I just tuned in and heard some music, ending at 5 o'clock with an 
announcement that the program was provided by "G&E Studio" (the agency 
for China Radio International); then the signal dropped with no sign-off 
announcement or station ID, and WBAL 1090 became audible on the channel.

CRI has a show called "The Shuffle", so perhaps that is what you heard.
