Community Radio Network 1710 AM 2245 UTC 18 Nov 2018
« on: November 18, 2018, 2250 UTC »
Good conditions on MW this evening.  Hearing music on 1710, along with what sounds like the PA 911 site underneath.
2245 - "I Love Paris" Franck Pourcel
2249 - "You Turned The Tables On Me" Helen Ward
2257 - YL talking
2301 - "Your Cheatin' Heart" Joni James
2310 - "Lonely Day" Bill Withers
2314 - "The Green Door" Jim Lowe
2315 - "Face The Fact" Ted Nilsson & Mikey Dalton
2320 - quick jingle (which I couldn't make out), then into "Greenfields" The Brothers Four
0100 - still there with "Love And Marriage", OM announcer at top of hour with 'station identification', but didn't hear the actual identification.
At least it seems they may ID at the top-of-hour

2253 Hearing music underneath what sounds like the Hudson County QRM source... err... TIS station.
2257 Definite music for sure, 50s rat pack style, mixing in with the Hudson County TIS, also heard a YL talking which could be Springfield Armory.
2316 Arlo Guthrie "City Of New Orleans", starting to fade out a bit now.

Hearing it too from West Michigan but very weak and mostly below the noise floor.  Occasional decent fade-ups though with adult standards music.  At 2300 UTC top of hour, DTFM touch-tone type sound effects heard which confirms this is the station I've been hearing and logging here as the "West Rockingham" station, though I have yet to catch a clear ID other than a generic "AM 17-10" and "Community Radio" mentions.
