S7 to S8 signal here, I've got the SDR recorder running, so I'll have something to listen to tomorrow morning.

On until 0620z. Pretty good for most of the time, except QRM from TCS from 0117-0306.

Hard a weak signal at 0110U, and could hear an old time routine and a song. Too tough to dig out more or an ID.
All logs are made from one of my SDRs unless noted

Will still try to get a positive ID, but till then, I'll just call this "The Old Time Radio Show".
