Guyana back on shortwave

3289.975 kHz   Voice of  Guyana  
Heard in amidst of the UTE here, first noted at 0118 UTC. MOR W vclist at 0331 recheck.   Quite readable at 0336, and at 0337 w/Johnny Mathis-like song, and another at 0346-0348. Then "Last Date" by Floyd Cramer, cutoff, and into a diff. song.   0357 started "Last Date" again and deep-voiced M anncr sounding like a Caribbean accent.  0328 "Goodbye to Love" by the Carpenters then W anncr at 0359 (probably the pre-ToH BBC promo, 0400 time ticks and BBC nx //9460.   Came back later when the electricity was out due to an ice storm and found the freq clear of the UTE and W in EG w/rel. pgm at 0804.   Hindi mx at 0815 recheck then tried to air a rel. pgm but the audio was cutting out badly. 0829 deep-voiced M came on w/ID and apologized, then choral NA at 0830.   0831 different M anncr briefly and then what appeared to be the Koran.   Into a Pop mx pgm w/M DJ host.   Fading by 0840. Nice ID at 0848.   Nice to have them back on SW.   (2 Feb.)
