It's down in the noise, barely audible, but there's a station there playing music.
Located in Michigan.  Using an ICOM IC-7200 with a homebrew 20 foot vertical in the backyard.

I've been tuned to this since 2345utc while watching Superman and Batman, very weak signal with occasional bits of audio under increased noise, R2000 and temporarily repaired dipole (heavy wet snow hit Chicagoland).  
Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

I had a carrier a long time and I would bet I did hear Paul Hardcastle's 19 at 0052 utc.

(And apparently even the carrier was from some other station because it is still on, just weaker)
