There are two distinct BC spurs on 1818 or so now. 

One is a "spitting" only on modulation peaks, it is very wide, and 
centers on 1817 or so. I've tracked that down to WABB in Mobile 
Alabama so I have that one and have just turned it in (along with 
three Airport NDB's and one other BC station).

The second is a buzzy spanish-speaking station around 1819 with 
faint audio detected by slope detecting on AM or using a narrow 
band FM detector. I can NOT get enough audio from that to get an 
audio match to any BC station I can hear. The bearing of that 
station is about 300 degrees from my QTH near Macon GA. 
W6TER and K4RX hear that mess also.

If anyone hearing the 1819 buzzy spur (that comes from almost 
due west of me) can get the call letters or an exact audio match to 
an AM station please let me know. If we don't keep after this stuff, 
the band will become an unusable mess.
