Ongoing with a Christmas tune when I tuned in.  Mostly poor copy, S4 with fades.
2028 - off
2029 - moved to 6875 with "Here Comes Santa Claus"
2032 - "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer"
2033 - "I'll Be Home For Christmas"
2037 - Christmas wishes and ID
2042 - "White Christmas"
2043 - "Santa Baby"
2053 - sounded like a YL announcer, mostly in the noise now
2100 - still seeing a carrier but audio is buried in noise :(
