Weatherton Road Radio, 6950.7 drifting down to 6949.65 (0136), 0107, 5.30.15.  Program of mostly blues music.  2 unintelligable ID's until finally a clearer one at 0127.

Good blues.  Thanks for the show.

Lots of static crashes tonight
Heard "There goes another love song"
SIO- 333

transmitter frequency drifting down rather badly, can't keep tuned in in side band at the rate they're drifting.

0145 hearing smooth folk style ballad music - nice S9 signal
01:56 blues song - possible ID over the song but it was a
02:02 ID
FAST ID's
02:07 off?
02:11  ---Can hear a carrier (no audio) now at 6.949

02:13 audio came up just now, then faded    ID's are so fast to me I can't Tell if it's Weatherton Road Radio or Weather Control Radio
It's kinda like the famous Jimi Hendrix song phrase: "e'cuse me, while I kiss the sky" but you might hear..."e'cuse me, while I kiss this guy" ;D

02:33 Monkees - Last Train to Clarksville followed by I'm a  Believer
03:14 last ID Weather Control Radio "Have a nice weekend"

Again, using the Melrose Park, Ill. tuner. catching Weatherton Road Radio with a S7-8 and really good audio but dealing with lots of static and fading playing the 'The Outlaws". This is a new catch so I will have to check the recorder we I am back home. Same on the SDR recorder. ID at 0140 and 0300 which is actually "Weather Control Radio". Has now shifted to 6947 the to 6949 playing all sorts of Classic Rock tunes! Heard songs by Lou Reed, Van Morrison, Them,  Monkees, Sam and Dave and INXS. Off at 0313. Any chance of a QSL? Thanks for the great show this evening. NEW CATCH! :mrgreen:

Observed carrier tune up then launched into music - didnt catch first song but second was "I'm waiting for my man" by The Velvet Underground.  Good signal strength into Chicago, just lots of static from storms.
