Nominally this is an Aero off route freq, but offhand I'd say you caught someone rebroadcasting a church service or similar. I've seen this reported in the maritime portion of the band, but only occasionally. In the maritime band, it's thought it's being done for the comfort of the sailors at sea, particularly if they don't have a chaplain on board. Out here, though, it's hard to guess.

8.989 USB answer

I just found this, but for many years I have monitored 8989khz and It has been used by Norad for strategic Bombers (Nukes). I have heard codes passed here since the late 1970's .

I have not listened of late, but last year it was still active.

That's not a broadcast frequency so what you heard was some sort of pirate, lid operator or spurious emission from a broadcast transmitter. The latter is not all that uncommon, some countries are notorious for poor transmitter maintenance and thumbing their noses at interference complaints.
