An SCP-xxxx broadcast location

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: The Foundation has set up a series of listening posts throughout the rural areas of Montana. When a new broadcast of SCP-xxxx is discovered, the signal should be blocked and the origin triangulated.

Description: SCP-xxxx is an anomalous Radio Station that appears in rural parts of Montana, typically in range of U.S. Highway 2. The station most often appears on the following frequencies: 92.3 FM, 93.1 FM, 95.5 FM, and 95.9 FM. While active, SCP-xxxx will play seemingly random songs; however a central theme can be found through the songs, such as loneliness, addiction, or dreams. Each night, at 11:59pm, a voice will interrupt the music and say the following line:

This is the last radio station for 500 miles, I am <Host>. There's no one on the road except you and me, and it's lonely out there. Please let me keep you company. Please. This is Last Light Radio.

The name of the host will change from instance to instance, along with the specific songs that are played.

The broadcast location for each instance changes, but several commonalities can be found. All broadcast locations are former broadcast or radio stations that have been abandoned for at least 5 years. The structures are more than 5km from major roads, but less than 10km. Lastly, all broadcast locations have animals bones, typically from large game, scattered throughout the building.

Addendum: On July 6th 2004, 19 year old Marcie Alvarez, from Wolf Point, Montana, was reported missing, along with her car and her father's handgun. The following day, the car was found abandoned by a nearby road. Alvarez and the handgun could not be found, and no fingerprints could be identified in the vehicle. A set of tire tracks, similar to SCP-xshermx were found by the vehicle.

Approximately three days later, a new instance of SCP-xxxx was discovered. The host was a female, who introduced herself as Mars and sounded either exhausted or in pain. A partial list of songs played during this instance have been recorded below.

  • "Go Tell Aunt Rhody" - Burl Ives
  • "The Hearse Song" - Towny Folk Hall1
  • "Mad World" - Tears for Fears
  • "The Sound of Silence" - Simon & Garfunkel
  • "God's Away On Business" - Tom Waits
  • "Hurt" - Johnny Cash (Cover)
  • "Hotel California" - The Eagles
  • "The End" - The Doors

The broadcast location was several hundred kilometers from where the vehicle was discovered. Additionally, an unknown IP address remotely accessed Ms. Alvarez' computer and downloaded a number of MP3 files and personal photos.
