Sounded like Bob Marley, followed by an ID (that I couldn't make out) mentioning Halloween. Someone is now reading a story but I can't reammy make Much out.

Witch City Radio was down here earlier with a Halloween story. Not sure if it's them with a repeat or someone else
Pretty weak for me, but thanks for the show!

Witch City Radio coming in with a nice S6 signal and ID at 0300z. Sounds like the very end of the show; op announcing some vampire music.
35433 on 6919.6am.

0314z ... coming up in signal strength last 5 to 10 mins ... also, the 'mode' appears to be 6920 USB (PS there is no carrier) rather than AM at the moment ...

0315z peaks to S4 (it is quiet on the band tonight!)
0326z station appears to be off ...
