I haven't been able to get clear enough copy of this program, which I've heard three times since the weekend, to be certain whether it's an actual WBNY show or a spoof.  Logging what little I could copy in case anyone else heard it more clearly or got a good recording.

6/26/12, 6925 AM, 2340z: Just barely audible via east coast web tuner with good outdoor antenna, usually able to get excellent copy of most free radio broadcasts via this tuner.  Sounds like reprise of recent broadcast with something about "pirate whore of 2011... crybaby... Commander Bunny... spends hours in the closet..."?  Very choppy, only able to copy a few words and phrases here and there.  Doors "Roadhouse" followed by WBNY ID and something about QSLs and PO box, but most of address buried under QRN.  Not a peep via the home tuner.  Can't tell if this is a genuine Commander Bunny show or spoof.  Lots of echo/reverb making it even more difficult to copy clearly.  That's what has me wondering whether this is a parody, since in the past Commander Bunny usually advised programmers using his relay service to avoid using echo/reverb as it hinders intelligibility.

Either way, would appreciate QSL for this unusual broadcast and confirmation of whether it's genuine WBNY or parody station.

SINPO=23232, just barely audible through heavy static crashes and fades. Lots of ute/data QRM and pesque jibber jabber in Spanish or Portuguese.

Not sure if I'm hearing the same station or not, but I'm getting an audible carrier on the sidebands and occasional hip hop type music breaking through the static on AM.  No idea whether or not this's someone else, or Bunny-something.  Nothing intelligible to be heard, aside from drumbeats now and again.
