From 0140, hair metal heard w/OM vocals. Fair-good, with mild-moderate static, no interference and good audio.

SDR recording catch. This was actually the 1720 pirate that QSY'd to 1710 at 0120: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,75480.0.html
Along with a second pirate! Check out the waterfall below. But who is who?

0120 Chicago "Just You N' Me"
0124 "Saturday In The Park"
0128 Off

0140 Back on (or is this the other pirate?)  Ratt "Round And Round", the reception was not as good as earlier, due to QRM from other stations.
0151 "Cherry Pie"
0156 "Come Kross"
0200 Off... so I think I was (mostly) hearing the pirate with the drifting carrier.
