Never heard this one before. Tuned in around 11:45 pm EST to hear the tail end of the program "A Day in the Life of Dennis Day". Very weak signal. Broadcasting in AM.
At 12:00, another OTR broadcast of a show called "Murder at Midnight." Reception goes from S2 to S7.
At 12:28 EST, started an OTR broadcast of "Suspense."
Didn't see the station listed anywhere on this evening so I thought I put up the post to see if it can be identified.

It was a dark and stormy night...dick weed worked on various projects in the confines of his bunker while listening to the crackle and pop of oldtime radio programs broadcasted by an anonymous entity, to which I say.... thanks for the shows! I had a fine copy right up to sign off.

SDR recording catch

0321 Carrier came on, around 6913 kHz. Jumped around quite a bit, finally settled around 6914 kHz. Dead air during this time.
0330 Advertisement for acne medication, then into music. Carrier drifted downwards, was at 6913 kHz by 0335z. Lots more drifting and then sudden jumps back up in frequency (adjustments by the op?).  6914.6 kHz by 0353z

0529 Off
0534 Possibly back on 6895, drifty and jumpy carrier noted about the same signal strength, but no audio.
0918 Still going when the SDR recording ended. It had drifted to 6889 by now.
