Booming. S9+20 in the Boston burbs. Weird collage of audio clips about Amway, propaganda, science. No ID so far.

Interesting series of dated clips, sounds like 50's-60's era.  Fair signal here interrupted by deep fades.

0025Z 45433 S9 Amway, sounds of roosters. No ID. Not sure exactly what this is, but entertaining nonetheless.
0049Z Went back to the recording to listen to the ID here... the only intelligible word here was "broadcast."

S6 here.

First noticed at 00:01, satirical look at sales/marketing persuasion techniques
Nostalgic narration and little musical bits.
This program reminds me of some of Negativland's recordings. Can anyone confirm if it is?

00:10 Sound collage with old Amway training material
00:15 Story of the money machine
00:20 Sound effects/chopped up Beatles interview collage
00:23 Rooster crowing/jungle noises/Beatles muzak collage
00:25 Snippets of conversation looped, more Beatles lame covers
00:26 "Eleanor Rigby" Las Vegas style big band version
00:27 Bits of John Lennon talking/sound effects collage
00:35 "Get Back" bits mixed with voices and effects
00:40 "Beatles becoming a household word"
00:45 "Yesterday" (cover) background, woman's voice and dog barking
00:46 "Hard Day's Night" female operatic voice
00:49 quiet pause, little girls voice baby talk, then sounded like op talking
00:51 "What Is This Thing Called AmWay?" song with organ accompaniment
00:55 "I Don't Care What Your Dream Is" loop
00:58 Sales training loops "Welcome To The World of the Professional"

For anyone recording, there was an ID around 2049z. It was quite muffled as hammarhead noted. I did hear the operator say "this is the maiden broadcast of..." but that was about all I could make out. Then it seemed like the clips started to repeat.

6955am huge signal to IN.  10-15 > 9.  Seems to be Amway based content.  Talk of becoming an expert at what you do to be happy, propaganda, Amway song ...No ID the last 10 minutes that I caught. Ah am only retaining 30% of what ah hear so there may have been 3 IDs already.
