 8)  Good S 9 plus in the foot hills. Rap music, but not heard ID yet... :'(
Gave ID ... radio, but I could not catch what was said.  Doing some classic rock and roll.

2327 more program on frequency. No ID heard. "Welcome to The Party"


Some slow fading, but over all S 9 and clear channel here..2331UTC
Believe I heard "unidentified radio" ??

SIO 434 around northeast US. Music mix, a bit of everything but mostly hip-hop. Peskie QRM from 6945 LSB then switched to 6940 LSB.

2242 - Id several times in computerized voice but just couldn't make sense of it.
2243 - Little Richard - Tutti Fruiti but off mid-song.

2320 - Back on again. Snippet of Tutti Fruiti again.
2330 - VERY CLEAR ID "You are listening to Unidentified Radio" repeated thrice, into Led Zeppelin.
2335 - "You are listening to Unidentified Radio. Thank you to digitalmod for the nice pic" repeated thrice.
2339 - ID onto Led Zeppelin, from The BBC collection, I believe.
2345 - "Dancing Days"
2348 - ID onto a snippet of LZ
2350 - switched over to "American Woman".
2353 - "You are listening to Unidentified Radio, which is a clever name for an unidentified radio station."
0000 - off

Probably them again with more hip-hop around 0055. Did not catch an ID.
