[IRCA] Asian program on 570 kHz covering KVI Seattle

2016-10-13 Thread Dennis Vroom via IRCA
--- Begin Message --- Tuned 570 this morning and found a station broadcasting Asian programming. Completely dominating KVI Seattle. 7:35-7:46 PDT. Signal is now even with KVI at 7:47 PDT with male speaker singing. No commercials during this time period. Any ideas?  Best regards, Dennis  Vroom,
