Witch City Radio, 6873.4 AM, 2316.  Music - difficult to identify because of large roar on and near signal.

Poor here :-(

Tuned in at 2323 UTC, "Welcome to My Nightmare" in progress.  Good AM signal in NY. My SDRPlay wants to lock on 6872.94 ish.  Nice wide audio too!  Off at 2339 UTC, right after e-mail address and demonic laughter.  Very enjoyable Halloween show, thanks!
