Radio Corsair 1710 AM 0003 UTC 25 Sep 2019

Weak under heavy static and best on my North antenna with relaxing instrumental music.  This definately isn't Tater Patch Radio.  Also found it on the Rockport, Maine Kiwi SDR with a much better signal.  Guessing this is the same one that Chris Lobdell reported a few days ago on 1710.

EDIT: ID and email heard at 0043 UTC with what sounded like Radio Corsair with email address and solicitation of reception reports(!)

Off at 0153 UTC with no further announcements.

Thanks for the nice music and the ID!

At times fairly decent signal here in Toronto, Ontario.   Some of the music reminded me of the pirate WMPR.

I have recognised nothing aside from what I think was an instrumental version of "Virtual Insanity" at 0103 UTC.

Heard the ID but could not make out the entire e-mail address.
