Late for Hallowe’en: Music & Scary Tales

in Daily Programme, Radio Riel Main

by Elrik Merlin on Saturday, 1 November, 2014

Mouahahahahahhhhhh!  All Hallows Eve… Samhain… when the veil between the worlds is thin.. and today on Radio Riel’s Main Stream, albeit a day late, it’s eerie music — with scary tales every even‐numbered hour Pacific Time*. Today we present a seasonal collection of music and a collection of tales of mystery and imagination for those of you who are partying on.

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.

But in addition, be sure to tune in at the top of every even‐numbered hour Pacific Time* (2am, 4am, 6am etc Pacific Time) 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, in case you missed it earlier in the week — 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.

*If you’re using Pacific Time, there will be a scary tale starting on every even‐numbered hour. However, if you’re in Britain where the hour went back last weekend, they’ll be on odd‐numbered hours. Confused yet? We are!
