Happy Halloween Radio 6957.5 USB S3 in NY (frequency really noisey for me unfortunately)

2316: Andrew Lloyd Webber "The Phantom Of The Opera"
2319: Ella Fitzgerald "That Old Black Magic"
2321: Happy Halloween said by YL then into another oldies song but too low to I.D.
2326: Cream "Strange Brew"
2329: Moonlight Radio Shortwave I.D. then off the air

Seems to be halfway between 6957.5 kHz and 6957.6 kHz USB.

"Happy Halloween" heard at 2319 UTC.

Forgot to check my SDR recording until the morning of the 22nd (well, mid-afternoon UTC time), but I did get a very tenuous copy. Consistent audio at the noise floor beginning at 2309, ending at 2318. Nothing really clear, no ID heard.
