(York County) -- A York County man whose nightly broadcast of taps through loudspeakers led to lawsuit threats and complaints from his neighbors says the recording will play for the last time tonight.

Joshua Corney is inviting the public to his Glen Rock home to listen to the recording over cookies and hot chocolate.

He says he will turn down the recording for his personal use starting tomorrow.

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

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

Corney says tonight's event will start around 8:00 p.m.
