Only fair reception into Masset at 02:10 tune-in.  Too weak for Sound Hound to ID.  Anyway, will continue to monitor. 
Got the Stylistics with, You Make me feel brand new at 02:17 then into another song at 02:19.  Tough copy!

At 0215utc tried both Barrington Hills IL and Normal IL sdr's, very weak signal, I can only hear very weak audio under the mud in usb mode,
Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com
