Main: New Age and The Black Mass

As we are between Christ­mas and New Year, today we’re play­ing relax­ing New Age tracks to help you wind down after the hec­tic peri­od just past.

But in addi­tion, we have a ghost­ly treat for you in the tra­di­tion of Ghost Sto­ries At Christ­mas, in the form of episodes of the clas­sic land­mark radio dra­ma series The Black Mass, which we’ll be broad­cast­ing at the even-num­bered hours through­out the day.

Fea­tur­ing drama­ti­sa­tions of short sto­ries by writ­ers includ­ing Dos­to­evsky and Gogol as well as more char­ac­ter­is­ti­cal­ly chill­ing authors such as Bram Stok­er, Edgar Allen Poe and H P Love­craft, The Black Mass was a series of 30 ground-break­ing radio dra­mas, cre­at­ed in the 1960s at the world’s first sub­scriber-fund­ed radio sta­tion, Paci­fi­ca sta­tion KPFA in Berke­ley, Cal­i­for­nia, by Erik Bauers­feld, John Whit­ing and their asso­ciates. We are hon­oured to be able to present this series thanks to per­mis­sion from the late Erik Bauers­feld, with audio mate­ri­als from John Whit­ing, who per­formed most of the orig­i­nal audio pro­duc­tion.

Our logo for the series was designed spe­cial­ly by Ter­ry Light­foot of To A T Designs.
