Weak but audible music on the Machias, Wash., SDR a few miles south of me here near Seattle. Also listening on the Burke, Va., SDR, where the clear signal is hitting S7.

2231 UTC “Sit down, I think I love you” by The Mojo Men
2233 UTC: OM repeating “CQ Radio” ID
2233 UTC: “San Francisco” by Scott McKenzie
2236 UTC: "Already, CQ Radio for your listening pleasure ...," a few more repeated IDs and then, "CQ Radio signing off."

And that was that. Sorry I didn't tune in earlier. Please QSL!

Now back on 6941 kHz USB ... Still weakly audible on the Machias, Wash., SDR and just barely audible on my own radio out here.

2255 UTC: "I Can Make it With You" by the Pozo-Seco Singers
2256 UTC: OM announcer repeating CQ Radio IDs again
2257 UTC: "Mr. Bojangles" by Jerry Jeff Walker
2300 UTC: "Me and Bobby McGee" by Kris Kristofferson
2304 UTC: "Bobby McGee ... CQ Radio," OM announcer said, then talked about calling the boats at sea, then "do we have any aircraft listening," etc. Then said he was shutting down ...
2305 UTC: Started a few different songs, then settled on playing "Stand on the Rock" by Fleetwood Mac.
2309 UTC: Off. Thanks for the music!
