Huh... I've tried listening for that myself, but 1630KCJJ over in Iowa just walks in here after dark. So, I'm not likely to here that Tater Patch Radio where I am.
I can't decide upon what's worst, young and stupid, or old and chemically dumbed down.

That TPR1630 must be nearer to y'all, since y'all seemed to be the only ones hearing that. Boomer, near P-burgh, has tried jumping from on-line SDR to SDR to catch this. no can do, (As Hall & Oats would sing.) That KCJJ1630,  https://www.1630kcjj.com/   just walks in here too strong in WV. Interesting format that they have though, maybe the latest from Mary J Bly, then AC / DC - Shook Me All Night Long.
