Very good S9+ signal here in NY at 0116 UTC, with a swingin' tune.  Audio sounds nice using the 6 kHz filter on the R8B.

6950 AM, 0119-0127 UTC.  Signal weak to fair into southern Wisconsin, improving at peaks but subject to quite a bit of fading and one l-o-u-d noise floor.  I definitely heard blues rock of some variety, as well as a man's voice giving an ID near 0124-0125, and I'm glad it's been confirmed here because it was difficult to catch. 

I've never heard this one before!  So *this* is Captain Morgan Shortwave!  I wish the signal were coming in better here - darn my setup - because I rather like what I've heard so far.
