CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice of Shangri-la). New happenings here! During my daily monitoring had often noted a very consistent format. Either cutting off at 1200* or if running somewhat past that, they always started the same musical loop (filler music) at 1201, until they turned off the transmitter. Now am hearing a very different format.

March 20 - No musical loop at 1201, but announcers, in Chinese, continued on till cut off at 1206*.

March 21 - No musical loop at 1201; program format not the usual PBS format, instead many short segments, with what sounded like a number of commercial announcements; format somewhat resembled a commercial station; all in Chinese; played some songs;
still on the air 1305+, long past their normal cut off time.

Ron, listening at Asilomar State Beach (near Monterey), California
