You are corroborating some posts I've made in the past about
WROL's lackadaisical adherence to power-up/power-down
rules.  In July , I mentioned that I picked up WROL
at 10:00 pm in Pittsfield over WPEN in Philly and WIBX from
Utica, NY. (I heard an official station ID at 10:00 pm;  power-down time
in July is 8:30).
This is not new to Salem;  in the Carbery days, I was at
a summer home-opening on the Cape of Cod, and the 
hostess, being Hibernian by heritage, had the Irish 
Hit Parade on a radio near the grill.  It continued being
clearly audible after 8:00 pm (this was Memorial Day weekend),
and later I checked out 950 on rt 6 while heading home, and 
WROL was quite audible over the PA and NY stations.  It was
so long ago, 950 in Presque Isle may still have been on.
