Pounding in here at 0123 UTC with an awesome S9 signal on 6150.5 ish KHZ with some kind of Jamaican childrens tune!
0125 UTC Andy Walker talk about last song and next tune (will be the last song)...Channel Z ID followed by song
0127 Andy with "Before They Were Famous" Part 3....Channel Z ID, Looney tunes clip, then silence. (Carrier still on!)
Tuned in late tonight....remarkable audio here! Thanks Z and thanks Andy!
0133 UTC  :) Back on with Part 4!!! Excellent signal makes for great listening!!!

Edit:Listened instead of posting details here last night, while reading old POP COMM articles and was surprised after 0233 UTC end of  Part 4 program when I heard that familiar Soviet Anthem and the voice of Dick Weed announcing a rare "remote broadcast"!!! I thought this was "Z" at first relaying RFW, but from the comments in the RFW posting it looks like PRB Relays doing the good deed as it was their frequency.

Something weak on 6150.5.  Music, then talk but I can't make out what is being said.

Channel Z, 6150.5am, 5-3-14, 34432
Clear ID by Andy Walker at 0158z. Good strong S7 signal - audio seems a touch weak to me.

I can hear something (S3-S5), but the audio is fairly weak.   Radio is letting some bleed over from 6165 (Radio Cuba) which is killing it.

Getting faint music hear with talk, fading out into the noise. Having better luck listening on USB but still very faint. Too bad the signal wasn't stronger. :-\
