Steampunk: Tales from New Babbage, The Red Haired Girl

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.
