I wish I had my "DX Edge" with me, a neat map of the world with overlays projecting the grey line average for every month of the year. I'm wondering if maybe these receptions were via long-path?? Hmmm.
I recall back in the latter part of the 1980's, for a short time I was hearing African stations during our early lcl mornings down in the tropical bands. Naturally, those receptions were rare and definitely were opposite of the "normal" times to hear African stations below 6 mHz. (Glenn Hauser was calling me "Kirk 'Long-Path' Allen" during that time, ha ha.) What you reported sounds strikingly similar. Without my DX Edge, I really can't picture the greyline at the time you mentioned. I seriously doubt my thoughts on this are correct, but I'm very curious abt how and or why propagation like what you experienced occurs. It's very obvious I'm ignorant on MW propagation.
Anyone please comment on this??! Propagation of signals is a super-interesting topic in this old man's world....has been for over 40 years come to think of it.
73 to you!
