i was just about to start a new topic but Joe Flips beat me to it lol
at first, i thought this was a front-end overload by a broadcast AM station, very good sound quality here, S7-9 on the K3FEF remote SDR (K3FEF keeps cutting out, too many users, not enough bandwidth, are you streaming on TS Chris ?)
i was trying to receive "Yeah Man" but couldnt find a free online SDR but i found "Radio Ola"
2124z - can hear the announcer quite well but audio is breaking up, bad connection with the microphone perhaps ?
2128z - very wide audio, above 10 Khz - now the audio on the microphone sounds excellent, near studio quality, just like the music

Good signal here with '70s rock, then ID with e-mail address. Audio breaking up on the announcement. Maybe overdriven?

live time checks throughout. Very long, very deep fades. Standells "Dirty Water" at 2145

BTW, I heard the announcer say 3.5 watts, too. If so, this is a pretty remarkable range of copyable signals for only 3.5 W of AM!

Op verified the power on the air & said it's solar powered & it's from his mom's basement. Thanks for the info!

Radio Olah, 6930 AM, 2117, 2.25.18.  Fady signal with music and man talking.  Finally at 2128 heard an ID and mention of HF Underground.  right at static floor on fades, S6 at peaks.

Just usable in Wyomissing.  Lots of noise make it difficult.

OM with live time check then into Dirty Water, sounded great with +/- 10 kHz wide signal, then dropped to a carrier shortly after, back again at S8 at 2150z.  Huge signal fluctuations!  Great audio on the peaks.  3-1/2 watt mentions to Andy Yoder at 2150z.

Thanks for the music!
