Got it here too; S5 in NY, but easy to copy the audio.  Brief announcement by Frans at 2254 UTC.

Signal has improved now to S7.  Just heard "Is She Really Going Out With Him", then some SSTV at 2310 UTC, and then  "LA Woman". Audio sounding real good on the Doors track.

A noisy S6 here @ 0000z with a blues-rock tune, too much noise to ID it though.  6295 is a tough frequency for me, plagued by spurs/mixing products from a religious broadcaster most days.
