2244 UTC YL announcer talking (S7 peaks here and I have the frequency as 6973.4 AM)

2249 UTC Music YL singer in foreign language...for want of a better ID "world music"
2252 UTC Unid song...touch of mambo in this one
2256 UTC Unid song-YL singer
2300 UTC Music/jingle? Jazzy tune next
2304 UTC Different song now with a Latin beat OM singer
2308 UTC "Call Me"?-OM singer
Seems to a mix of Brazilian artist tunes
2322 UTC YL speaking again....mention of "Bossa Nova"
2330 UTC Song now-YL singer
2335 UTC Unid song-YL singer (makes me feel like I'm on a beach at Copacabana)
Need to run a quick errand....will leave the recorder running
0000 UTC OFF after YL speaking over jazzy piano music. Still did not hear a clear ID!

Thanks for the ID Marcy1....good ears! I was leaning towards "WBOG" at first because of the frequency, but ?

Thanks for the evening of Bossa Nova tunes whoever!

There's been a Brazilian on that frequency for couple of decades. There was a Brazilian guy who used to post on this board who confirmed it, but I can't remember the handle he used. I had xtal for 6973 and used to check that frequency when the usual Stateside frequencies were overrun. I could always hear faint music, but no id's.

The station you are probably thinking of is Lupo Radio. The guy who used to post here from Brazil was probably Daniel Wyllyans. I don’t think it could have been Lupo Radio because of 3 reasons 1. His signal way stronger than a low powered Latin American would have been in the USA, 2. There was no signal with the Caribbean Netherlands KiwiSDR, not even a carrier, 3. The station announcer spoke English

That was the guy. There was another guy in Venezuela that used to log it, too, but he dropped out of sight when the political turmoil in that country got out of hand.
