Here also at 2227 UTC with steel drum tune
(I have it closer to 6955.2 AM. There is a some loud buzzing noise making things difficult :()
2231 UTC OM with ID! My first time hearing WMPR! :), then back to the bouncy steel drum tune
2233 UTC ID and back to the song
2235 UTC ID by OM then YL said something briefly, then same song
2241 UTC OFF

 Hey WMPR...how about an email on what the name of that catchy Steel Drum tune was? :)
