Urban Legend 1970’s Creepy Phone Number

Creepy phone number we'd call in the late 70’s and  early 80's. All you would hear was a ticking clock. Supposedly you would hear screams at midnight! Personally never heard the screams. Anyone remember?


What really was this number 278-1964? Before we had to use a prefix. 


Thank you!

It sounds like an urban legend. I did a quick google search and didn't find any results.

The 202 number above is the United States Naval Observatory clock.  See this link for other time zones.
