I heard that Station also, the call was KPR
there were three or four IDs  and yes it did slide down the band.

Caught KPR here in N. Central TX earlier Sunday, second catch of KPR for me (first was a few months ago).

6923.6 USB
1446z: Tune up tweeps, a bit of 4 Non Blondes "What's Going On", some country rock.
1450z: Partial ID, sounded like KPR
1455z: BB King "The Thrill Is Gone"
SINPO - 23412

1500z: 4 Non Blondes "What's Going On" again, signal drifted up toward 6923.7
1506z: Blues music. Seems to be drifting between 6923.6/.8, have to keep retuning to maintain pitch.
SINPO - 23311, local noise level up

1511z: ID, still sounded like KPR, OM voice saying something about "...pirate radio..."
1513z: Country music, signal drifting around, pitch keeps shifting
1522z: Something still there but buried under local noise now.
1525z: Faded up again, more blues.
1527z: James Brown, "I Feel Good"
1530z: Positive KPR IDs, with op laughing
1530z: Frank Sinatra, "(I've Got You) Under My Skin"
1555z: Back after long fade out with Chuck Berry "Maybelline"
1558z: "Black Betty"
1601z: Same ID - "KPR... this is KPR (laughter) ...pirate radio... rock of the Rockies"
1605z: Neil Young "Ohio"

SINPO - 22322, local noise way up

90 second mp3 with ID at beginning, a bit of "Witchy Woman" and closing ID. Very noisy but audible: http://www.mediafire.com/?zziz2ijyiwj

Fair signal peaks, lots of sudden fades and pitch shifts or signal drifts. Thin audio but carries fairly well with weak signal.

(Gopher Stomp, TX - Palstar R30C on indoor homebrewed passive loop)

Audio for first 30 minutes, first half weak but not too noisy, latter half very noisy: http://www.mediafire.com/?j4zonggdjw3
