Decent carrier on 6770 kHz this evening, hearing an OM reading a radio ad at 2328 UTC "First in recorded music, first in television...and by Chesterfield [cigarettes]"  Lots of fading, but I can hear music playing and an OM talking at 2329 UTC.  S2-S3 signal

Possibly an episode of the Jack Benny show at 0012 UTC.
It's hard to tell right now because the signal is weak but seems undermodulated. If it were more strongly modulated, it might help with readability.
SIO 242.
Just somebody with a radio, a computer and a pair of headphones...
