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.

The old witch came towards Jorkins and the mystery that was haunting the Willows came with her. Would the cost for receiving her magic be too great?
