Radio Australia dominating 6150 here but there's another weaker signal at 6149.61, best heard using LSB to dodge RA.  Signal seems to be picking up somewhat:

1103z: Song, unknown, female vocals.
1108z: Song, male vocals, lyrics "I will always love you", sounds familiar (The Cure maybe?)
1109z: Transition into instrumental song.
1116z: Still there with music but weaker right now.
1120z: Song transition
1130z: Still there with music but RA is killing all the fun

Good morning RTP! Unfortunately I'm getting Radio Australia with an S9 signal here on 6150 KHZ//9580 KHZ at 1050 UTC. There is an audible but weak heterodyne. I don't know when they sign off. Reception conditions are good this morning too! RA is pretty much "dead on" 6150.
1103 UTC I'm getting some music underneath RA now and the het is stronger than before. I believe that as the absorption increases, RA will diminish and PBR will come through better....at least from my QTH!
Yes! I'm hearing you on 6149.6 ish KHZ at 1109 UTC with music almost at level with RA! I'm using LSB though. On AM, about equal with a loud het. I am not familiar with the tunes being played....don't have Shazam!
1121 UTC Song with electronic keyboard intro male vocal group with good signal...still using LSB. AM is a mess with RA and het!
1124 UTC Clear ID, "2014 Mix Tape Special" gave email and Belfast address for QSL
1136 UTC A kinda eerie sounding instrumental intro tune now. I'm getting some fading and splatter from RA, but LSB still fairly clear.
1144 UTC OP with ID, email, and Belfast address...2014 Mix Tape Special. Signal on AM is now at equal level with RA (but big Het!).
1148 UTC OFF? I still have a Het...maybe just open carrier?
1150 UTC Het gone, so I guess you signed off...thanks for the early Sunday morning program PBR! Now it's out to the backyard for some badly needed yard cleanup!

Thanks all, we went off at 1148. I guess I need to find a new crystal with a different frequency for AMs.
