Bit of a mystery this one playing an old offshore tape from Radio London. Heard in the western coastal scouselands on 1494 kHz 14.52z 28 April 2021 on Perseus SDR and Wellbrook 1530LNP. Checked online Kiwi SDRs and only carriers seen on 1494 are on the Chester and North Wales Kiwis. Nothing in Ireland, West or East Midlands, Manchester or Yorkshire.

Shopping in the West Midlands – When I go to Kwik Save
Self-awareness! – I’m Gormless
His classic existential ditty! – Lying in the pit all day
