Strong peaks at times but plenty of fading with strong audio. Broadcast of an old WMCA 570/AM NYC "Good Guys" top 40 song list/program from the early 60s. 0720 playing Robert W. Morgan hit list from KHJ L.A. Cali.

"WQXI Atlanta" clips now, sounds like 60s or 70s vintage, in between oldies tunes.  Good signal.  No ID from the station airing this yet, but I strongly assume it's the Big Q.  The Big Q has aired these classic Top 40 AM clips in the past.  This broadcast seems to be all of these classic AM clips brought together.

0900-0933z: Block of WCAO (Balitmore) classic Top 40 clips w/ oldies and old commercials.  Seems to be following this pattern (thanks Google):

Caught some of this too. Generally weak with some nice fade-ups against the normal Chicago MW splatter.

1045z - Jonathan Edwards "Sunshine"
1046z - Deep voiced male chatting about something political
1048z - Three Dog Night "Celebrate"
1057z - Doors "Light My Fire"

Yep fully agree, it was the "Q" with a program twist. Really started coming in strong after 0700. Celestial started dropping into the noise more causing less interference on my favorite BCB Pirate Clear Channel ;D
