The Latest: Man's loudspeaker broadcast of taps ends

November 30, 2017 - 6:57 PM

GLEN ROCK, Pa. - The Latest on the ending of a Pennsylvania man's loudspeaker broadcast of 'Taps' (all times local):

9:55 p.m.

A Pennsylvania man whose nightly broadcast of taps through loudspeakers led to lawsuit threats and complaints from his neighbours has played the recording for the last time.

Joshua Corney and about two dozen supporters stood for the playing of the taps Thursday night outside Corney's Glen Rock home.

Corney, a lieutenant commander in the Navy, had been playing the recording for about two years. He added the loudspeakers last spring.

He reached a compromise with the Glen Rock Borough Council on Nov. 15 after they voted to move the playing to a public park as part of a veteran's memorial.

Corney previously planned to wait to lower the volume until the speakers were set up, but moved it sooner after receiving trash talk on social media.

A Pennsylvania man whose nightly broadcast of taps through loudspeakers led to lawsuit threats and complaints from his neighbours says the recording will play for the last time this week.

Joshua Corney is inviting the public to his Glen Rock home to listen to the recording Thursday night over cookies and hot chocolate. He says he will turn down the recording for his personal use starting Friday.
