S6 with fades, sounds like continuous fast-paced DTMF tones
0240 - music for several seconds and then off
0246 - Price Is Right theme music
0303 - YL with SS numbers
0304 - sounded like a commercial station ID, then into more fast-paced DTMF tones

UnId, 6960 AM, 0236, 7.3.17.  Dial tones, Price is Right theme, siren, chimes, 5 set SS YL numbers (10 sets), tone, another 10 sets, woman singing, indistinct talk, more numbers (couldn't tell how many with fade), phone tones.

Good deal of noise and fading here, so varying from inaudible to fair.  Mostly poor.
