SIO 333 on the Weston-Super-Mare (UK) SDR.

2058 - hip hop

2118 - same audio heard weakly on K3FEF SDR in northeastern Pennsylvania.
2124 - same audio heard weakly on W1NT SDR in New Hampshire with 500 foot/152 meter beverage antenna pointed at Europe.
Signal is a lot stronger in Weston than anything tried on the east coast of North America.
2128 - brief announcement (no copy) after song then TX off the air.

Given the signal strengths, i'd say very much in the USA - mid-atlantic.
