S5-S7 SIO 333 into the southeastern US with eerie music.

0155 OM mentioned transmitting with 50 watts of sideband power. -- I think I recognize this DJ, but it feels like years since I've listened to shortwave pirates, so I'll have to wait for an ID.

0152 UTC: Just tuned in and not a bad signal S3 peaks on a fairly quiet band. Not sure the genre of the music being played but sounds nice.

Mr. Sycko followed XFM 0145z , 4185 USB.
Fair to good signal through heavy local RFI on the backyard portable. Doors "People are Strange," maybe Peter Murphy?
0236z faded out to the outdoor portable and home receiver, switched to SDR. Very good via east coast SDR, Halloween movie theme music.
0240z Frankenstein, not sure if Edgar Winter Group or other.
0246z Sycko Radio ID and Halloween greetings

My listening observations are that I heard various Halloween sound effects, and some of the Halloween movie sound tracks, and other great stuff there.   It was a good show to kick off the Halloween season.  Radio used was the Tecsun PL-368 with a long wire antenna.

Strong and steady signal into the Washington DC area. A little hard to hear at times due to static QRN.

0155: Tubular bells type version of Beethoven, Moonlight Sonata. Op compliments X-FM broadcast and mentions he is running 50 watts of sideband power.
0201: The Doors, "People Are Strange"
0204: She Wants Revenge, "Tear You Apart"
0209: Bauhaus, "Bela Lugosi's Dead"
0212: Bobby Pickett, "Monster Mash"
0215: Other HFU posters ID this as Cab Calloway. Could be.
0218: Sycko Radio ID, then unid song
0221: Another unid song
0227: Rosemary's Baby theme
0237: Exorcist theme
0241: Various eerie noises and evil laughter
0242: Another unid song
0246: Sycko Radio ID, Happy Halloween barely audible above other eerie noises and evil laughter
0254: Sycko Radio ID, Devil's Night special broadcast, time for your electroshock therapy. Followed by 10+ minutes of eerie noises and music.

Thanks for the show!
