Enough of a signal to know something's there (faint music) but some horrible QRN of some sort is just hammering it. It would likely be copyable (albeit faintly) if it weren't for that.
0143 got antenna positioned and now I'm getting it! A skit is playing out, hard to make out everything being said. Video to follow.
0145 WREC ID into Living After Midnight/Judas Priest
0149 WREC ID and farewells, then QRT.
