spangled Banner at 0003 UTC and it sounds like they're having a regular hoedown out there in West Virginia! Blue Grass at S9 here with deep choppy fades. This was co-channel to an UNID on 6935 USB earlier.
0034 UTC with ID by man announcer..."You are listening to Radio Appalachia". Another ID about a minute later.
0039 UTC Live intro to another C&W tune
0052 UTC Man announcer with ID...."broadcasting from high above Moundsville, West Virginia...Radio Appalachia" into another live intro Bluegrass tune (and a little clip of the Three Stooges in there)
0055 UTC A lady singer with a ballad and mournful fiddle
With the last 3 songs, the hoedown seems to have calmed down a bit!
Sign off at 0112 after a tune by Patsy Cline
THANKS FOR AN AWESOME SHOW HERE TONIGHT APPALACHIA OP!!! It was a pleasant change of pace and there was some damn good fiddle playing and finger picking!

Lots of live older country & bluegrass music
"Radio Appalachia, you are listening to Radio Appalachia, broadcasting from high atop Moundsville, WV, this is Radio Appalachia." by Male announcer with echo.
I believe a song by The Carter Family "Peace in the Valley"
"Old Rugged Cross"
Lots of t-storm noise tonight, but strong signal.
Thanks for the show & please QSL.
