TCS Relay 6876Am 0045 UTC 14 April 2014
« on: April 14, 2014, 0047 UTC »
A carrier and maybe a male voice---or peskies?  Not real strong here. 0047

Along with others, Band on the Run playing at 0051

Suspect that this might be a TCS relay

COnfirmed via email: From Poet:

Someone's broadcasting the 70s Jukebox show right now on 6876 kHz AM.
