Was parked on 6925 USB when this came on at 0114 UTC. Thought I heard a brief bit of audio at 0111 UTC also. Kind of a funky pop tune playing, but same as Chris L....just popping up above the noise level here.
0020 UTC Song with some percussion intro...funky pop tune
(The T-storm static is really annoying here...snap, crackle, and pop with an occasional ear bleeding crunch!)
0127 UTC XLR8 ID! Into another UNID tune
(The noise is beating me up so I'm calling it a night...thanks for the entertainment tonight XLR8 op...how about a contact email address for us loyal listeners? :) )

XLR8  6925 USB  0117-0130+  JUL 16
Playing music with lots of percussion and occasional voice. Noise levels not too bad at the moment but having a tough time locking in the signal. (Only 1 kHz resolution on the portable I'm using.) Caught clear ID @ 0130.

I'm late, late, laaaaate in logging this, but I had the signal too.  Lots of static here as well, but I managed to hear OMC -- "How Bizarre" (at least in part, tuned in at the end of the song, rats), a snippet of Matchbox 20, and at least part of a song by The Presidents of the United States of America, and yes that's really the band's name.  then into harder rock I didn't recognize.  Caught a clear ID over it: Accelerate.  X L R 8.  Lost to the static not long after. 

Thanks for the show!
