SIO 444 here in MD at 2215z.
I was going to say... this does not sound like the real Radio USA in any way.

Radio USA, 6930 USB, 2214, 12.30.17.  Choppy vocal into series of Radio USA ID's with short musical breaks between, a special treat - song about Ohio.

S4-5 just barely above a local noise blob.

Weird. Sounds like the fake Radio USA with WWII-era German music. I've never heard of a recording of this floating around, so I guess this is original op, back to harass a variety of DXers
