I think this may be a rebroadcast of a tape rather than a live relay. “The Mighty 690” was a border blaster in Tijuana for listeners in California but they no longer carry this format. Also, the cassette ad gives away the fact that it’s a recording.

Thanks for the broadcast, please QSL.

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.
