    The only other thing it could be on 9420 is Egypt, and I haven’t heard them with audio that clear in years and years. Eibi lists them as being in Russian during a different timeslot, so I do think it may have been Greece in one of their more, um, “eclectic” musical selections. I’ve heard them play some pretty Middle Eastern-sounding stuff before.

    I seriously doubt about the identity of the program named: “Voice of Greece”.
    I believe it is another station.
