The Radio Riel Players Present is Radio Riel’s independent radio production of classic stories, poems and plays, all performed by The Radio Riel Players from around the world. “Tales from New Babbage” are darker stories brought to you by the residents of the Steampunk City‐State of New Babbage. As they say in New Babbage, what could possibly go wrong?

Good help is so hard to find, but what do you do when your family is complaining about a maid that you don’t remember hiring? Tonight, New Babbage’s favorite red, Junie Ginsburg, reads The Red Haired Girl, by Sabine Baring‐Gould (1834–1924).

Sabine was an eclectic scholar and folklorist whose best known work is the hymn Onward Christian Soldiers. Oddly, he is also noted for writing The Book of Were‐Wolves, the 16 volume The Lives of the Saints, and the popular Curious Myths of the Middle Ages, which was an overview of medieval superstition.

Tales from New Babbage runs on Radio Riel Steampunk today at both 12:00pm and 8:00pm North American Pacific time.
