Today at 11am and 7pm Pacific Time (19:00 and 03:00 UK time), please join us for the latest in our continuing series of chilling landmark radio dramas by some of literature’s most famous authors.

The Black Mass was produced by Erik Bauersfeld and John Whiting at KPFA in Berkeley, California between 1963 and 1970, and is presented by kind permission of Erik Bauersfeld and Bay Area Radio Drama.

Today’s tale is The Jolly Corner by Henry James

Alice & Mrs. Muldoon: Pat Franklyn
Technical Production by: John Whiting
Music Composed by: Peter Winkler

Brydon’s childhood house is haunted by a figure who might have been himself. The ghost retreats but is finally confronted, hands before his face, refusing to see or be seen.

In conjunction with the broadcast, for listeners who are resident of Second Life, there will be an in‐world listening party for the 7pm Pacific performance, at the Bucket of Blood Public House in New Babbage:

Next week at the same time: The Judgement by Franz Kafka.
