Hearing a nice signal via SDR in Maryland.with Hallowe'en skit .nice to hear the activity in tonight's broadcasts.....OM mentioned his Halloween special with "Welcome to my nightmare" by Alice Cooper @ 2226 UTC..

Gave the old Wellsville Mail drop @2233..mmmmmm
BUT gave this e-mail address @2244 hours as 'witchcityradio@gmail.com" then sign-off at 2245 hours.....

Sent a report to this e-mail address ,which does not work (bounced) back...
Here was report:

DETAILS:
2223  – Hallowe’en Special with a Skit, the Vampire’s Tale, then gave a special ‘welcome to my special’ then selection called “Welcome to my Nightmare” by Alice Cooper.
22.31-  after this selection scary laughing by your male announcer, gave the station ID as Witch City Radio. Followed with the old Wellsville Mail-drop, followed with the skit called “House of Usher”
22.38 - "Hear the noise", by Roderick played.
22.42 – This was followed with Peter Tosh - Dracula (Vampire sounds in background played.
