Fair signal audible in USB via the Northern Utah SDR, even a trace of a signal heard directly here in USB.

0040 UTC: Sounds like it's from the "JCS" soundtrack.
0043 UTC: Just barely heard the ID, into another soundtrack song.

SINPO=55444, super strong signal!

047- "Simon Zealotes/Poor Jerusalem."

057- "I Don't Know How to Love Him."

107- Still coming in strong and crystal clear with "The Last Supper."
108- "Gethsemane (I Only Want to Say)."
112- YL IDs "This is WJCS" over song, and then it continues.
113- "The Arrest." What's the buzz, tell me what's happening...
117- YL IDs "WJCS."
117- "King Herod's Song (Try It And See)."
120- "Judas's Death."
122- "Trial Before Pilate."
124- The iconic JCS melody arises...."Jesus Christ Superstar."
129- Silence for about 10 seconds, then signal off.

Thanks for the show and reminding me of listening to this and Godspell in the 70s from my parents' record collection!

e-QSL welcome and appreciated!

SDR recording catch from 0030 sign on, with a very good signal.

BTW, I had a very very weak carrier from someone or something, else, as early as 2135 UTC on 6965.215 vs 6965.020 for WJCS.
