To hear something transatlantic fade up at the top of the hour has been an extremely rare occurrence for me this season. As is often the case, the law of averages do not apply here.

Yet, magically, incredibly, something DID fade in at the top of the hour this morning. On 1510 at 0400, a North American station with US style talk, peaked perfectly! As it did so, it played Earth Wind & Fire's Fantasy, right over the friggin' hour! :cry: :cry: :cry: I guess it was WLAC, or maybe it was somebody else on the same offset, taking over? There are two very close offsets at work here. One is 1510.0003 and the other is 1510.0008. Maybe something new?

Thanks David. It's highly unusual for a US station to have music over the hour. Let's hope it's something interesting as conditions didn't look that great here this morning.

Thank you again for the info David. I wonder who the music station is here. Boston testing? Funny test if so.
