Hallowe’en: Music & Scary Tales

Moua­ha­ha­ha­hah­h­h­h­hh!  All Hal­lows Eve… 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 two hours, tune in to 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.
