S9 with Caribbean Netherlands KiwiSDR. Talk and music in Spanish. Music Shazam can’t ID. Googling 6017 kHz brings up websites identifying it as Unknown Mexican or a Colombian Pirate. Anyone have an ID?

0200 UTC-Signal better than before, now I can see that the signal is very wide (LSB going down to 6005 kHz at times). Mostly instrumental music now. Sounds like old recordings. Carrier on 6017.24 kHz.
0218 UTC-Colombian national anthem
0219 UTC-Brief talk by male in Spanish, lots of reverb
0221 UTC-OFF

Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Songs that Shazam can’t identify are listed as Unknown Music. Reception from my QTH is using a Sony ICF-2010 with an 11 meter inverted V antenna.

- - - - Here is my Apr 6, 2022 log and a very helpful reply from Rafael in Colombia:

UNID (Colombia?). Thanks to Bill Harms (New York) for the tip about a possible pirate. Heard on 6017.20, on Apr 6,
from 0333 till cut off in mid-song at 0344* UT; signal slowly improving the whole time; non-stop LA ballads; never
heard any announcers; poor reception. Fortunately no signal today was heard from Zanzibar on 6015. My audio is
at http://bit.ly/3NQv56t .

Am very grateful to Rafael for his informative comments about the pirate station on 6017.2 kHz. Ron
 
"Greetings from Colombia, yes the signal on 6017,20 kHz it`s a Colombian pirate station identified as "Organización Radial El Prado."
They have been operating irregularly for a year, always with long musical sessions without announcers, they don't even report TC.
It has an irregular schedule opening around 2230 or 2330 UTC and closing 0200 or 0300 UTC even later. It is not every day,
sometimes during the week days and other times only Fridays and Saturdays. I heard an identification a couple of months ago,
then there hasn't been much talk, it's called "Organización Radial"  because it mentioned operating two signal more, on 88.1 MHz
as Prado Stereo and 98.1 MHz as Musical Stereo, I guess also without an operating license. It seems to be transmitting from the
municipality of Palermo in the department of Magdalena, although very close to the cities of Soledad and Barranquilla in the
department of Atlantico, where I think they direct their broadcasts. They have been very careful not to mention any means of
contact. the signal has moved from 6016.3 to 6017.2 KHz for which it has come out late

Thanks for the ID. This can be moved to Latin American pirate.

0027 UTC I checked this out today and there is a distinct carrier on 6017.2ish AM here. I listened for a bit and had some threshold music at 0033 UTC. Signal faded deep after a few minutes, but a weak carrier is still there.
0055 UTC Another threshold fadeup of unid music

Radial?! That's nothin'. We had Tire Pressure Radio over 20 years ago in the U.S.A.
