Hallowe’en: Music & Scary Tales

Moua­ha­ha­ha­hah­h­h­h­hh!  All Hal­lows Eve is approach­ing… Samhain… when the veil between the worlds is thin… and today on Radio Riel’s Main Stream, it’s  music for Hallowe’en with scary tales every two hours. Today we give you a sea­son­al col­lec­tion of music and a col­lec­tion of tales of mys­tery and imag­i­na­tion.

We’re pre­sent­ing a wide and some­times sur­pris­ing col­lec­tion of music dur­ing the day, vary­ing from clas­si­cal to rock and includ­ing a selec­tion of fan­ta­sy SF TV and movie themes to boot.

In addi­tion, every cou­ple of hours, you’ll hear a “Scary Tale”. They include old-time radio plays — and of course we are includ­ing the famous Orson Welles 1938 War of the Worlds, some pre­sen­ta­tions from that mas­ter of the macabre, Vin­cent Price, and E F Ben­son ghost sto­ries. There’s also Fred­er­ick Bradnum’s clas­sic play Pri­vate Dreams and Pub­lic Night­mares — the first BBC dra­ma to include Radio­phon­ic music, which led to the foun­da­tion of the BBC Radio­phon­ic Work­shop in 1957.
