918-Australian UnID in the Cook Islands-- 2XL in Cooma?

918 2XL Cooma Commercial 2k NSW
918 4VL Charleville Commercial 2k QLD

During a wild trip to Aitutaki in the Cook Islands in April of 2018 this very wild recording on 918 kHz was made at 1658 UTC on April 12th, with a 7.5" loopstick CC Skywave and 5" FSL antenna. It starts off with the Cambodian National Anthem from 918-RNK, the infamous "Cuckoo Clock" time pips at 1:41 (a mix of the time pips from Shandong in China, and RNZ from New Plymouth and Timaru) and an Australian UnID at near S9 level from 4:05 to 4:45. There is a musical into starting at 4:05 and finally a "Midnight, with Merv Starr" program identification at 4:36 into the recording. Does anybody know if this program was on 918-2XL overnight (or on 4VL, for that matter)? Any assistance from Oz would be appreciated-- thanks!  https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/qams92h5ktn7ki93u3qlvbzvyl3y8rru
