Pre-Halloween scary broadcast

A spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion edi­tion of Radio Riel will go out on Thurs­day the 25th of Octo­ber.

First up is a pre­sen­ta­tion of H.G. Wells’ The War of the Worlds radio adap­ta­tion by CBS’s Mer­cury The­atre On the Air. Adapt­ed by and writ­ten by Howard Koch, and famous­ly direct­ed by Orson Welles. Orig­i­nal­ly broad­cast on 30th of Octo­ber 1938 and caus­ing great con­tro­ver­sy at the time (not to men­tion cov­er­ing up the actu­al inva­sion by the red lec­troids). This broad­cast runs approx­i­mate­ly one hour.

Fol­low­ing this, is an exclu­sive pre­sen­ta­tion of Dark Adven­ture Radio The­atre’s ver­sion of H.P. Love­craft’s At the Moun­tains of Mad­ness. In the style of The War of the Worlds and The Shad­ow, Dark Adven­ture Radio The­atre dra­ma­tizes HPL’s sto­ry with a cast of pro­fes­sion­al actors, excit­ing sound effects and orig­i­nal music by Troy Ster­ling Nies (com­pos­er for The Call of Cthul­hu). Relive the excite­ment of 1930s radio with one of most excit­ing and fas­ci­nat­ing sto­ries: At the Moun­tains of Mad­ness.

Broad­cast with kind the per­mis­sion of the H.P. Love­craft His­tor­i­cal Soci­ety.
