3360 Radio JPJ (Jesús Párraga Jiménez). Audible 0824 with definite music here from this new Peruvian. Heard 0826 what sounded like a jingle with last syllable in last word repeating like an echo. Into lively pop-like music sounding like Ramones "I Wanna Be Sedated"!! Another rock song to 0833 with another brief echo jingle. Definitely "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor at 0837-0840, then echo jingle again but local interference taking over. Same jingle at 0844 as the 0826. Stronger audio at 0850 with jingle just before "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" remake by Cyndi Lauper. Dance remake of "Bette Davis Eyes" at 0858 going to 0900, and into next dance song. "Sweet Child O Mine" by Guns N Roses at 0917. Sounded like more tropical Latin American pops at 0955. Gradually faded but still audible at 1007. The jingles heard on the website match up pretty well with what I heard. It would have been much easier if not for the horrendous QRN. (11 August)
