BallSmacker Radio 6960.0 kHz AM 01:04 UTC 24 JULY 2021

01:04 UTC - BallSmacker Radio: carrier is up with interval signal;
01:06 UTC - Broadcast begins;
01:46 UTC - Station ID;
02:00 UTC - Station ID: "Most Friday nights, BallSmacker Radio"
02:14 UTC - Carrier dropped at end of song;
02:21 UTC - Carrier came back up with station ID and eQSL for tonight's theme;
