Rock oldies at 2325 UTC tune in, strong signal, deep fades though...hearing this on 'regular' (non-SDR) radios here in Maryland...."I Aint Drunk" by Albert Collins at 2327....followed at 2132 by Yo' Family (Don't Like Me) by James Harman.  Finally heard "Captain Morgan Shortwave" twice at 2336 UTC (6:36 PM EDT)....abrupt off at about 2340 UTC

EQSL appreciated thanks....Captain Morgan

Tuned in at 2332 UTC and heard traces of music in AM mode. Listening in USB, I can hear weak music just above the noise out here.

Well, I heard a few minutes of it before signoff around 2339 UTC.
