2358Z Fair to poor in the thunderstorm noise in GA. Sounds like an old radio broadcast or something the like.

Heard a mention of Channel Z at 0002. Giving the BRS mail addy, and a gmail email addy. British accent announcer

Signal is coming up since 0020Z, now its fair to good on peaks. Interesting show....0037Z

A smidge above 6925AM, British announcer doing a top 10 type of thing (gitahh player is just 17) 0000 then BRS maildrop mentioned.  Pretty noisy but can make it all out.

First heard at 2341 UTC with 2001 Space Odyssey remix and eventually into "Channel Z Radio" with British announcer and 60s music with talk about the bands between songs.  Static on the heavy side tonight, S5 to S6.
