Well I remember being out on my back porch with a portable radio around midnight
that night, and I heard the ID and the toilet flush then I think they
went into a syndicated
program, and maybe they went local at 6 am. (I didn't record it; just listened.)

And this is confirmed by typing "WHDH toilet flush" into the search
engine, and I wind up
with "At midnight, August 28 (1994), the last WHDH
programming came to an end, and an anonymous board operator sent the
station to the history books with a recorded toilet flush"

It continues to say that they went to Imus at 5:30 am followed by Dale
Arnold at 10.
