S6-S8 here with oldies.  I just tuned in and haven't caught an ID yet.  Assuming this is Channel Z based on the prior report.  If so then nice to hear you again!

Weak copy in NH, with SINPO=15221.

0:39- Oldies tune
0:42- OM DJ
0:42- Oldies tune
0:44- OM DJ
0:45- Back to Oldies

Signal is lifting out of the QRN gradually, so I hope to make out the program soon.

Clearer as the broadcast continues.

0:55- OM IDs last song and then station. British accent? Reads multiple listener postings/comments at 0:56. "Really enjoys 60s music." Listeners from NJ, Florida, etc.
0:58- He gives the PO Box 109, Blue Ridge Summit, PA address, then back to oldies music.

Nice clear channel here with excellent AM audio at 0045 UTC tune-in with another early song from somebody who was later famous! Rock solid S9
0046 UTC Clearly this is Andy Walkers voice here describing the last song, and then the next song..."Graham Gouldman...The Mockingbird"
0047 UTC "The Mockingbird"-Graham Gouldman
0049 UTC Andy Walker ..."Before They Were Famous-Part 2"
0050 UTC "Dandy"-Rockin Vickers (Early Lemme from Motorhead)
0055 UTC Andy Walker gave numerous shoutouts to those reporting a previous reception of Channel Z
0103 UTC end of the first tune by Genesis, then Andy Walker describing next song as some early Eric Carmen, then Supertramps first song "Forever"
0110 UTC ..."Andy Walker production for Channel Z". Gave snail mail address (Blue Ridge), email address, then "Thank you very much for listening... until the next time... Andy Walker in London followed by the Looney Tunes clip!, then off at 0111 UTC
Hey Andy...you have an open invite here! Come back anytime you feel like it! Thanks for another well researched program of the first tunes by artists that later became famous. That version of Dandy by future Motorhead Lemme was really cool! Special thanks also to Z for the great relay and audio here. 6150.5 was wide open tonight! "Clear Channel, Channel Z". You won tops down for the best sound in the 49 meter band tonight!

Receiving here also with a S6-7 signal and really good audio bit suffering from some really harsh local QRM( happening on both radios-bummer :-\), anyway hearing the Andy Walker Show along with oldies tunes including Mockingbird. Thanks for the show Channel Z, different choice of freq. :)
