Weak/fair signal with what sounded like a psychedelic song into what now sounds like a Halloweenish radio play. Older sounding narrator over music and sinister laughter.

By 2305 or so, the signal's starting to get pretty good. Twilight Zone beginning audio a couple of times, then a segment of a woman talking (possibly from the show) and it's seemed to degenerate into bits of her words repeating and now other words and sounds repeating.

Fun listening during the snowstorm
