The Black Mass — The Witch of the Willows by Lord Dunsany

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.

Our tale today is The Witch of the Wil­lows, by Lord Dun­sany.
